FOLLOWING the EMU announcement of the re-booking the Jam'd from the cancelled St Nicks Festival to play at Rasputins on November 21, there is more good news.
Jilted generation, the UK's number one Prodigy tribute, has also been booked for a Christmas Party Special on Friday, December 19. No luck though with High Voltage; the singer has gone walkabout. So if you think you can sing like Bon Scott just let EMU know and you will be put in touch with the band.
“It is good to get these bands booked back,” said EMU spokesman Chris Anson. “
Offers have come flooding in from top tribute acts wishing to play in the town since the summer festivals.
Chris added: “EMU will be booking one or two more top tributes to play in the town before Christmas.”
