Friday 15th  October      Pink Pumps 

The Origins...
The original Pumps were to be found gigging extensively round the pubs and clubs of the North West in the early 1980’s, usually as a three piece playing high energy new wave influenced rock music, more commonly known as Power Pop these days. They eventually fizzled out after a succession of guitarists failed to stick around…special mentions to Noel, Steve, Trev, Phil and Paul who all spanked their planks with us at some time.

The Here and Now...
And then original members Ken and Dave decided it was time to have some fun again and get the show back on the road. Recording sessions have taken place and a record company is making interesting noises. A new drummer and guitarist have been recruited and gigs have been booked. Yes, thirty years later its Pumpin’ time again!

Lunchtime Session                  Lazy River Jazz    

The band's name describes perfectly what is in store for Oktoberfest afternoon fans. Quintessentional traditional jazz with a light-hearted feel. A regular favourite at the festival over the years.
