Rising stars These Wicked Rivers are to perform at The Manor in Ilkeston on Friday, October 9, from 8.30pm.

One of the most creative and dynamic blues-rock band to emerge from the East Midlands in many years, the group will aiming to put on a great night for music fans to enjoy.

From Derby, the band comprises John Hartwell (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Arran Day (lead guitar and backing vocals), Jon Hallam (bass) and Dan Southall (drums).

Collectively influenced by the likes of Rival Sons, Joe Bonamassa, Marcus Bonfanti, Black Stone Cherry and Royal Blood, These Wicked Rivers love writing huge sounding riffs and combining them with epic guitar solos.

Fusing the classic rock sounds of Cream with modern blues riffs, they have rapidly developed a cult following in the East Midlands and with their solid collection of self -composed material, marrying old-school musicianship with a youthful intensity.

Since the release of their debut EP six weeks ago, The Enemy has been featured on the airwaves/online throughout the UK.

The Manor Health and Racquets Club is located on Manners Road, Ilkeston.

Advance tickets are £5 or £7.50 on the door (this includes one drink) and can be purchased/collected from the club, reserved over the telephone on 0115 930 5027 or bought on the night.
