    It's the Friday Session Introducing... Dr Mojito.

    The Ross-on-Wye four-piece formed in May 2009 from the ashes of the bands Tiltstation and Solar Plexus.

    They describe their beginnings: "One day Martin and Liam were having a jam in Martin's room and his bass drum exploded, out of it came a funky yellow ball of goo - it told us we need more members to truly bring the funk alive. We did what he said and four months later Dr Mojito was born."

    Introducing... VinceFest

    We're previewing Vince-Fest, which takes place at Worcester's Bell Inn tomorrow night (Saturday 1 May), in memory of Vince Jackson.

    His son, Chad, has organised this charity gig as a way of thanking St Richard's Hospice for the way they looked after his dad during his fight with cancer.

    Since Vince passed away in September, Chad says they've provided incredible support to him and his family - and hopes this gig will raise money and awareness for this local charity.
