Mark Keeley Solo Show (afternoon)
We all know Mark from "Mark Keeley's Good Rocking Tonight" which draws large audiences wherever they appear. It's easy to forget that the multi-talented Mark also has hugely successful solo "Elvis" and "Faking Stevens" shows. During his career Mark has supported Bill Hayley's Comets, Marti Wilde, Buddy Holly's Crickets, The Drifters, Joe Longthorne, Showaddywaddy and Freddie Star to name a few. He has appeared on numerous television channels and toured all over the world.
Vintage are a young three piece Rock and Roll band that never cease to amaze their audiences. To hear such classics from a band so young is awesome - the 50's and 60's are being revisited...They've been gigging live now for around four years and play an array of hits from Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bill Hayley, Eddie Cochran and Chuck Berry - to name but a few.
Arguably the highlight of the weekend The Kingcats - usual lineup Bill Crittenden (Guitar and Vocals) , Kevin Swain (Bass), Gabriel Allen, Rusty Lupton (Keyboard) and Kevin Bulford - have a huge following within the rock and roll scene. Bill's unique voice combined with the individual talents of the rest of the band create a sound that draws you to the dancefloor like a magnet or compels you to just stand and watch in awe.
