Babs, Deb and Steve are brother and sisters, a relationship they believe has contributed to their longevity.

As well as their own material, tonight’s crowd can look forward to hearing the band’s versions of rock classics from the likes of Free, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Cream, Jethro, Tull, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the sensational Alex Harvey Band.

It starts around 9.30pm and the event is free.
