Saturday 10th August

  • Midnight Hour 2017

    Midnight Hour

    • Time: 1:30pm
    • Info: The South Wales Argus said... "Midnight Hour are a four piece band playing well known songs from the 60's and 70's. I was told they were all well seasoned musicians with a wealth of experience playing the clubs and pubs of Cardiff and the South Wales Valleys. To be frank I was expecting the same old numbers being trotted out by unenthusiastic players like so many bands on the pub circuit, but right from the first number the singer grabs your attention with some wailing harmonica and gutsy vocals. Their set continues at pace with the band clearly enjoying every minute of playing live. No room for any bored musicians in this band. The lead guitarist, when he's given the nod by the dripping wet frontman can let rip on the fretboard with the best of them. This is no ordinary covers band, no, this is a covers band that you need to see."
