It is always a blast when the Boogie Patrol comes to Lethbridge.

Their set seemed to feature a lot of new music as well as tracks from their last two CDs.

 But most of it  seemed to be new music which had most of the crowd getting all hot and sweaty on the dance floor.

 They didn’t have a keyboard player, but  that wasn’t missed much as guitarist Yuji Ihara supplied gorgeous leads while frontman Dan Shinnan blew stunning harp solos and danced and writhed in front his microphone, wringing every last drop of soul out of each and every note.

Ihara and Shinnan got the crowd pumped up and even jumped off the stage and wandered amongst them, blowing that beautiful harp and playing  shining leads. Remaining on stage, bassist Nigel Gale and drummer JJ stayed locked in while their band mates wandered, dancing with the audience while not missing a note.

They ended their set with  “Bathe With Your Woman, a crowd pleaser from  their last album.
