Mid Life Crisis
Mid Life Crisis, Grassington’s infamous rock legends reveal their exciting new line-up and show, “The Crisis Continues” on Saturday 16 January from 7.30pm, at Grassington Town Hall. There will be music and dancing all night with support from top local DJ Graham Bower.
Many thought that once the rocking reverend Andy Crich had left the dales to tend his new flock down south that the band would not be able to continue, but nothing seems to hold them back.
After auditions to rival only X Factor the band decided that no one person could stand in his place and so two vocalists have been chosen to take the stage. Fish farmer and secret singer-songwriter from Hebden, Johnny Jowett will bring his very own unique brand of performance. And the second lead vocalist, known only as Sue, is by day a mild mannered school teacher but by night transforms into one hell of a rock chick. Having a female singer in the line-up allows Mid Life Crisis an even greater range of song choice than ever before, so be prepared to rock the night away to their new numbers.
No-one could have predicted the success the band have enjoyed since they first got together and over the last few years they have helped raise a phenomenal amount of money for local charities as well as providing a lot of fun. They have supported The Saw Doctors, Toyah Wilcox and The Orchestra at the Grassington Festival where they performed to crowds of almost a thousand.
With day jobs ranging from financial advisor to watercolour artist and no offence meant here, not in their first flush of youth, the band continues to surprise and engage audiences wherever they play. The comeback gig is definitely set to be a sure fire success and one not to be missed.
Tickets to this great night out are only £10 (including a pie and peas supper) and are on sale at The Craft Shop, Grassington or on the door. Numbers are limited so the organisers suggest buying in advance to avoid disappointment.
