Local Hinckley band, 4th Avenue will be celebrating their 100th show which will take place at De Montfort College on the 30th of December.
This will mark one of the bands last events for the year of 2019. They have been booked to do the show by luxury car giant, Land Rover.
When Notizie asked 4th Avenue band member, Danny Morrison, about the milestone show, he said: “We’re all very proud of this amazing achievement and this band keeps going from strength-to-strength.”
4th Avenue will be performing their last concert of 2019 to a sold out crowd in Sapcote that will take place on New Year’s Eve.
In the new year, the band will be in the recording studio, where they will be recording a new studio album on the 19th of January. Fans of the group can give suggestions for the album title as suggestions are currently open.
Fans have been encouraged to leave suggestions for an album title on the official 4th Avenue Facebook fan page. This is where the band will look at all of the suggestions given to them online.
In February 2020, 4th Avenue will perform at the Concordia Theatre in Hinckley in what they describe as ‘one of their biggest shows’.
They will be supported by a full live band for the event and the compère for the evening will be Jay Hood, from the Isle of Sheppey.
When Notizie asked Danny about how the band had established a friendship with Jay Hood, he said: “Jay was already friends with 4th Avenue band member Tom Urch as Jay and Tom had worked at Pontins Holiday Parks together. This year, we’ve travelled down to the Isle of Sheppey six times to see Jay.”
As it is the Christmas season, Notizie asked Danny what it was like to perform at this year’s Leicester light switch-on He described performing at the event as ‘next-level’.
We asked Danny about his first Christmas that he had celebrated with the band last year and more specifically, the first Christmas light switch-on events that 4th Avenue performed at in Hinckley and Earl Shilton that year, and what it was like to do them shows.
He said: “Hinckley was an honour. It was amazing as it is our hometown. Performing in Earl Shilton was lovely as it is Percy’s hometown, so that meant a lot to him.”
