These are the bands you’ve been looking for!

The DaveFest team have put together another great evening of stellar live music, pan-galactic drinks and a meteor storm of fun at the Foxlowe Arts Centre, Leek.
The evening starts at 7.30pm with a chance to meet some of your favourite film stars – courtesy of Imperial Icons – who are, quite literally, from another planet. Some great Facebook profile photo opportunities and why not try a glass of the specially created themed cocktail too?

Kicking off the music will be Merryhell. Headliners at the 2012 Great British Folk Festival and recently nominated for best group in the Spiral Earth’s – Spiral Awards 2012, this 7-piece folk-rock outfit have successfully earned themselves an enviable reputation for high energy gigs, anthemic songs and politically charged questioning lyrics.

With plenty of room for dancing, and a late licensed bar taking you through to midnight, Elvis Fontenot and the Sugar Bees, bring Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp ‘n’ Roll from the bayous of Staffordshire. Twice winners of “European Zydeco band of the Year” and featuring European Rub-board player of the year, EFSB have featured on BBC radio with Andy Kershaw and Mike Harding, have been on TV in Austin, Texas and featured on radio stations across America and Australia. They have played the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans twice, plus other venues in Louisiana and Austin, Texas and numerous UK festivals. Laissez les bons temps rouler! as they say in NewOrleans.

Tickets for this unique event are likely to go fast, so get tickets now, I would.

Tickets are just 7.50 of your English pounds from Colloco, Sheepmarket, Leek. (£10 on the door)
