A HALLOWEEN dance featuring a triple bill of live rock ‘n’ roll will take place at Grantham College Refectory next Saturday (October 29).

Headlining will be newly re-formed five-piece combo The Antiques Rockshow. The local outfit features Pete Wallwork on keyboards, Norman Locking on drums, John Burnet on guitar and vocals, Robin Dickinson on bass guitar and vocals, and Clive on lead guitar. All five musicians have vast experience and have been members of locals bands such as the Pontiacs, the Kobalts, Popcorn and the Trellions.

Also on the bill and back by popular demand is female vocalist Kellie Leigh. Covering the likes of Patsy Cline and Connie Francis, Kellie is known for her country twang but can adapt easily to many styles of music, such as 1960s and rock ‘n’ roll.

The third act on the night will be Rob Duffy who began his singing career in the late 1960s with a band called the Children, who later became The Lovin and then The Nerve. He worked with several other bands during the 1970s and 1980s before finally going solo. His repertoire includes many hits from the 1960s, from Elvis Presley to Buddy Holly, rock ‘n’roll and a little country too.

Doors are open from 7pm until midnight and hot food will be available.

Proceeds from a raffle will go to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

Tickets priced at £10 are available from Artifacts (01476 591693), Noel Wallis (01476 572223), Denis Manton (01476 576404) and Malcolm Broughton (01476 579136).
