Getting Ready for Mayfest

Stealer will be doing a small but perfectly formed set at the Mayfest at Tracks @ The Railway, North Elmham, near Dereham, Norfolk, from 7.30-ish Saturday 5 May.You can find all you need to know about Mayfest here. For the hard-of-linking, Mayfest is ...

an annual festival of local music, held at the Railway Tavern Pub over the Mayday bank holiday weekend. Up to 30 local bands play over the four days on two stages. This year the festival moves away from its traditional folk and acoustic roots, to cover more rock and electric based genres. As always there will be hot and cold food available all day, a wide selection of real ales, and free camping. Ticket cost is £5 per day and donations will be made to the Poppy Appeal.

Not all the slots are filled, but the story so far looks like this...

There'll also be a busking stage, weather permitting, on the Saturday and Sunday.

Stealer to play at Rockstock

Stealer has booked a slot at Rockstock, the annual charity music event that takes place on Overstrand sports ground each autumn - this year on Saturday 8th September. Organised by local musician Rade Stamatov, Rockstock has been going for five years and attracts a bigger audience each year. There'll be a mix of established bands and new talent, and lots of food and drink!

Paul Noon - Paranormal Investigator

When Paul isn't being the lead singer in Stealer, he's off bustin' ghosts. Here he is investigating an old church that's been haunted by - a hedgehog. Whether the hedgehog is called Dinsdale or Spiny Norman is not recorded.

Tracks - Saturday 5 May

The new line up of Stealer will be making its d├ębut on Saturday 5 May at the Mayfest hosted by the Railway at North Elmham, in its purpose-built Tracks venue. That night will be rock night, and Stealer will be showcasing 45 minutes of its music, from 8:30pm. Other bands on the bill that night are likely to include Bad TouchAstral Void, Shock! Hazard, the Surrogates and My Cocoon, with more to be arranged. "Slots are filling up quick," says Mayfest MC Martin Dixon. The program will be very varied. "Basically, a bit of everything Friday night," says Martin, "Rock and Metal Saturday," (that's us!) "a more chilled vibe Sunday, and Folk on Monday." Martin promises to have a full programme out soon, and when we hear more, we'll post it here. Rock, and, moreover, Roll.
