Al's Fest @ John Peel Centre

Al’s Fest is a Memorial Music Festival in memory of Alan James.

Al’s passion for living life to the full involved Music and Bikes!! He was a keen guitarist in Ratzinasack and was most remembered for his role as singer and guitarist in Snake Oil!

So what better way to pay tribute to Al than to get his favourite two local bands up on stage to play the night away, plus the reunion of Snake Oil (for one night only)!

The remaining members of Snake Oil will be performing the songs of the past in their Rock, Roll and Rockabilly style, with guest performers! Covering classics by Joe Walsh, Steve Earle, Jimi Hendrix, Creadence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynyrd and loads more!!

Snake Oil will be supported by:
Mind The Gap – a local hard working Rock covers Band, covering songs by Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and so many more in their own fun and energetic performance!

Ratzinasack – a local hard working Rock Covers Band, covering AC/DC, Cranberries, Status Quo and loads more in their unique style!

This will be a night not to be missed if you like Live Music, Beer and Bikes!!
