Being asked back to Support Status Quo on tour again this year, and having previously supported The Darkness & Black Stone Cherry, Walkway’s distinct vocals, jaw dropping solos and solid rhythm section have created a huge buzz and gained the band the reputation as one of the UK’s best unsigned and potential breakthrough rock bands.

Syntronix are one of the UK's longest running 80's Tribute band and were formed in 2006 in Swindon to perform the music that was around in the 1980's but in particular the synthesizer music that became the sound that defined the early 80's. Who can forget 'Just Can't Get Enough' by Depeche Mode, 'In Cars' by Gary Numan and 'The Model' by Kraftwerk. Depeche Mode, OMD, Ultravox, Gary Numan, Visage, Human League, Kraftwerk..... the list goes on. The greatest synth based bands of the 80's faithfully reproduced by top musicians and programmers, then delivered with top vocals. Using some of the best synthesizers available (Kurzweil PC3 & K Series, Roland XV) and programming that's so good, you'll struggle to tell the difference between Syntronix and the real thing! Tickets are available at LIL'S Bar & Grill and Rapture
