Music fans wanting to see some up-and-coming indie bands should get their tickets now for Pilgrims Rock Concert next weekend.

Taking place at the Sam Newsom Music Centre, in South Street, on Saturday July 27, from 4-11pm, the event is expected delight music fans with seven hours of rock music.

Trouble With Tuesday, based in Peterborough, are the featured artists set to play from 9-11pm.

Organiser Tim Norman, an ex-Californian living in Boston, describes them as ‘an energetic trio’ that have gigged throughout the country.

Their track ‘Song Walk On Water’ has been played on countless local radio stations.

Havana Rocks, from Sheffield, are also set to play - with their own music described as ‘reminiscent of Queen, Motley Crew, AC/DC and Jimi Hendrix’.

Also on the bill is Lock up Laura - a five piece rock band from the East Midlands.

Their original material is full of American rock and hard cutting riffs. Songs are described as ‘melodic yet full of energy with powerful vocals and drum beats’.

Last but not least is Corinne Lucy - a Northampton singer/songwriter who writes melodic, intelligent pop music.

Mr Norman said: “Depending on the support for this year’s rock concert, this could be Boston’s next great tradition since the 60’s at the other place.

“So many have told me they wish Party In The Park would come back. Well, this is the beginning. I’m hoping every year gets bigger and better.”

The event is supporting LIVES First Responders and is open to over-18s only. The proprietors from the Duke of York will be selling wine and beer at the event.
