Animals and Feelgood to headline Mantonfest
The Animals and Friends and Dr Feelgood have been unveiled as the headliners of this year’s Mantonfest.
Sixties blues band The Animals are best known for their worldwide hits House of the Rising Sun and We Gotta Get Out of this Place.
The current line-up includes original drummer John Steel and keyboard player Mick Gallagher, who replaced Alan Price in 1965, along with Danny Handley and Roberto Ruiz.
Rhythm and blues favourites Dr Feelgood have been touring since 1971 with a rotating lineup – none of the original members of the band are still performing.
Nonetheless, fans can expect hits including Roxette, Back in the Night and their 1979 top ten singleMilk and Alcohol to be rolled out.
The line-up also includes festival favourites Straight Six, Skedaddle and The Banned alongside Barrel House, The Clive Collective, Onyx, The Harry Miller band, and nine-piece ukulele band The Ukey D’Ukes.
Mantonfest takes place on Saturday, June 25 at Manton Grange Watermeadow. For more information, or to book a ticket, log on to www.mantonfest.co.uk
