They've been voted the best blues band in the UK and consistently sell out venues across the UK and The Hamsters will be in Stratford for the biennial gig on 19 August.
Although the band are top blues exponents in their own right, they are known for their interpretation of Jimi Hendrix and ZZ Top - and that is what audiences will be getting at Cox's Yard!
|Slim from the Hamsters in action|
The band will be serving up a rare double-bill, with one set devoted to Hendrix and the other to the hirsute US rockers something they will only be doing a handful of times this year. But note, this is not a tribute. The band put their own brand of top musicianship and humour into their interpretation - so it really is something quite unique.
You can catch The Hamsters at Cox's Yard, Bridgefoot, Stratford on Saturday, 19 August. Tickets are £12, £10 in advance and be warned - you'll need to book early for this one! Call 01789 404 600 for more.
*Slim from The Hamsters will be speaking to Vic Minett ahead of the gig on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, between 1pm and 4pm on Sunday, 13 August.
