Kevin Took

In November 1998, I was asked to dep as a keyboard player for the house band at the regular Blues/Rock Jam Night at The Hop Poles, Enfield. This house band later became a five-piece Rock/Pop covers band called Easy Access.

 

The band played in various pubs around London and the Home Counties as well as appearing at the Porsche Convention at the Brighton Pavillion Dome. They also auditioned for the role of "Drunk Wedding Band" for a Kevin Costner film called "The Upside of Anger", performing the Bob Seger song "Betty-Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight". When their audition finished, one of the casting directors told the band that he couldn't fault their musicianship at all, but didn't think they would look convincing as drunk musicians!

 

Easy Access performed their final gig at The Coach and Horses in Isleworth, Middlesex in December 2006.
