The Hamsters strike a pose
Top rock and blues band, The Hamsters

Hamsters do Hendrix at Cox's Yard

One of the UK's premier blues bands, The Hamsters, return to Cox's Yard this month for a special double set featuring Jimi Hendrix and ZZ Top. If you're a fan of the rodents, you'll know what we mean!

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!

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.
