Manchester band The Plimp Souls have had to pull out of a showcase event at Alexander's in Chester on Saturday, April 30 after their lead singer was involved in an accident.

Singer Leanne Ledger is suffering whiplash following the accident so the band will be unable to perform on Saturday night.

However, Alexander's is going ahead with the event which will still feature Chester band The Daymons.

Since their formation in 2012 the Daymons have been blending guitars, harmonising voices and scintillating trumpet lines.

Their songwriting takes influences from the very best of the past five decades of music, with definite nods to the 60s and 90s, spinning them into something fresh and new.

Their songs have an indie sensibility but no fear of a danceable groove and a big, catchy chorus. The band’s exuberant live shows are a celebration and not to be missed.

The evening will start with a set from Micky Greatbatch.

The evening gets under way at 8pm. Tickets are £4. Call 01244 401402 or visit www.alexanderslive.com.

Alexander's say they are hoping to reschedule the Plimp Souls gig for some time during the summer.
