STRAIGHTEN OUT! - A Tribute To The Stranglers on Saturday 19th May 2018
Straighten Out are coming to The Old Courts! Bringing you the dynamism and character of The Stranglers, this band have it all.
Support on the night is provided by The Stonebirds. Expect powerful vocals coupled with a 'play it like you mean it' attitude from this relatively new Wigan band, who'll be performing a slightly stripped back set.
Straighten Out are the premier Stranglers tribute band out there...with an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours as they re-create the 'early years' sound of The Stranglers, complete with a keyboard rig that is the same model as the original used by Mr. Greenfield himself in the 1970's..!
The growling bass sound and the quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard, as is the dual vocal 'attack' from the two frontmen a la Burnel-Cornwell as they rip through all the classics: 'Peaches', 'Hanging Around', 'No More Heroes', '5 Minutes', 'The Raven', 'Walk On By', 'Straighten Out', 'Down In The Sewer' and many more as they cover virtually the whole of the first three Stranglers' albums and beyond...Straighten Out - live and unleashed - will take you on a nostalgia trip that transports you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest tunes ever written...Straighten Out will put you back in that place...
Over 14's with an adult
