Local Gospel Band. Opening our show as it’s a Sunday, some local musicians have put together a modern take on some gospel music, with a pinch of prog rock thrown in, to provide what will be a fun and uplifting experience. Its so new we don’t even have pictures as yet!  However don’t let the lack of imagery fool you – this is an act not to be missed on Sunday.

Original Lycanda Rockin’ Blues Band. Back in 1971 some young school boys set up a band and called themselves Lycanda. They were writing their own edgy material even then and also playing “The Blues.” Time gave them a small window until Punk arrived and Blues was thrown back into the archives. Reunited once more we are very pleased to have this unique band at our show on Sunday.
