The Band With No Name –and yes that is what they call themselves – are set to headline July’s First Thursday Music Club.

Thame’s monthly live music event has continued to go from strength to strength and attract unusual and charismatic acts to perform in the coveted 10pm slot.

The Band With No Name are compromised of Dave Bradley on vocals and rhythm guitar, Kevin Lucas on lead guitar, Clive Henry on harmonica, Clive Taylor on drums and Phil Westerman on bass.

The group are already well known in the town, having played indie/rock music at Thame Carnival.

For the Thursday Club show on July 5, the group will perform an acoustic set – although promise it will feature a selection of upbeat rock.

The band started when session guitarist Kevin was asked to find a group for a wedding and rounded up a few friends.

Kevin, who is involved with a host of bands, was later asked to book the wedding group for another show and said ‘oh that band that doesn’t have a name’ – which is how the group got its unusual title. Bassist Phil stresses that they play for fun and are not trying to ‘take it any further’.

On average the Thursday Club attracts up to 150 music fans and is described as ‘more of a gig than an open mic night’. Organisers say it is a chance for ‘talented, keen and ambitious’ musicians to make a mark.

The club has been running for two years in The Stables at the James Figg Pub.

The show starts at 8.30pm on July 5 and performers can sign up to play from 7.45pm.
