Matchbox to spark up third-time-lucky York Ted-Fest 5 at Huntington WMC in October

Rockabilly rebels Matchbox top the York Ted-Fest 5 bill on October 30

STRIKE a light, look who will be headlining York Ted-Fest 5 at the Huntington WMC, York, on October 30. Step forward Matchbox, those rockabilly good old boys, still playing with their original hit-making 1980s’ line-up.

“York Rock’n’Roll Club continues to put rock’n’roll and rockabilly music there for the masses, reminding everyone why rock’n’roll is still around after 60 years,” says organiser Dave Williamson.

“Our next big gig in York after all these restrictions is our twice-postponed Ted-Fest 5, now taking place at the Huntington WMC, in North Moor Road, next month. Joining Matchbox will be Phil Haley & His Comments, who are the nearest thing to Bill Haley you will ever see.”

Echoes Of The Past DJ will be spinning discs at the 6pm to 11.45pm event; tickets cost £12 on the door.
