The Band Du Lac is Gary Brooker's brainchild. A random collection of concerned
musicians and celebrities both past and present, these good-natured guys
and gals get together under the famous keyboardist's tutelage for
various charitable events, playing before black-tie crowds in hopes of
coercing a few extra pounds out of their pockets. Assisting such
well-meaning organizations as the King Edward VII Hospital and HASTE
(Heart and Stroke Trust Endeavor), the founding father of Procol Harum
has called upon friends like Eric Clapton, Bob Geldof, Phil Collins,
Mike Rutherford, Roger Taylor, Ringo Starr, and Andy Fairweather Low to
aid in these star-studded showcases.
As a souvenir of the concert-going experience, One Night Only Live is a
middling musical experience. The only artist running on all six skill
cylinders is Eric Clapton, and even then he appears on auto pilot some
of the time. Ringo Starr is so sharp during his three songs that he
often sounds a full half-step above the melody. Brooker brings down the
house with his rendition of Harum's classic "Whiter Shade of Pale," but
it would have been nice to include other favorites like "A Salty Dog" or
"Conquistador." Roger Taylor (of Queen fame) argues for his place
behind the drum kit as he works his way through three weak numbers.
It's Katie Melua, Brit babe flavor of the moment, who sticks out like a
novice sore thumb here. With a voice that's a fragile, shrill instrument
and a stage presence consisting exclusively of fashionable clothing and
a mass of carefully coiffed curls, she's all style and very, very
little substance. In fact, she performs no original music here. Instead,
she favors the incredibly receptive crowd with tunes penned by others,
including John Mayall ("Crawling Up the Hill") and the man responsible
for her sudden ascension to the top of the U.K. charts, musician Mike
Batt ("My Aphrodisiac Is You," "The Closest Thing to Crazy"). In some
ways, it's like including the adult contemporary version of Britney
Spears as part of your charity showcase.
However, the real death knell for this otherwise noble effort is the
arrival of the so-called Drifters. Since the original incarnation of the
vocal group began in 1953 (!), it is clear that this version contains
no founding members. In fact, a little bit of research reveals that this
edition represents an offshoot faction of the original band, the result
of a split that occurred in the late '60s/ early '70s when money and
musical direction divided the group. This U.K. unit had several
disco-inspired hits in Britain, yet none of these songs are featured.
Instead, in between the hip-hop chants and urbanized audience
interaction (lots of "yo, yo, yos!" here), they belt out "Under the
Boardwalk" and "Stand by Me." It is safe to say that most of the singers
present weren't even born or, if alive, weaned when these songs were
first on the charts nd the lame, uninspired karaoke-style singalongs we
have to sit through are guaranteed to make old-school sockhoppers weep.
Besides, their entire "too cool" bluster just seems wrong here. No one
primps and preens around the stage. Clapton is breezy and collected
while Ringo throws a few flimsy hand signs, but The Drifters are out to
wow the stuffed-shirt audience with their false bravura and it just
feels wrong. Indeed, should men out in support of a charity devoted to
heart and stroke patients be bouncing around on stage in arch
athleticism? The Drifters destroy any semblance of respect one has for
the show, leaving Band Du Lac to limp along to its bland band-jam
