A FIVE-piece alternative rock band which took inspiration from Skegness in its early formation, is set to perform two exciting gigs in town.

Take The Seven visited the area two years ago when the band first got together and while playing a game of crazy golf, one of the poorer game players had to regularly ‘take the seven’ in putts, hence how the name was created.

The band claim they have not only rock vibes but mix it using a distinctive style and sound, which can be heard on Friday, October 12 at the Links Hotel and the following day, Saturday, October 13 at The Ship and Atlantic Bar, Roman Bank, Skegness.

Revellers can look forward to meeting Dan Molloy - vocals, Si Redfern - lead guitar, James Hall - rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Joe Kitson - bass guitar and backing vocals and Gaz Oldale - drums.

Based around Chesterfield, North Derbyshire and Sheffield, the band have now been together for two years, working hard to write and record original material.

The band’s first debut seven-track EP ‘Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious’ can be heard on Facebook, iTunes, Amazon MP3, Myspace Music, Spotify and at
“Take The Seven even covered Adele’s ‘Set Fire To The Rain’, offering a completely different take on a contemporary favourite and exposing the band to a far greater audience,” said Becky Matthews, band promoter.

“If you haven’t seen it, be sure to check it out at”

The resulting exposure has led to news features on the band in Rock Sound Magazine and Kerrang! magazine and a lot of air coverage on Alex Baker’s Kerrang! Radio unsigned show.

“Take the Seven continue to play as many live shows as possible throughout the country and have been fortunate enough to share the stage with acts such as Senses Fail, Glamour Of The Kill, Failsafe, My Passion, Sonic Boom Six and InMe,” added Becky.

The lads were also recently invited to play a gig at a music festival in Barcelona at one of the largest clubs, KGB Sala.

Admission is free to both gigs on Friday, October 12 and 13. The band is hoping to see lots of faces from the Skegness area.
