This is a venture that has been along time in progress. Finally booked our first show, to hopefully start something big. We have got sponsorship from Marshall Amplification, Blackstar Amps, Seymour Duncan, Ernie Ball Strings and Jim Dunlop Accessories who, for our opening night have given us some great prizes for lucky ticket buyers. We will be giving away about £1000 worth or products from these companies on the night.Here the the details;

Time: 8.00pm-Very Late

Price: £5.00 (£6.00 inc. Recorded Delivery via http://www.tiny.cc/slashtribute)
It all started after Gavin Barnard had a 3 year stint with top Guns N Roses tribute "Guns 2 Roses" After leaving Guns 2 Roses and gaining the respect and reputation as the best Slash and Guns N Roses tribute in the world, he thought it would be great to play Slash's back catalogue instead of just Guns N Roses. Now in 2010, and after the release of Slash's solo album, there is no better time to hit the road. Booking enquiries have been coming in after word spread of the new venture.
"Slash and Friends" will be playing there first show in their home town of Bognor Regis. The event is sure to sell out, after 3 previous Guns 2 Roses shows in Gavin's home town did the same in record time at the venue.
Slash only did one UK club show, so it would be good for people to hear the songs off the record in a live situation.
Our set will include hits such as Sweet Child O' Mine, Civil War, Night Train by Guns N Roses. Beggars and Hangers On, Mean Bone by Slash's Snakepit. Slither, Fall to Pieces, Dirty Little Thing by Velvet Revolver. As well as Slash's solo songs Back from Cali, Ghost, Starlight and Dr. Alibi. A total 90-mins of Slash's history.
