Have your say

Young rock band Velocity bring the year to an end with a bang at the Generous Briton on New Year’s Eve.

AC/DC delivered with passion and energy together with a smattering of some of their own self-penned tracks too,

Sounds Rite bring in the new year over at The Grapes featuring brothers John and Ronnie Horton.

The two local lads first performed together back in 1972 in a band called Triax which enjoyed many years of success. John and Ronnie now perform as a duo, playing rock, pop and ballads from the last five decades.

The Rhythm Revellers are back in Melton this New Year’s Eve with a different flava!

Playing hits spanning five decades with music from Martha Reeves, Wilson Picket and Spencer Davis Group, they bring it right bang up to date with hits from Daft Punk, Rihanna and Bruno Mars. From rock to pop, and funk to punk.

Go along to The saddle in Twyford and ride into the new year as The Cheeze take the reins and trot out proper old school pop and rock music.

Local rock god, axemaster and top bloke Ray Callcut will be performing classic songs for your delectable delight at Hamilton Tennis Club.

Sing your hearts out to tracks such as Dude Looks Like a Lady and Kyrie, and round off 2014 in fantastic company.
