Sunday night, it was time for another Live@Five gig at Scunthorpe town centre pub, The Penny Bank. This week was a little different as it was a later start for a big tribute act, Mercury & May. This week was ticketed at £5, but I feel people really got their money’s worth.

This Bank Holiday Sunday there was a lot of live music going on across Scunthorpe. If you attended a gig and fancy writing a review then email it to email@example.com
The Penny Bank has been rocking it’s foundations a fair few times in the recent months but if you are a fan of classic tunes from that genre then last Bank Holiday Sunday it was the place to be.
The popular venue played host to a truly astounding 60s / 70s rock anthems set from The Tripdown Project. Far above your usual pub band, these guys play at a very professional level and had toes tapping and heads bopping from their first track onwards.
Their rousing set included tracks from such giants as Creme, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Bowie and even The Beatles and Elton John among many others. Real crowd pleasers which was easily reflected by the patrons getting to their feet – especially during their well loved rendition of “Twist and shout” and there was a bit of a hair storm to rival the 70s during their powerhouse finale with Black Sabbath’s “War pigs”.
These lads did their heroes proud, you only had to close your eyes to their riffs and you felt like you were in presence of the Clapton, Ronson, Townsend et all.
I very much hope they make a return visit – if they do, go see them – you will not be disappointed.
