The Contenders - one of Lewes' best known bands - we love 'em. This tight four-piece combo don't so much as play the blues as ooze it (booze it? - ed), with loud and proud vocals/lead, bass, drums and rhythm/harmonica being delivered with the seemingly effortless confidence that only the truly gifted can pull off. The Contenders feature Mick Hawksworth (ex-Koils) on Drums, John Collins (ex-Bad News) on Bass Guitar, Pete Messer (ex-Parrots & Crown Deads of Europe) on Slide Guitar, Harmonica & Vocals and Steve Williams (ex-Boho) on Guitar & Vocals.
And The Koils, what can you say? They're back again in their original lineup - Mick Hawksworth on Drums and Jim Healey on Guitar and Vocals, together with Fran Galpin (ex-Elevators) on Bass Guitar and Vocals. Don't miss 'em.
There'll also be a few surprise guests - watch out!
Bar from 4:30pm, first band on about 8:30pm
