The Bloody Marys – The Lemon tree - 23/09/11
So, The Bloody Marys are back… and tonight it looks like they’re playing to a Lemon Tree that looks like it’s at least half full, maybe 300 people or so. No support band and its straight into the BM show. They play two sets, first one lasted about an hour and the second I think was just over so it’s a good night if this is your kinda thing. The music is a mixed bag of songs with a disco-ey vibe injected into them if they didn’t already have it. I’m sure I’ve missed some but I recall BM versions of songs from Abba, Boney M, Lady Gaga, Queen, and even a dip into the soundtrack of The Rocky Horror Show with I’m just a Sweet Transvestite.
As the images below will show you there are costume changes during the break and somehow this seems to get the women of the audience even more into the swing of things. It’s all good fun and the women (and some of the men ) clearly love the BM. There may be more than one man in Aberdeenshire getting a pair of stockings from Santa this year, and if so I reckon The Bloody Marys will have had something to do with it. SB.
