April Moon

April Moon,

First played at RTL in 2019 and went down a storm with Jason even being invited to join Fleetwood Bac for a track later in the evening.

Originally from Canada but these days they live in the UK for 6-7 months of each year. Their live show consists of fun, upbeat covers from favourite artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Bowie, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Police, the Kinks, Pink Floyd, the Who and Queen. They do two different types of shows to be able to perfectly suit any venue size, audience type, style and budget! They play either as: 

- a duo with two vocals, two guitars, and a rockin' kick drum pedal!

- a full 4-piece band with Tino on bass and Mike on drums.

BoneShaker

BoneShaker

Having played at several previous Rock The Lakes events Boneshaker are an extremely popular addition every time apart from the backstage crew who hate lifting the Hammond on stage….

'BONESHAKER' Are ROCKIN'!!..........Born Out Of The Ashes Of Previous Band (Mainline) Bone$hakeR are a five piece band based in and around the Southport area. They play a wide variety of Classic Rock songs from the 60’s to the present, and everything in between.  

Bone$hakeR formed in late 2008 and have played North West venues with encouraging success and built up a loyal following.

Their use of Hammond organ and 4 part harmonies is what sets this band apart from others of similar genre.

2PM

Mexican Dogs

Mexican Dogs

MEXICAN DOGS return with latest single: “She Cries Blues”, a retro romp out now via Fretsore Records.
Cavorting their way through a thunderous blend of retro riffs, jovial drum beats and rip-roaring, live-ready vocals, “She Cries Blues” is a fuzzy glam-rock romp that touches on the past whilst barrelling hell for leather toward the future.
After gaining a massive reception on live outings late last year, the track is another assured step forwards for a band keen to connect with audiences whilst staying true to their own jam-packed arsenal of influences. Wanting to build upon the glam 70s stylings that underpinned earlier release “Run, Run, Run,” frontman Gaz Wilcox explains of “She Cries Blues”‘s inception:
“This song is something that’s been with me for a while. It definitely means a lot to us because it’s always the simplest of melodies and chord progressions that are the hardest ones to find. The songwriting process was really fast — I wrote it in about 10 minutes. I find that in those moments when a song just finds you, it normally just sticks. WIthout overthinking it too much it becomes more natural and flows without overcomplicating things.”
Produced once more by Andy Fernihough and recorded at Liverpool’s 3rd Planet Studios, “She Cries Blues” is a rollicking, vintage-tinged track with a “big and bouncy” mix that yearns to be blasted from the speakers on a windswept, roof-down drive down a desolate desert highway.

4PM

Fag Ash Lil

Fag Ash Lil

Still and always will be the ONLY band to have played at every single Rock the lakes. No mean feat.
Maybe they should write a song about it.

Classic rock influences their music with a fusion of acoustic and electric guitar and powerful, tight vocals and harmonies from singers, Babs and Deb. Backed up by driving bass and drums. Too many influences to quote and they play a variety of styles all under the "rock umbrella".

6PM

DeePurple UK

DeePurple UK

Formed in Liverpool in Spring 2005. This band needed to happen! Not only does Gary possess a passing resemblance to the man Gillan himself his amazing vocal acrobatics certainly brings the Gillan stage persona thundering to life! Gary has been performing classic rock around venues both at home and internationally for many years and his experience as a very accomplished frontman shines through. Ian Bamford's virtuosity on guitar superbly compliments that of Speed King Ritchie Blackmore. Ian's faithful reproduction of Mr. Blackmore's twiddly bits is indeed a marvel to behold. Like Gary Ian has been performing in local bands for years and toured Europe extensively with Frank Zappa tribute The Muffin Men. On bass is the inimitable Keith Mulholland whose bass playing is second to none. Now, if you are a true Deep Purple "anorak" Keith should be familiar to you. Keith was the bass player with Garth Rocket and the Moonshiners, Ian Gillan's alter ego in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Keith toured and recorded with Gillan and is still in touch with him. So you never know who might turn up at a DeePurple UK gig! On keyboards is our very own Jon Lord, Dave Goldberg. Apart from working with DeePurple UKhe has been seen knocking out the odd tune or two in his excellent Fleetwood Mac tribute ''Rumours Of Fleetwood Mac''. he is also a member of " Liverpool Express" and the Merseybeats, However in DeePurple UK tickling the ivories Jon Lord style is the order of the day and, as in the tradition of Mr. Lord, Dave certainly keeps those ivories smiling! Last but by no means least is our stalwart powerhouse of thunder, the amazing Adam Goldberg. Adam has been teaching drum kits a lesson for longer than he cares to remember. Adam is in high demand on the local and national scene and is currently working with the very brilliant Xander and the Peace Pirates. DeePurple UK has managed brilliantly to recreate the sound and feel of an original Deep Purple show, and has even had Ian Paice play drums with them, The power and energy blasts from the stage, transporting the audience back to the heady days of the 1970s when British Rock - true classic rock - ruled the World. This band is a truly must see experience.

8PM
