WELL-LOVED Warrington band ‘the 66’ is reforming for a special gig to celebrate the life and music of former frontman Danny Rimmer.
Led by his younger brother Liam Rimmer, the band will be taking to the stage on Friday 12 August at Eagle Sports & Social Club, for a one-off hometown performance.
The event marks ten years since Danny’s death and will give friends, family, and fans from across the region a chance to pay tribute to the popular frontman.
Formed in 2007, the 66 propelled themselves to local legend status, thanks to their unforgettable live performances.
Highly rated by music journalists and gig-goers, the 66 made a huge impact on the local scene and far beyond, with shows at Hard Rock Cafe Manchester, Liverpool Sound City and Dublin Castle, to name just a few.
Liam Rimmer, Danny’s Brother said: “I don’t think I know how to describe what this night personally means to me but I know what it represents, an incredible life, all be-it short, a life celebrated, a life remembered, and life loved.
“This gig will be a swirling, emotional, foot stomping celebration, an all-out homage to not only Danny but to our friends and family, who have certainly kept me here at times. I’ll see you down at the front!”
The special event will see original band members Mike Bee, Craig Harman and Paul Glover joined by Liam Rimmer on lead vocals and Chris Peake on drums.
