A GROOVY Happening live music night – the 108th – takes place at Haworth on Saturday, August 7.

The event – upstairs at the Parkside Social Club, from 7.30pm – showcases local musical talent and raises funds for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, Manorlands.

Admission is £4.

Over the years, the event has coined-in £37,850.

First-up on August 7 will be James Archibald, making his second appearance at Groovy Happening. He plays a variety of styles, but particular influences are flamenco and classical guitar.

Next is Groovy debutant Ship’s Cat, a Leeds-based band comprising vocalist Nicky Jones, guitarist Phillip Veitch, Stephen Palmer on bass and Richard Parker on drums.

It will be followed by Tonight We Ride, a band formed in lockdown and making its first outing. The brainchild of cousins Lee Crabtree – on bass/vocals – and guitarist Wayne Marshall, they are joined by drummer Chuck Stones, performing classic sounds and songs of Americana.

And headlining is The Flow, making its second appearance at Groovy.

The four-piece band – based in Idle – was formed in August, 2018.

Its genre of music is generally rock and indie, playing covers of bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs.
