Tickets are now on sale for a gig that is set to bring the curtain down on this summer’s Blue Light Weekend in Withernsea.
The Blue Light Bands event at the Meridian Centre on Sunday, August 13, will be headlined by top punk/ska outfit the Zynx, with Bonemuel and Barefaced completing the line-up.
The Zynx have made their mark on the local music scene by supporting top bands such as the Beat, UK Subs, the Bandeleros and Badness, and their lively repertoire covers the likes of the Clash, the Jam, Specials, Madness and Bad Manners.
Bonemuel, formed nine years ago by veteran local musician Chris Morfitt and his two sons, thrive on their collaborations with fellow local musicians, and their set at the Meridian Centre will include some special guests.
For brand-new band Barefaced, this will be their first gig – but they include at least one familiar face – Kevin Lythe, a musician and sound engineer well known in the area for his associations with bands such as Schubert’s Apprentice, Afterglow, Cryin’ Shame, Dave is Bowie, Happy New Beer, Headrush and the Pub Lads.
The doors open at 6pm, with the entertainment beginning at 7pm. Admission is just £2.50, but the venue has limited capacity so people are urged to snap up tickets soon to avoid disappointment.
For this reason, the organisers are only issuing physical tickets, not online booking – and tickets will be available from the Gazette offiffice in Seaside Road, as well as the Meridian Centre, Withernsea Town Council, the Alexandra Hotel in Queen Street, and the Captain Williams pub on the north promenade.
