Brothers Zach, Harrison and Frazer Stanford and their cousin Bradley Carr played an acoustic set at the top of Scafell Pike, which at 3,209ft is England’s highest mountain.

After their mountain top gig the band of brothers went on to play at the highest pub in England The Tan Hill Inn.

Frazer said: “The gig on Scafell Pike was brilliant, we were lucky with the weather and the mountain was really busy with many people doing various challenges of their own or just taking in the stunning views, some of them had climbed up to see us play, we even met some people from King’s Lynn.”

The band had to ascend more than 3,000ft with their instruments before they could play at the summit and travelled a total of nine miles.

After their descent the band set off to the Tan Hill Inn in North Yorkshire to play their second gig. The pub sits on the Pennine way and provides stunning views over the Yorkshire moors. The band attracted quite a crowd and Frazer said: “The pub were really generous with donations and added over £450 to the sponsor money already pledged, my part time job money, car boots we had done and birthday money, adding up to around £3,800.”

Jimmy Rockit has been playing together since 2007 and their gig was live streamed through the band’s website and Facebook account and if you missed it, can still be viewed here.
