A TOP rock band are set to make Worksop go off with a bang tonight, Friday 20th May.
Gunslinger, fronted by ex-Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey, will play the Frog and Nightgown Pub on Carlton Road.
The gig - a huge coup for Worksop - has been organised by local biker John Paul Drinkall aka the Cowboy.
Being a big Hawkwind fan, John-Paul became friendly with bassist Alan after following them on tour.
Now they are playing a special birthday concert in his home town.
“They are doing a UK tour but are playing the Frog as a massive favour for my birthday,” he said.
“This is a big band to be playing Worksop, it is testament to Alan for being the good guy he is.”
Gunslinger will be supported by local band Ziyos, one of Worksop’s best up and coming bands.
The evening kicks off at about 7pm. Gunslinger are expected on stage around 9pm.
