Two talented Ripley bands will be in action on Friday, April 10.

Thursday, 9th April 2015, 10:17 am

The Diamond at Sutton-in-Ashfield is to host Europe’s top Steel Panther tribute band.

Surreal Panther recently performed to a sell-out crowd at Leicester’s O2 Academy with the genuine article.

But what is special about this appearance in Sutton is that frontman Jamie Fowkes will be sharing the stage with his cousin, Bradley Smith, who is the singer of talented young rock band Parasight, and will be the support for the event.
