“Marvin The Magnificent”
Hemsby Review

Next came one of the true originators, Marvin Rainwater, who was backed up by the (now) famous Hemsby House Band lead by Wayne Hopkins and including Antonio Coni on brilliant lead guitar and Clive Osbourne on sax. Again, this was a no frills, straight in your face rock ‘n’ roll set as Marvin opened up with ‘Love Me Baby’ quickly followed by his No. 1 UK hit ‘Whole Lotta Woman’ and ‘I Dig You Baby. Pausing for breath, Marvin advised us that the lead guitarist in his band The Rockin’ Tomahawks back in the fifties had been none other than Roy ‘Please Mr. Mayor’ Clark who went onto become a country music superstar and showman of the highest order.

Rainwater certainly knew what the crowd wanted to hear as he served up ‘Mr. Blues’, ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’ and his own paean to that infamous ale from Newcastle with ‘Newkie Brown’. He and the band were cooking rockin’ hot with ‘Rovin’ Gambler’, ‘Wild Man’ and a great ‘Boo Hoo’. One of his newer numbers is ‘Rockabilly Music Coming Down’ and this demonstrated that this guy, who is now in his eighties, has no lessening in his love for rockin’ music. Next came ‘Rock Me’ which was oh so familiar and this became apparent as he repeated the number, with amended lyrics’ as ‘Dance Me Daddy’. Seemingly back in the sensitive fifties, the lyrics had been deemed to be too suggestive and therefore had to be ‘cleaned up’. This exciting and enjoyable set came to a conclusion with ‘Rockin’ Down The Walls’ and the classic ‘Hot And Cold’. File under Marvin The Magnificent.
