Welcome on board buddy !!
First up was Hollowpoint, a rock and metal band from Cheshire who supply a great mix of original tracks and classic covers, made up of Andy Cotton from Renegade, Stu Gower and Tim Hopkins from Gearjammer, Fozzy from Snakebite, and Nige Connor on vocals. I was really impressed with their sound straight away; it was very full and the vocal range of Nige was extremely impressive. They had the audience’s full attention and reeled off a host of originals and great covers at a roaring pace. Their vocal harmonies, intricate guitar work and chunky bass really filled the space and they were very upbeat and full of fun – exactly what was needed to warm all the punters up on this chilly evening. For me, their best covers where Saxon’s ‘Stand Up And Fight’, and Maiden’s ‘Hallowed Be Thy Name’ – amazing vocals on both and great twin guitar work in ‘Hallowed’. A really top way to start the evening.
Hollowpoint are pleased to announce we are gonna be supporting Graham Bonnet on Friday 24th August 2018 the Tivoli Venue
Graham Bonnet Band – Friday 24th August 2018
We are pleased to announce the return of legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet and the Graham Bonnet Band for the second consecutive year.
As a successful solo artist and frontman for such acts as Rainbow, Alcatrazz, Impellitteri and the Michael Schenker Group, Graham Bonnet has worked with some of the greatest names in rock including Ritchie Blackmore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Michael Schenker, Slash, Bruce Kulick, Vivian Campbell, Cozy Powell and Jon Lord.
Performing a mix of hits including ‘Since You Been Gone’, ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Night Games’ along with all the key tracks from Graham’s illustrious career and his new material, the Graham Bonnet Band pays homage to a legacy of rock spanning almost half a century that is still going strong.
The band now also features keyboardist and Alcatrazz founding member Jimmy Waldo alongside Graham, guitarist Conrado Pesinato and bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone and drummer Mark Benquechea.
This is the last night of the band’s UK Tour, so it’s bound to be a roof-raiser!
