Sour Candys are an east midlands based acoustic duo performing classic sing-a-long pop, rock and country hits from 1960s to the present day.

Lightstream play music by top bands such as Oasis, Razorlight, Kings of Leon and Franz Ferdinand. You'll feel the buzz when they hit the stage. Add in floor-filling rock tracks by Bryan Adams, Queen, Fountains of Wayne and The Boss himself and you have a recipe for a rip-roaring good time. There'll be no downtime on the dance floor that's for sure.

New Dimension will give you rock classics with a twist. Ever heard the Sweet Child riff on the trumpet? The talented & energetic members of this young local band bring their own unique arrangements of rock classics such as Bon Jovi, Ozzy, Journey, Foo Fighters, Queen and more. You will be up and rocking to the new sounds of old favourites.

Lee Robertshaw will play a set of acoustic versions of great songs by popular indie, rock and folk artists from the 60's to present day

Fallen Angel is a new collaboration by four very experienced musicians who thought it was time to bring something new to the classic rock covers band banner. Played with the energy and power expected of Classic Rock bands, Fallen Angel deliver their music in a no nonsense, uncompromising manner that will have you nodding your head, tapping your feet, and bring stuff to your ears that you might not know, but will not forget! Don't worry, there will be some old favourites in there as well!
