Retired and ready to rock

A rock band of retirees want to find a singer so they can get gigging.

The group comprises ex-MD Mark Craig (drums), ex-food industry consultant John Armstrong (bass), ex-GP Peter Holmes (keys and guitar) and ex-hairdresser Phil Cox (lead).

All that’s missing is a singer to get them out there, playing gigs and charity events.

Mark said: “We rehearse in our own studio once a week. Although we can all sing, none of us have a clear lead vocalist’s voice. We are looking for someone in similar circumstances to ourselves, an outgoing personality who wants a crack at doing something completely different!”

Peter Holmes added: “It’s a welcome change after 30 years with the NHS.

“We also find the social function it provides once a week is invaluable – it keeps us all off the streets!”

To give vocal duties a go, get in touch with Mark on 07984 350159 or email
