Fronted by experienced frontman guitarist and vocalist Wayne Carrick, this will be the band’s fourth appearance at Dead’uns.

They have performed regularly at festivals and venues throughout the North West and have earned a great reputation for putting on a terrific show.

The Wayne Carrick Band was formed more than 20 years ago and has seen only a few personnel changes over the years.

The band was contracted to the Blues Matters record label in the early 2000s.

The band perform a range of classic covers in the blues/rock genre with several Eric Clapton covers prominent in the set list.

Friday’s audience can look forward to hearing covers of I Shot the Sheriff, Wonderful Tonight, Badge, Knockin on Heaven’s Door and the BB King classic The Thrill is Gone.

In addition to frontman Wayne Carrick, other band members include young talent Kirk Dalton on lead guitar, Phil Escott on the drums and bassist Dave Linley.

Admission to the gig is free and the music starts at 9.30pm.

Looking ahead the club have rebooked the Brian Rawson Band – a Glasgow based contemporary blues band – for their June promotion.
