Man to play Parc Hall

Legendary Welsh prog-rock band Man are to play Parc Hall, Cwmparc on Wednesday 7 October.

For over 35 years,
Man have delighted fans, angered police and rocked the world with their music. The incorporations of the younger generations Aces' might mean they are able to continue for the next thirty five. Man first started off at the end of the sixties, called it a day towards the end of the seventies, then in the early eighties realized they could do nothing better than get together again.

They have been through more lineups than you can shake a stick at, with various members coming and going at a rate which gives Pete Frame nightmares. (Pete loved Deke's books, by the way). Micky, Martin and Deke have pretty much been the core of the Manband, though a while back Terry Williams had another spell after John (Pugwash) Weathers had kept the drum stool warm for a few years; and Phil Ryan returned for a brief period after a 20 year hiatus.
Right now, the exact nature of the Manband may be open to interpretation; but the line up Martin Ace has put together at the start of 2009 is:
  • Martin Ace: bass, vocals
  • Josh Ace: guitar, vocals
  • James Beck: guitar
  • Rene Robrahn: drums
  • Phil Ryan: keyboards, vocals
Door open at 7:30 pm with tickets £10 Advance and £12 On the door.
