The band nailed every song.They were truly excellent.All the classics played along with some surprises.2 and a half hour show for £12 is hard to beat. The best tribute band around who do justice to the songs.

It's a refreshing change for Wigan but I don't think it's well advertised. The drinks are pricey too and I think they should have more seats in the main concert area.
