‘Foot stomping rock and roll’ is set to ring in the Christmas week with a bang from a Blackpool-based AC/DC tribute act AC/BC.

Their Christmas bash is headed for The Royal Oak, Lytham Road, next Friday, December 19.

Making a special guest appearance on the night is also singer Frank Knight, a bandmate of AC/BC drummer Kim Sweeney with other ventures including Boobz, The Savages and Insectocutor, who has toured with AC/DC drummer Chris Slade and written for Accept, UDO and X-Wild.

Kim said: “Frank has a new album out with his band Knighthood called Bad Habits. He’s played Wacken & Bloodstock festivals and Jenks and nearly every venue in Blackpool at one time and will be kicking up a storm on stage with the AC/BC boys on the night.

“Over the last year AC/BC have honed their show at a plethora of gigs which include Blackpool and the North West, Manchester, Nottingham and London, all arranged by road manager and lighting/pyrotechnics engineer Lee Merrison.

“AC/BC play the Bon Scott era of AC/DC, primarily focusing on the Paris 1979 concert.

“We know it’s a Christmas bash but we treat every gig like it’s Christmas; we give AC/DC fans a fun time and a night to remember.

“Our priority is good time, foot stomping rock and roll”.
