The Voodoo Hogs hail from the county of Cheshire and have been together performing all over the North West circuit for the better part of two years. They have an extensive repertoire of classic blues/rock covers for your entertainment and are booked for many gigs this year.

Graham Hetherington on lead vocals delivers his songs in his gruff voice style and looking sharp as the bands frontman. Gary Diack on lead guitar was spot on with his guitar work a top musician, the rhythm section with Phil Marsland on bass guitar and Gary Burgess keeping time, an over-all excellent display. The first set kicked off with Killing Floor, White Room, Sharp Dressed Man and Hoochie Coochie Man and a tribute to the late B B King with his song The Thrill Has Gone, plus many more classics, the room was bouncing.

The second set went into overdrive with Purple Haze, Foxy Lady, Boom Boom, Tore Down and a mix of rock and roll for an encore, just all good rocking stuff. The crowd loved it, the band enjoyed it and the dancers danced, another cracking night supporting live music, tremendous.
