Rock ‘n’ roll party to start John farewell

Rob George 31st Mar, 2017

AN EXCITING evening full of the iconic sounds of some of music’s best-loved artists will fill Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall in one of the final concerts from a Malvern promoter.

John Banner begins his farewell to the local music scene with a 75th birthday party to remember by bringing a rock and roll dance party extravaganza to the city.

The respected promoter is bringing down the curtain on his impresario career with two shows at the city venue.

His annual St George’s Day concert will take place at the end of the month but before then there is a night to remember with Steve Wicketts, The Pontiacs and Debbie Miles next Sunday (April 9).

With fire in his belly and Rock ‘n’ Roll in his soul, the moment Steve arrives on stage you will realise this is no ordinary artist.

With fingers moving faster than your eyes can see, Steve plays up to 16 notes a second in a spectacle which must be seen to be believed from this respected pianist and vocalist.

Hot on his heels will be The Pontiacs, led by lead singer and founder member Dave Roberts, who will offer the odd surprise or two as well as the timeless hits of the some of the icons of music.

Highly accomplished vocalist Debbie Miles will take to the stage as the evening’s guest artist.

After first coming to prominence at the age of just 15, Debbie has appeared with The Fortunes, the Ivy League, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds, the Rocking Berries and Brian Poole.

There will be a specific dance area on offer but those who want to sit back, relax and take in sounds from across the musical spectrum are also invited to come along.

Tickets for the show are £13.50 each and are available from the Huntingdon Hall Box Office on 01905 611427
