The Rainband Return to The Lord Combermere
7th May @ 9:00pm
The Rainband are a five-piece indie rock band from Manchester, England founded in 2010 by lead singer Martin Finnigan and guitarist Phil Rainey — who made his name with Peter Hook's cult combo Monaco (band). Finnigan and Rainey were joined by drummer Steve Irlam and bassist Paul Daggatt later that year. In 2012 Paul Daggatt left and was replaced by Joe Wilson, who then moved onto guitar while his brother Sam Wilson took on bass.
To this day The Rainband have released three original studio EP's ('The Prodigal EP', 'Fire EP' and 'Sirens EP') and several singles. Their single 'Rise Again', a tribute to legendary MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli, entered the UK Independent Charts at No.9 and remained in the Virgin Radio Italian charts during fourteen weeks, peaking at No.5.
The last performance from these guys was legendary, and the pub will no doubt be packed as a result. We strong recommend you come early and bag a seat!
