With two weeks to go until tghe concert, which also features three other Warrington bands, I caught up with singer/guitarist Dean Fairhurst, drummer Peter Fleming and local music promoter Lee Harman, on a freezing cold night in Palmyra Square.
The event helps celebrate five years of Warrington Music (WAM), which was founded by Lee to help support and promote the work of local bands and musicians.
Only around 30 standing tickets remain for the show which takes place on March 16th – a perfect warm up gig b efore Slydigs take to the the stage for a charity show at the Royal Albert Hall in London alongside iconic rock band Def Leppard!
This follows on from their successful tour supporting The Who!
