Three Big Gigs in March – Not to be missed!

We have a feast in store for music lovers at the end of March.

First up, Wille and the Bandits, supported by new band Blackballed, on Friday 23rd.

Having toured their unique brand of roots rock with the likes of Deep Purple, Joe Bonamassa, The John Butler Trio and Status Quo, Wille and the Bandits are now proudly touring their brand new, critically acclaimed album ‘Breakfree’.
The band are famous for creating an astonishingly huge sound, incorporating eclectic grooves from World music to Heavy Rock, using bizarre instrumentation such as Tongue Drum, Djembe, Lap steel guitar and Double bass they push the boundaries of what is expected of a modern three piece.

Then, the following week, on Wednesday 28th, Bob Log III – a spaceman playing a gig, not to be missed.

Bob Log III, Fat Possum recording artist and one man band crown prince of punk blues from Tuscon, Arizona. Witnessing Bob Log live is an unmissable and unforgettable experience.

And the following night, Thursday 29th, Dub Pistolsfestival favourites play in Leek.

“The band’s reputation as an explosive live act has seen them turn into super-tight festival regulars, with the Dub Pistols headlining some of the biggest festivals in Europe including Glastonbury, Bestival and Beat-Herder. Their bass-driven live machine has seen them win numerous plaudits along the way and recent live guests have included vocalists Rodney P, The Specials’ Terry Hall and Neville Staple, rap wünderkid T.K., Sugardaddy horn-blower Tim Hutton & scratch maestro, DJ Stix.”
