Roadhouse roll up to Tavern

THE annual return of top London blues/rock band Roadhouse is on the cards at The Hope Tavern this Sunday, March 18.

Having built a close relationship with the Tavern audience over the years, this has become a regular visit and always proves a popular event with this “big stage” band squeezing into the intimate surrounds of the Holton le Moor venue.

Roadhouse is one of the UK’s most established, big stage blues/rock acts - a collaboration between experienced musicians and a much younger, talented pool of female vocalists, notably Mandy G.

Roadhouse is generally regarded as generating some of the best original material in the UK, lead by acclaimed song writer, guitar player and singer, Gary Boner.

The band was formed in 1991 by Gary Boner, ably assisted throughout by the driving bass of Bill Hobley and the powerful drumming of Roger Hunt, and seizing on an eclectic mix of influences from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Creedence Clearwater Revival, the band has developed a sound all of its own.

The Sunday session starts later than usual - at 5pm - with entry £6 on the door.
