A New Year’s Eve gig and disco aims to keep revellers on their feet most of the night – dancing to music that will span four decades.
The party night at Chameleon Music Bar is being run in conjunction with Easy Beat Club’s mod and soul event organisers and will feature two live bands and three DJs.
First act on will be popular 1950s rock ’n’ roll and rockabilly trio The Hicksville Bombers. Led by Lincoln’s Dave Brown on lead guitar and vocals, he is backed by former Jack Rabbit Slim double bass man Landon Filer and the experienced Tony Roath on drums.
The mood will change as the new year kicks in with a rare appearance from the night’s headline act – Grantham’s own nine-piece outfit Ska’d 4 Life – who will pump out a blend of early ska and Two Tone tunes.
Formed in 1998, the band comprises Nicholas Jackson-Wynch, Kate Jackson-Wynch, Dave Ward, Russ Vaughan, Alan Bontoft, Jack Swift, Ben Loomes, James Travis and Dan.
On the decks throughout the evening will be Martin, Joel and Robin, spinning everything from 1950s rock ’n’ roll through to 1960s beat, northern soul and ska, along with new wave and anthemic classics from the 1970s and 80s, to satisfy most tastes.
Food will be served during the night and is included in the ticket price.
~ Limited tickets priced at £20 per person are still available in advance solely from Chameleon Music Bar in Grantham’s High Street. No admission on the door, strictly ticket in advance only.
