Having already played at several venues including the Shed in Leicester, The Railway Tavern in Nuneaton and Karns in Hinckley; their next performance will be at Harry’s Bar in Hinckley on Friday 9th May at 8.30pm. Entry is free and the band will be playing some new material.
They also supported a recent Charity Gig organised by the college and held at The Queens Hall in Nuneaton. Over £250 was raised for the British Heart Foundation.
Vocalist and guitarist Kieran Dawson said “Everyone in the band’s passion is music. If we’re not playing music, we’re listening to it, and if we’re not listening to it, we’re thinking about it. King Edward’s College has really helped us to progress our music. If we had not all come to KEGS, we would not all have met, and wouldn’t be able to collaborate in the way we have”
