CAROL NASH MAIN STAGE
Early Slot 7.30-9.30pm

Expect quirky eclectic rock opera of sorts entwined with some rather lovely albeit reluctant covers.
3 men in bowler hats,whats not to like?
Late Slot 10-11.55pm
Nigel “Piano Man” Williams brings a feisty set of classic covers form
the likes of Dire Straits to self penned originals to the best Beatles tributes
you’re likely to hear.Soloman Williams joins on guitar along with Phil Groves
at the drum kit and Andy “Marshy” Marshall on bass,vocals and sometime trumpet.
The COLAS BEACH STAGE hosts another local band
Fugue State are: Phil Cleary on bass, Brian Duffy on Drums,
Kriss Lane on guitar and Paul Nicholson on guitar & vocals.
4 rock fans that have played in various bands on the island
they got together in 2015 to put together a setlist of classic rock,
metal and a bit of punk thrown in too. They made their live debut at
last year’s TT at the Manx Charity Aid all day gig at Bushy’s Beer tent
and were hoping to play there again the following night, but the storms put
paid to that one, so it’s 2nd time lucky in 2016!
The setlist ranges from The Undertones to Slayer going via Kiss, Iron Maiden and MC5 so expect a varied mix of classics with a couple of surprises thrown to keep you on your toes. ©VanninPhotos
