Classic songs from classic performers

From the four corners of the globe they come - from England, Wales, Australia and the United States - but they are all sailing under one flag: The Jack Tars.

But who are The Jack Tars - and what is their background?

The members are none other than Captain Sensible of The Damned, Slim Jim Phantom of Stray Cats, Chris Cheney of The Living End, and Mike Peters of The Alarm.

A band of brothers reincarnated from the souls of dead men, The Jack Tars are destined to plunder the treasures of their collective past to create a new synergy of rock and roll forged from the bones of punk, rockabilly and modern alternative rock.

Audiences will be able to catch The Jack Tars when they step ashore to set light to the stages of the UK with a broadside of classics such as Neat Neat Neat, Rock This Town, Prisoner Of Society, Sixty Eight Guns and many more.

Playing songs that have helped define a generation, and written by the hands that steer The Jack Tars, this furious four aim their ship towards new musical horizons and the promise of further rock and roll adventures.

Now on tour, The Jack Tars stop off at The Picturedrome, Holmfirth, on Friday, December 4, doors at 7.30pm, music from 8pm.

Tickets are £17.50 in advance from 0844 478 0898.
