more

Event Details

Back in the post-Lizzy days, Laurence Archer wrote and performed with Phil Lynott. Grand Slam was cut short in it’s prime, leaving a hole in the fabric of rock music. Laurence has nurtured a long-term plan to rebuild the Grand Slam machine, and here it is, blue printed and ready to race.
This new band (Laurence along with compadres Mike Dyer, Benjy Reid and Rocky Newton), honours the traditions of rock and Laurence’s song writing dynasty, but also looks to the future – the classic tracks sit alongside a set of brand spanking new rock anthems that embody the same ethos of freedom, positivity and adrenalin that ran through Grand Slam in 1984.
With this pedigree, it is no surprise that this band is a live monster, ready and raring to ransack stages around the world.
New album Hit the Ground was released on Marshall Records
Joining GRAND SLAM are special guests Sons of Liberty the UK’s own hard southern rock band. A group of well-travelled musicians, largely based in Bristol, they released their latest album ?Aces & Eights’ to huge fan and critical acclaim alike. This saw them being playlisted on Planet Rock and featured in Classic Rock Magazine ?Tracks of The Week’, along with an overflowing deck of top tier reviews.
Drawn together by a shared love of the incredible music of the southern states of America and their desire to deal this out with their own whiskey smoked swagger, the boys have proved to be an energetic band that delivers an authentic, crowd pleasing and fresh performance. This has been shown in blistering performances with not only their own headline shows, but appearances at Winter Storm, HRH, Bully On Rocks, Planet Rock Winter’s End and more.
Sons of Liberty are Fred Hale and Andy Muse (Guitars), Mark Thomas (Bass) and Steve Byrne (Drums) with Rob Walker of ?Yesterday’s Gone’ stepping in on the microphone for 2022.

Support is from Swindon composer & songwriter Richard Wileman who is joined by Amy Fry on vocals, clarinet & saxophone. Richard releases gothic, cosmic, prog, folk, lounge songs, and instrumentals with his Karda Estra project and more recently on his solo albums.
