FOLLOWING a successful last music gig of the year at Oldham’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, local acoustic rock’n’roll group The Miners Band is looking forward to forthcoming gigs in Oldham, Manchester and London.
The Miners Band, whose line up comprises local singer/songwriter Lee James Cluskey, from Chadderton, on vocals and guitars, keyboardist Richard Ellis Hawley while Luke Webster plays drums, will return to Oldham in the spring.
Their next gig, yet to be confirmed, looks likely to be in April or May with Tokyo’s the likely venue.
Further afield, the group also have gigs at Manchester Club Academy and The Ritz in Manchester to be announced with The 100 Club in London hosting the band, which practises at Sure Fire Studios, Royton, and Wharf Mill, Dobcross, later in 2020.
If their last gig of 2019 ‘Another Room’ is anything to go by then the band will not disappoint. It took place on Saturday, December 21 at the QEH with support act Luke Jones opening the night.
Further support was provided by Jukebox John, The Rancid Green Duo and Lee O’Shaunessey before The Miners Band performed a set of rock’n’roll classics.
The crowd spent the rest of the night enjoying the 12-song set by The Miners Band including a mixture of ballads and fast tempo numbers beginning with their song ‘Mancunian Jesus’.
Featuring, crowd favourites such as: ‘You Can Find The Time’, ‘In The Heavens’, ‘Unlike Some’, ‘You’ll Live and Learn’ and the last song of the night ‘Rock’N’Roll Soldier’.
The event has hopefully paved the way for The Miners Band, local musicians and musical performers from Oldham’s Unassuming Heroes to play to full houses right throughout the UK and beyond.
