The London-based band behind hit singles such as “She’s So Lovely” and “Elvis Ain’t Dead” told Hayley about their respect for the Armed Forces and their fundraising for Help for Heroes.
“We love the Forces … Thank you for your service”
The band came to Gibraltar for the music festival four years ago and were thrilled to be back.
“Look at the scenery, we just wandered out, saw the main stage with the Rock in the backdrop ... phenomenal, amazing festival.”
The military community based in Gibraltar were able to enjoy the two-day festival which took place just a few metres from RAF Gibraltar.
The band also have an interest in military history and they even celebrated guitarist Greg Churchouse’s birthday by taking a taxi ride in a Lancaster plane at Petwood, Lincolnshire, home of the Dambusters.
“We have a huge interest in military history.”
