IDENTITY Crisis will be just one of the many acts performing at G in the Park on Sunday, September 18.

If you want to find out what they offer you can pop along to Eden on Sunday night when they will be supported by singer songwriter Kirsty Scarlett.

Mark Hickman, who plays acoustic rhythm guitar and vocals in the band, describes the duo as an electro-acoustic covers band.

He said: “We also do some of our own songs and we use a whole array of instruments.”

The other band member Matt ‘Tango’ Ellerby collects instruments and he plays everything from an electric violin to a Charango - go along to find out what that is1

Mark said: “Often people react with curiousity, particularly to the Charango because very few people have seen one before.”

The duo also play music from a range of decades from the 50s to present day.

Mark added: “We’re very much looking forward to playing G in the Park because plenty of bands are playing so it will give us the opportunity to hear other bands from the area and see what a varied mix of music that we can produce on the day.”

l Bingham band The Mondays will also be taking to the stage at Dysart Park for the Journal gig.

The band, which formed three years ago, started out as an Oasis cover band and have progressed into offering a wide range of rock and roll covers as well as their own songs. New band member Alex Rickells said: “We are just all good friends and we have a similar passion for music.”

The band comprises Alex, Andrew Hemmings, Yusuf Zerdazi, Devon Adams, and Scott Rice.

Andrew said: “We do a bit of all sorts - older stuff like the Rolling Stones and then more modern stuff like The Libertines.

“We are looking forward to the opportunity to play at G in the Park. We’ve done a couple of outdoor gigs before.”

The lads, who are all 16 and 17-year-olds from Toothill College in Bingham, do not know if they want to make the band their career but they are all having fun.

Andrew added: “As long as we’re still enjoying it it doesn’t matter where it goes.”
