*************** FEATURED ARTISTS ***************
*** The Jump Devils ***
The Jump Devil’s sound harks back to the days of the 1940’s before the arrival of rhythm and blues and rock and roll. Naturally with up-tempo, infectiously danceable tunes ringing in your ears, it’s little wonder you’ll want to dance the night away at a gig like this.
Featuring Alf Mott (Drums), John Walton (Bass), Mark Harpo Greenway (Guitar) and Chris Stibbo Hanger (Vocals/Harp).
*** Geoff Acheson & Band ***
