Have your say

Bingham-based Contraband bring their different styles of rock to the Royal Horseshoes, Waltham on Friday.

They have been playing together for two years and played at large festivals within the area such as Deerstock in 2013, and Party in the Park last year.

Lively trio Baker’s Treat (Genny B, Friday) feature tight vocal harmonies and a great combination of instruments to perform catchy, well-known hits from throughout the decades.

Riot Act are live at the Noel’s Arms on Friday for the first time this year, playing all your favourite rock and metal classics from AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Metallica to softer rock such as The Cult, Led Zeppelin and Lynrd Skynyd.

Tin Soldier rock out at The White Hart on Friday with classics from AC/DC, The Clash, The Vapors and The Buzzcocks. Classic and contemporary rock with a touch of punk played with passion and energy.

Squeeze into that party frock and gather your rowdiest friends as Indio Black return to the Generous Briton on Saturday.

Expect great music, plenty of jigging, lame jokes, new songs and the customary frantic night.

The Pesky Alligators (Noels, Saturday) promise an explosive sound with an impromptu flow of material, homegrown originals and unique interpretations of Dolly Parton and Motorhead.

Four-piece Mama Don’t Allow (White Hart, Sunday) comprise boogie piano, stand-up bass, drums, guitar and vocals to play good time rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll jump jive by artists such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis, Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Leicester-based acoustic duo Red Lips (The Crown, Sunday) are Ben Hartmann on guitar and Amy Morson Liggins on vocals who play soul, Motown, rock and pop.

Dan Britton returns to The Noels on Sunday afternoon, fronting The Flying Fajita Brothers, playing classic country, rockabilly and blues from the likes of Elvis and Johnny Cash.
