Renowned artists from all over the world have and continue to perform at Whitby Pavilion and as this is our first rock show here, we have kept in line with this tradition with three red-hot rock bands led by legendary musicians......Zal Cleminson's sin'dogs - Ken Pustelnik's Groundhogs - Stray
Zal Cleminson is widely respected for his work with The Sensational Alex Harvey Band providing incendiary guitar and writing on seminal albums such as Next, Framed, The Impossible Dream, and others. Zal also played guitar in Nazareth for several years in the late 70s, early 80s, and worked as a session musician touring with Elkie Brooks, Bonnie Tyler, and Midge Ure
Way back in the halcyon days of rock, there came a trio of 'superheroes' known as the Groundhogs. Now Ken Pustelnik brings you a new and exciting line-up - Groundhogs, playing that classic material with verve and power, and giving performances of energy and excitement that are as fresh and relevant to the modern audience as the originals were back in the day.
Originally formed by four school friends back in 1966, by 1970 Stray had released their first album simply titled “Stray” and were a hugely popular act on the club scene in the UK and Europe. They are still one of the hardest gigging and excellent live acts on the circuit. With founder member Del Bromham on guitar and vocals, the band will play a selection of songs, which they have recorded over the years
Built in 1878, Whitby Pavilion nestles in the West Cliff and has wonderful views over the North Sea and the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey that was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. The theatre is well equipped with up-to-date sound and lighting facilities yet retains the wonderful atmosphere of its Victorian origins.
No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone's taste!
