If you’re hooked on a good time, cast your eyes towards Tring’s Court Theatre on Saturday night, because Soulfish are the bait at an eagerly-awaited Christmas bash.

The 10-piece soul band are set to sell out the 400-seat venue, where they only appear once every two years to keep the crowds keen.

Anyone who saw them at Tring Carnival in the summer will know all about the energy they bring to a set packed with Motown, Atlantic and Stax covers, and it’s no surprise that there are only a handful of tickets still on sale.

Event promoter John Bowyer-Reed said yesterday: “It’s fantastic that it’s been so successful”.

St Albans-based Soulfish, who boast former members of a string of chart-topping bands and performers with a stack of West End experience in their ranks, have performed all over the country since forming 15 years ago, and as well as performing at high profile gigs like Proms In The Park are festival favourites – they headlined on home ground at the Childwickbury Arts fair in the summer.

But the Court provides them with a perfect venue.

John said: “It has a great stage, great acoustics, it gives the band a great connection with the crowd”.

Also on the bill on Saturday are Old Country Union, a Bucks-based acoustic rock band from Buckinghamshire, and special guests 2-Tone, with their trademark ska sounds.

There will be a limited number of £17.50 tickets available on the door, but for more information call 07543 560478 or visit www.courttheatre.co.uk
