UP and coming bands are expected to join the famous Red Touch when they perform next month.

The group are set to play the Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone on February 7, with support from local band Sticky Tyres and Forerunner.

Fronted by Vic Hyland and Chris Penfold, Red Touch just had their song Jazmin used in a film called Godforsaken which was shown at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

Mr Hyland said: "Here we are again looking forward to a new year and what that will bring.

"Things seem to be getting tighter in the outside world and we think it is time to feel good, go and see some great live music and enjoy life."

The music for the evening will be a mix of the rock blues and jazz influences of the band featuring his driving guitar work covering such greats as Hendrix, Santana and Clapton.

The band's line up includes Chris Cassar on bass, Kris Fowler on drums, Chris Penfold on keyboards and Vic Hyland on guitar and vocals with special guest appearances as well.

Members of Red Touch are the musicians behind the highly successful Bluescamp Project that gets people who have instruments in their house and makes them into performing musicians
