The Rob Deering Experience - One4Review
After a gap of a few years Rob Deering his trusty guitar and pedal bank return to the Fringe and are we pleased to see him back? You bet we are.
There is a lot less of him that before, having lost a lot of weight, but his comedy talent together with his playing and singing is there in abundance.
Deering is a very pleasant chap, always smiling and has a lovely set this year as always, and given his musical abilities it does tend to make up a fair proportion of his hour.
Something he has introduced since the last time I saw him is the mash up section where he plays one tune but sings a different song over this backing and of course it turns into a bit of an audience quiz. Okay this can be practiced but he then takes audience suggestions and instantly does them too. An excellent idea which went down well with one and all.
Creating music live is always a mainstay of his act. Armed with a few pedals and all manner of electronic gubbins, his multi-layering and live looping is as always a major talent he exhibits and just has to be seen. It’s just amazing.
