Friday 21st July
Bad Touch
Bad Touch are a young UK based rock band who formed 6 years ago whilst all the members were still in school or college. Like most bands the early years were spend toiling away in local pubs playing covers of some rock classics whilst at the same time introducing some of their own compositions into an ever expanding set. During these formative years the band began to get noticed and soon due to their dynamic live shows became favourites at many local venues.
Eventually the bands original material took precedence and it was not long before they recorded their first EP at the Leeders Farm Studio – home of local hero’s The Darkness.
The desire to get their music to a wider audience led the band to seek gigs around the country and this was instrumental in the band being awarded an Exposure Music Award in 2012 for their live show and being invited to play at Hard Rock Hell for the 1st time.
2017 is looking even busier with a Planet Rock Roadstars tour alongside Broken Witt Rebels already announced and another major tour booked but still under wraps for the late spring. All in all things are looking very bright for these hard working guys. So if you're into live music at its finest with the vibes of Led Zep and Black Crowes check them out whenever they play in your town or city – you will not be disappointed.<>

Free At Last
Free at Last were formed in 1982 under the name Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam featured three of the current members, Jak (guitar/vocals), Shane (guitar) and Mick (drums) until Dave joined on bass in 1994.
Uncle Sam's set contained a few original songs plus covers by such classic acts as ZZ Top, Pat Travers and of course Free. All the guys in the band have always had a great passion for the music of Free, so in 1996 when deciding to create a tribute there was only one choice who it would be.
Since then they have gone from strength to strength headlining at Bill Flynn's Free Convention and playing many of the top venues around the country, universally agreed to be the best Free and Bad Company tribute around.
With the original Bad Company reforming to promote their Anthology 2cd set, Paul Rodgers releasing solo albums and joining Queen as their singer for a world tour, it only serves to prove sustained interest in what the band are trying to recreate.
So for a night of 70's style red hot blues influenced, soul stealing ROCK the choice must be FREE AT LAST!<>
