THE MIGHTY POONS
What is a Mighty Poon? Well, it’s not a Mediterranean fishing implement. 
It’s a 7 piece rock band featuring some of the finest musicians in the whole world....well, maybe not the world, but certainly Scotland. The Mighty Poons, or “The Poons”, as they have become to be known, was formed by Rupert Black, who was the keyboard player with such well known bands as The Pretenders, Talk Talk, The Alarm and Midge Ure, and David Bell, the singer from Big Vern ‘N’ the Shootahs. Their idea was to create a band that would allow them to play their favourite rock songs from the The Old Grey Whistle Test years, great songs that very few bands play nowadays, but which everybody knows.
For those not familiar with TOGWT, it was a 70’s version of Later with Jools Holland, featuring live performances from bands like Led Zeppelin, Argent, Focus, The Who, Little Feat, Fanny etc. 
So, plundering the musical talent around Glasgow, they found other like-minded musicians. Ian Macfarlane, the guitarist with Life and Soul, Neil Mcbain, a drummer who worked with David Bowie, The Kinks and The Blow Monkeys and is hewn from the very DNA of 70’s rock drummers. 2018 saw the Humph Family bass player, Kenny Gair come on board, and then a powerful addition to the band has been the “Wonderlungs”, Marj, from The Eurythmacs, and Shoot the Craw, and Janice from The Sensational David Bowie Tribute Band on lead and backing vocals. 
The band deliver a powerful mix of rock music from the 70’s and 80’s, covering everything from Jethro Tull, Clapton, Genesis. Pink Floyd via ELP, Lindisfarne, and Manfred Mann’s Earthband, to It Bites! 
So, if you like your rock to be of the classic variety, the musicianship to be of the top quality, and a band that tends not to take itself too seriously, then a night of top tunes from The Old Grey Whistle Test years with The MIGHTY POONS is an absolute and total MUST!
