A BAND from Great Sutton are hoping an appearance at Chester Rocks will be the springboard to success.
By day, the four members of The Fallows are plumbers, carpet fitters and bank workers.
But on Sunday, July 3, they will take to the Dawsons Unsigned stage in the Pavillion at Chester Racecourse for their biggest gig to date.
Together for little more than a year, the band have already supported Detroit Social Club in Liverpool and played a string of dates after being snapped up by promoters all over the North West.
Singer Gavin, 30, works for Lloyds bank in Chester with bassist Stu Williams, 29.
Drummer Martin Lee. 28, is a plumber and the band’s 30-year-old lead guitarist Mike Mullard’s day job is a carpet fitter.
The Fallows, who cite their main influences as the indie bands of the 90s, were one of 300 bands who applied to take part in Chester Rocks and were chosen after their debut single impressed organisers.
Gavin said: “We sent off the single we released on iTunes in April with a B-side to Chester Racecourse
“It all started because last summer, when we did our first gig, at Oxjam in Hoylake, we got asked to do a gig in LIverpool. We’ve been asked to do another gig at every one we’ve done.”
The Fallows held a single launch in April, when they released a song on iTunes.
The Dawsons Unsigned stage will be headlined by Ellesmere Port’s Ian Prowse and his band Amsterdam.
Gavin added: “I’m hoping we’re not on at the same time as Feeder because I want to see them.
“Hopefully this is going to be the start of bigger and better things. We’ve never played Ellesmere Port so we are arranging a gig in Ellesmere Port at the end of September.”
