Melton Gig Guide: May 8 to 10

Have your say

Melton favourites Shine are back, live at the Genny B on Friday.

The new band line-up features the outstanding Artit (Arty) Burasite who takes over on lead vocals, and along with top bass player Nick Hudson, this exciting new Shine boasts probably the finest line-up ever!

Squeezebox (The Noels, Friday) are a little more generous with the rock ‘n’ roll than most: more My Generation than Build me up Buttercup!

Live, to the very last, just amps and Fenders, and maybe a touch of stick twirling. A professional and entertaining live band.

BaKlash bring high voltage rock ‘n’ roll to the White Hart on Friday.

Bands featured include the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, T-Rex, Sabbath, Fleetwood Mac, Deep Purple, Pistols and AC/DC to make a night of energy, sweat and good tunes guaranteed.

Slither Rock (Generous Briton, Saturday) put the R-O-C-K into rock, featuring an amalgamation of great talent from various bands. Rockin’ the house down wherever they play.

Wellard Willy (The Noels, Saturday) have 150 years of experience between them and in Jez Brace, the best front man in the business.

They certainly know how to rock ‘n’ roll, featuring local ‘Noelite’ Johnny Antcliffe on guitar. Expect lots of fun, Bowie, Stones, Mott the Hoople, Wings, Alice cooper and many more.

Daryl Kirkland plays the best of the 1950s and 60s at the Noels on Sunday. Expect lots of 60s jangletastic rock ‘n’ roll, Beatles-type frenzy along with the Kinks and soul. A lively, entertaining set, great for singing along to.

Acoustic duo Player II (The Crown, Sunday) feature singer Dave Rogers and guitarist Andy Gurski (both of Indio Black fame).

Their music always reflects what people are currently listening to, played alongside classics such as Faith and their Many of Horror which are well worth a listen.
