THE Adrenaline Live! weekend has got even more exciting with the music line up for Ski Rossendale now confirmed and new Skills and Equipment Demo opportunities announced for Sunday’s Lee Quarry Events.
On the live music side Chantel McGregor and the Oli Brown Band will be playing from a specially constructed stage in Ski Rossendale as the Ski and Snowboard exhibitions take place on the Saturday Evening. These are two of the great up and coming talents within the British music scene and Adrenaline Live! is an amazing opportunity to see them perform in Rossendale.
21 year old Chantel McGregor is a super talented guitarist and singer, playing a powerful mix of blues and rock reminiscent of the likes of Jimi Hendricks, Eric Clapton or Steve Vai. As Steve Lally said in his ‘Rock of the North’ review “See her before she gets too famous”.
Led by 19 year old guitar wizard Oli Brown, the Band was formed in 2007 and have already released their first album. Most of the bands numbers, which combine blues and funk, are written by Oli. The band has been getting rave reviews over the past year and was even chosen to represent Britain at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
At Lee Quarry the equipment demo’s promise something a bit special with some of the ‘Ferraris’ of the Mountain Bike World on show. As well as Giant, Commencal, Yeti & Tarty bikes being on show it has just been announced that Windwave will be launching the new Corsair frames at the event. And for those who want to home their Mountain Biking Skills a succession of Skills Workshops will be available under the instruction of top riders and taking in a range of specially constructed obstacles.
‘Adrenaline Live!’ is designed to test the ideas behind the Adrenaline Gateway project and is the first of what could be many events in the years to come. Gary Hood, Chief Executive of Rossendale Leisure Trust said “ Adrenaline Live! is an exciting glimpse of what the future might hold. As it’s our first such event we are keeping it deliberately small scale and have done limited promotion. We need to test our systems and convince funders before we can take it to the next stage. But if successful Adrenaline Live! could become an annual festival of outdoor sport, attracting people from across the country and inspiring local kids get involved in sport”.
Spectators can just turn up at venues on the day and enjoy an exciting package of free entertainment. For full event information go to www.adrenaline-gateway.co.uk.
