After a little over a year with The Lightning, Gary decided to leave us at the end of 2015 to rejoin his former band. So it's farewell and our best wishes for him, and welcome to our new drummer, Dave Robins, who we hope will be with us for a good while yet.

The Lightning is an energetic 4 piece band from the British Midlands whose members have a real love of life and the music they play. Influenced by the great rock classics of their youth, their love of this music continues and is reflected in their performances, playing music from a wide variety of musical genres from the last 50 years.

You were bloody brilliant all of you, thank you for entertaining us, we will definitely be having you back xxx

Tracey (landlady)

The Lightning are four very experienced musicians who know that terrific performances are created from the energy and commitment to play great music, along with an abundant dose of fun and entertainment, all backed up with a professional approach.

Just a quick message to say thank you for such a great night last Saturday in the Boot in Tamworth.

Both my friend and I had a great night, we had planned to move between pubs but we enjoyed it so much we stayed all night long.

Massive thank you to The Lightning. Great night! Had great feedback from the regulars about how much they enjoyed The Lightning's show too.

Brett Hall (agent & DJ)

The Lightning play an extensive range of favourite rock and power pop songs, both classic and modern, for their popular gigs, but the talent of this foursome doesn't stop at playing covers; they also have an increasing portfolio of original songs which have been enthusiastically received.

The Lightning also has a more serious side, helping many charitable causes. They have gigged in Germany for a number of years raising money for Multiple Sclerosis causes, and here in the UK have played fund-raising gigs for the MS Society and many other good causes close to the bands member's hearts, like NABD, The Jan Foundation, and Help for Heroes.
