Music fans flocked to a Nantwich pub this weekend for a Bank Holiday live music bonanza.

The Boot and Shoe pub, on  Hospital Street, put on a series of bands on three nights in a marquee in the pub grounds.

1980s Electronica tribute band “Electro80s” kicked off the festival when they performed on Friday.

Despite the rain the marquee was full of hundreds of people revelling in a nostalgic evening of music.

Electro 80s recreated songs by artists including Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Yazoo, OMD, A Flock of Seagulls, Kraftwerk, Duran Duran, Human League, Erasure, Soft Cell, and Gary Numan.

Their show was accompanied by a light display and robotic dancer ‘Man O’ Chrome’.

“Kaiser Monkey Killers” performed on Saturday and played a variety of covers, particularly the Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys and The Killers.

And “Vavoom”, a rock and roll band inspired by The Stray Cats, early Elvis and the Brian Setzer Orchestra, played their live set on Sunday night (August 25).
