Summer of Gigs for Skin Alumni

Skin fans will have a chance to catch both Nev and Myke out on the road this summer.

First up we have Nev with his band Hand of Dimes supporting Brit-rock stalwarts Thunder at Caerphilly Castle on July 14.  Next the band are playing Stoke at Eleven on 11th August. Finally they are appearing alongside Skid Row and The Quireboys at the Stonedeaf Festival on 25th August at Newark Showground. Tickets still available for the latter, but unfortunately Thunder have long since sold out.

The Myke Gray band is also hitting the festivals with an appearance at this year’s Steelhouse Festival which is being headlined by Glenn Hughes and Myles Kennedy.  Tickets are still available for that one. Then he’s supporting Black Star Riders at the Southampton Engine rooms on November 29th and in Leamington Spa the following day. Head over to Myke’s site for more info.
