Dronfield’s music scoop of the year happened when one of the UK’s best up-and-coming Indie bands hit the stage at JD’s Lounge in the town.

After opening sets from Sheffield’s Adelphi and Chesterfield’s Trash, the Bolton upon Dearne four-piece hit the stage to a sell-out crowd and the usual chants of “Sherlocks Army”.

In a hot and sweaty bar, the band opened up with Get Up, Time To Go and Last Night, before moving on to the last single Escapade.

Those who had not seen the band before were soon drawn into the music and performance from this band who seem to be constantly on the road – but it is now showing that the commitment and hard work are starting to pay off.

Recently, the band filmed a session at the BBC’s Maida Vale studio for Radio 6 and are now getting regular airplay on Radio 1. So watch this space as they develop.

Next up were tracks like Was It Really Worth It, Times Ticking Bye and You’ve Made A Mistake.

As the set wound to a close, there were band favourites like Live For The Moment, Blue before their new single Heart Of Gold, climaxing in the always excellent Chasing Shadows.

The place was rocking to the rafters literally, and in more ways than one the band raised the roof at JD’s.

The band are off around the UK on more dates before getting back to Sheffield on Saturday, December 19, at Plug, and there are a few tickets left, but you’ll need to snap them up fast or you’ll be sorry you missed out.
