An amazing tribute band imitating one of the most iconic bands in the history of British music are set to pack out a village hall near Uttoxeter.
On Saturday, June 9, The Jam'd will become the latest top tribute act to perform at Marchington Village Hall.
Following in the footsteps of bands include Johnny Cash covers band Keep it Cash and Pink Floyd imitators Dark Side of the Wall, the Jam tribute act is set to delight fans of the Mod revivalists.
A statement from the band's management reads: "Widely regarded now as the UK’s most authentic and leading tribute to The Jam, The Jam’d are totally committed to giving an unforgettable, authentic performance with all the energy, passion and style of the "Woking Three".
"As full-time touring professional musicians, and massive Jam fans themselves, the band don’t 'try to be' or 'pretend to be' The Jam, but rather put on a performance from the heart and soul, drawing on all their memories, experiences and love of what was the country’s biggest band in their day.
"Gigging up and down the UK at outdoor festivals, scooter rallies and some of the UK’s top tribute venues and events.
"The show also includes the only replica of Rick Bucklers 'great white' drum kit and features the band's own brass section.
"Every effort is placed into reproducing the sound, arrangements and energy of a Jam gig.
"Those who saw The Jam live will remember the electricity, aggression, passion, and even fashion on stage, something not always prevalent in today’s world, but to The Jam’d, it is a passion, a mission, and an honour to play for fans of the best band in the world."
Supporting the band will be a popular Uttoxeter act heavily influenced by The Jam themselves - The Shelter.
The four-piece indie band, fronted by singer-songwriter Julian Parker, have lots of tunes that take inspiration from the new wave music of the late 1970s and early 80s.
Many of their songs are about life in Uttoxeter, where Parker grew up.
Tickets for the gig are available by calling promoter Paul Needham, who is landlord of music pub the Dog and Partridge, in Church Lane, Marchington, on 01283 820394.
