The alchemy of Queen and the sexual chemistry of Freddie Mercury were ably mixed by ‘Gary Mullen & The Works’.

One night of Queen had locals and visitors of all ages standing and waving to Queens greatest Anthems.

While not physically an exact replica of Mercury, Mullen delivers the showmanship, daring and repartee of Freddie Mercury, as well as the energy to carry on over two hours of classic Queen.

Hits such as Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody as well as We are the Champions to name but a few on the set list.

To complete the chemistry, guitarist Davie Brockett gives forth a splendid solo instrumental, with riffs Brian May would be proud of.

Then the excellent drum solo from Jonathan Evans; no less impressive as his sense of rhythm and skill are reminiscent of Roger Taylor.

Billy Moffat is well able to deliver the Bass rhythm, with keyboard from Malcolm Gentles completing the sound.

By the second half, the place was electric with members of the audience strumming air guitars in the isle and responding to audience participation, from Mullen possessed with the Mercurial skill to work an audience to fever pitch.
