AN up-and-coming Uttoxeter band which is continuing to make a big splash on the town music scene is set to take to the stage at a popular pub.

Rockers Anonymous have fast become one of the tightest live bands in and around the town and those who have not had the chance to check them out yet or want to see them again are being given the opportunity to do so on Saturday, May 3 at The Old Star, in Queen Street.

The band features members who attend Thomas Alleyne’s High School in Uttoxeter — Hayden Kirk, Robert Baynes and — while drummer Steven ‘Herbie’ Herbert studied the music technology course while at Burton and South Derbyshire College.

Manager Andy Hartshourne told the Post and Times that the band has continued to grow since first breaking onto the town’s music scene.

He said: “They started up a few years ago and have done really well. They’ve learned very quickly and pick up songs fast.

“The main difference between them and other teenage, school bands is the fact that they are entertaining — they put on a show and don’t just stand there and play.

“They play a lot of rock material from the likes of AC/DC, Metallica, Green Day, Foo Fighters and Velvet Revolver, right up to more contemporary stuff like Paramore and Alter Bridge.

“They also write their own material, which is really exciting stuff.”

Anonymous have played Bradley House and are now becoming regulars at the Old Star.

Hartshourne revealed the band have spread their wings further afield recently.

He said: “They’ve had two gigs at bike rallies, one in Rocester for the Uxonians Club and one in Alfreton.

“They’ve also played with the Vice Bishops at their Meet on the Ridge event at the Doveridge Village Club.”

The gig at the Old Star gets under way at 9pm and entry is free.
