Originally formed in 2015 as a recording project, the band changed direction towards live performances when drummer Carl Mallison joined in 2016.

Mike Collinge, from Bacup, on bass completes the rhythm section. Nick Bold, from Bolton, on guitar and vocals, fronts the band.

He promises Friday’s audience an evening of ‘killer originals and well chosen covers’.

A rock blues guitarist, Nick toured most of the world with the band Virginia Wolf.

He wrote and recorded the band’s two albums which were released on Atlantic Records.

‘For a laugh”, he appeared as George Harrison on the TV programme Stars In Their Eyes. To his great surprise, he continues to imitate the late guitarist performing in a Beatles tribute band for two months of the year, mainly in Germany.

Nick has also been a regular visitor to America where he has supported Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page on tour.

Promoter Dave Mann said: “Given the band’s pedigree, I’m sure Friday’s audience will be richly entertained.”

Starts 9.30pm.
