Dennis Delight have been around for over 40 years, led by founder member Frank Halliwell.

With original member Mick McGreavy, they won the Blackpool Evening Gazette’s Rock Battle Competition in 1983.

But Mick stopped performing live six years ago and these days Frank is joined onstage by Clark Taylor, formerly of another city band, Fat Lad’s Brother, who joined after coming to shows as a fan, and by 23-year-old Paul Swindells.
