A local Newark band faithfully recreating classic rock and pop covers from the 60’s to the present day. Formed in 2006 and consisting of a wealth of experience this, surprisingly, is their first appearance at the Beer Festival.

Saturday 25th May

1.45pm – 2.30pm
An Acoustic rock covers band from Nottingham kick things off with more gentle interpretations of songs by bands such as Coldplay, Kasabian, U2 and the Rolling Stones. Nothing too much for those delicate heads.

Time to shake up those brain cells once again with today’s installment

6.30pm – 7.40pm
Nottingham’s premier Rock and Blues band make their debut appearance at our Festival after a superb set at last year’s Nottingham Beer Festival. Regulars of the pub and club circuit around Nottingham/Derby know all about this band, now it’s your turn to find out just how good they are.

8.40pm – 10pm
After a storming set last year on the Saturday afternoon it is with great pleasure that we invite Parker back to headline this year’s festival. A four piece covers band from Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire, they have a very diverse set list, covering such artists as The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age and the Beatles. If you like your performances gritty, rockin’ and with attitude, don’t miss these guys.
