Before we know it Autumn will be upon us, and so will this Rock Show......
Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Whitby Rocks will be taking place at Whitby Pavilion on Friday 11th October 2019
Built in 1878, Whitby Pavilion nestles in the West Cliff and has wonderful views over the North Sea and the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey that was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. The theatre is well equipped with up-to-date sound and lighting facilities yet retains the wonderful atmosphere of its Victorian origins. Renowned artists from all over the world have and continue to perform here and as this is our first rock show in Whitby, we have marked the occasion with three red-hot rock bands led by legendary musicians......Zal Cleminson's sin'dogs - Ken Pustelnik's Groundhogs - Stray
Zal Cleminson is widely respected for his work with The Sensational Alex Harvey Band providing incendiary guitar and writing on seminal albums such as Next, Framed, The Impossible Dream, and others. Zal also played guitar in Nazareth for several years in the late 70s, early 80s, and worked as a session musician touring with Elkie Brooks, Bonnie Tyler, and Midge Ure. Many respected guitarists have cited Zal as an influence.
Way back in the halcyon days of rock, there came a trio of 'superheroes' known as the Groundhogs. Now Ken Pustelnik brings you a new and exciting line-up of the Groundhogs, playing that classic material with verve and power, and giving performances of energy and excitement that are as fresh and relevant to the modern audience as the originals were back in the day...

Originally formed by four school friends back in 1966, by 1970 Stray had released their first album simply titled “Stray” and were a hugely popular act on the club scene in the UK and Europe. They are still one of the hardest gigging and excellent live acts on the circuit. With founder member Del Bromham on guitar and vocals, the band will play a selection of songs, which they have recorded over the years.

The influence that each of these musicians has had on music across the globe is simply immense and having all three on the same bill is just epic. To can get a feel for what's in store for the audience, you can have a look and listen to Zal Cleminson's sin'dogs performing “Isobel Goudie” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLxojOiatQQ, Ken Pustelnik's Groundhogs playing “Split 1” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXBxauiZ1M8ti, and a reunion of the original line up of Stray in 2016 playing “Cold Turkey” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np5gWzxfVuM

No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone's taste!
