They have appeared with some of the biggest name in show business - and at many of the country’s best known venues.

However, a local trio called ‘Legacy’ really will be going back to their roots when they perform ‘one off show’ at The Bull Hotel in Horncastle on Friday.

The band is comprised of father and son Geoff (drums) and Andrew (guitar) Gammon who live in Fulletby - and Brock Arlo Eddowes (bass guitar) from Caenby Corner.

Geoff used to back Joe Longthorne and was the resident drummer at the Mayfair Hotel in London.

Andrew, a former pupil at Monks Dyke Technical College in Louth, has performed in a Burt Bacharach Tribute Tour, and a Neil Diamond Tribute show starring Brian Connelly and choreographed by Craig Revell-Hall.

That led to regular appearances at the Dominium Theatre in London in ‘We Will Rock You’ - the hit show about the group Queen.

From there, Andrew went on to the Shaftesbury Theatre to play in ‘Rock Of Ages.’

He then toured the country with Jason Donovan in the show ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’ and more recently spent 10 months with a touring production of ‘Rock Of Ages.’

Apart from performing, Andrew has completed a number of original recordings of his work at studios in Ealing.

He’s hoping to get the records into the public domain.

Kristin Haggi, the director of ‘Rock of Ages’. travelled from America to oversee the recording sessions and Andrew has visited New York and Los Angeles with the aim of meeting people in the music industry.

One of his songs has been mentioned as a perfect soundtrack for the new James Bond Film ‘24’ but Andrew admits it is difficult getting his records listened to by the ‘right people’ - despite some influential support.

Brock, meanwhile, has just finished playing at a production of ‘Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.’

*Friday’s gig at The Bull Hotel event is due to start around 9.15pm.
