Three-piece band Indigo is enjoying a new lease of life with a new face in the band.

And the trio will be showcasing what 2014 will bring with a ticket-only gig at Oscar’s Wine bar in the George Centre on New Year’s Eve.

Comprising guitarist/lead vocal David Hughes, bass player/vocalist Anne Thompson and drummer/vocalist Cameron Sunman, the band plays a mix of music from the 60s to the present day and make frequent appearances at many of Grantham’s music venues.

Anne, from Grantham, said: “We are delighted to have Cameron on board. David and I have seen him perform with other bands where he provided vocals and keyboard skills and we recognised what a talent he is. Then to find he also plays drums made him the ideal candidate when we needed a new drummer.”

David, from Newark, who joined the band last year, commented: “To have the additonal voice makes for richer backing vocals and it’s great we can now create three-part harmonies.”

Newcomer Cameron said he had seen Indigo play a few times before he joined.

“When I had the opportunity, I grabbed it with both hands. I’m still relatively new to drumming, but I’ve had extensive coaching, so taking over the role has been relatively straightforward and it’s great to add the third vocal.”

Tickets for the December 31st gig are available from Oscars and Cappuccinos.
