Gig: Secure Unit – The Golden Lion Hotel, Maryport – Sun 19th Feb 2012
Posted on: Wednesday, Feb 15, 2012
Although the band was only formed in late 2011, the four members all have long track records. Frontman Steve Whetton has been singing and playing piano/organ for over 25 years in bands such as The King’s Road and 24:seven. A keen songwriter, he has had songs published in the UK and the US. Lead guitarist Dean Newton started playing at a very early age, has recently graduated from the London College of Music, and is well known to many Cumbrian music fans as the guitarist in AWOL, which he formed in 2002. Bass player Gerry Millar has toured nationally with the Marratimes, and has spent the last three years in rock outfit Tabula Raza, playing all over Cumbria. Finally, legendary drummer Frank Hall needs no introduction, but is probably most famous for his work with Necromandus, who played with Black Sabbath in the 1970s. Frank also played with Ozzy Osbourne in Blizzard of Ozz.
