Party in the Park
A Few Good Men
The ultimate covers band, our headliners are a highly accomplished four-piece band consisting two lead guitarists, a bass guitarist and drummer, all good singers which allows them to recreate wide range of lead vocals and harmonies from hits across the decades from the 60s through to the current day. At the moment we’re expecting the boys to take to the stage at around about 7:15pm (subject to change).
See them in this YouTube video performing a live-medley in Blackpool, including hits from Duran Duran, Stereophonics and Queen:
Dino Baptiste is a high-energy musician and regular performer at the iconic Jam House in Birmingham city centre. Dino brings a mixture of blues, boogie-woogie and rock and roll to life with his lively keyboards and vocals. Dino will be performing as a duo, keyboards, vocals and drummer. At the time of writing we’re expecting Dino to take to the stage at around 6pm (subject to change).
