WHAT does one get on a full-moon night, with bands playing everything from rock, jazz, blues and reggae? Random chaos!


The Anonymous 5 concert at Redbones Blues Café in St Andrew last Friday featured the bands Random Chaos, Brainstorm, Downstairs, Wayne McGregor and Friends and Jason Lee Worton.


Random Chaos set the pace with bandleader, lead singer and show promoter Dominique Brown. They did two originals in That Gun and Ganja Ganjaria, as well as Beautiful Lie, White Rabbit, Red and Lady Gaga's Paparazzi.


Brainstorm revealed the rapping ability of Joel Ashbourne, who also showed his skills on keyboards; his brother Jeremy stood out on drums. Their bandmates, rapper Darryl Roberts and singer Tobi, also contributed immensely to Rap Is Life, Party Vibes and Dekimasu.


Worton was scheduled to launch the video for his new song, Then Here It Comes but that was postponed due to circumstances beyond his control. However, that did not drown his spirit.


His stint included Lee 'Scratch' Perry's I'm a Mad Man, his originals Wake Up and I Believe In Us and Dennis Brown's General.


Wayne McGregor and Friends put the lid on the evening with a lively set. Katie Edwards stood out with the Tina Turner standard, Proud Mary (Rolling On The River). Their rendition of the Michael Franti/Cherine Anderson hit, Say Hey (I Love You) were among the songs that had the venue humming.
