It’s the first time the band has played in Bakewell on their neverending tour.

Route 66 Thave played all the main r’n’b festivals and supported such bands as Nine Below Zero, Dr Feelgood, Wilko Johnson and Uriah Heep.

The band has been on the road for 22 years and in that time has done around 1,000 gigs and they show no sign of slowing up. Well known for their guitar riffing, harmonica honking blues driven sound, it is a gig not to be missed, as singer Ian said: ”Bakewell is a lovely town and we are really looking forward to playing there. The Castle is a regular live music venue in the town and so let’s hope the Bakewell people can come out in force and support the good work Dave Kennedy is doing.”
