The Black Swan ‘XL’ 8pm
With my mate Baz depping on the Drum seat, xl will be providing your Friday Night Rockshow for anyone not at #Drownload
XL are a 5 piece classic Rock / Pop covers band from the midlands, comprising Vocals ,2 Guitars, Bass and Drums. We have been playing together for over 16 years, all accomplished musicians of many years of playing in other bands, we like nothing better than entertaining our audiences. Our music ranges from the fifties to the present, with the onus on playing popular tunes that people enjoy and dance to.
They perform a range of hits including Hotel California, Whiskey in the Jar, Sweet Home Alabama and particularly entertaining renditions of Hocus Pocus and Tiger Feet.XL features Ady Taylor, one of the finest vocalists in the band, who also plays the guitar in defiance of the stereotype that men can’t multi-task. John Kirton, who is the band’s acclaimed Bassist and Sound Engineer, also performs the role of DJ in the intervals between the band’s sets, often playing tunes of such eclectic diversity that even the other band members are left baffled (don’t worry: he takes requests). Previously mentioned Baz will be sitting in for Carl Harris. Rounding off the line-up is lead guitarist Simon Thatcher: look out for his infamous ‘ginger guitar’, with which he can only play two songs at the moment (fear not, his blue guitar features on plenty of others).
