“The band are known for classic rock covers, including Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb and Black Sabbath’s Paranoid but especially the music of Jimi Hendrix. Hey Joe, Purple Haze and Voodoo Chile all feature in the set list.

“Tony Wood, on guitar and vocals, fronts the band, supported by the driving rhythm section of Russ Burns on bass and Tim Rice on the drums.

“Friday’s customers can look forward to some inventive guitar work including picking with the teeth and playing behind the neck.”
