Spinoff has played at a range of venues from the Albatross boat at Wells to the Holiday Inn at Norwich Airport and does a wide array of covers including Oasis, The Police, Sex Pistols, Maroon5 and the Beatles.

It is made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Gary Winter, drummer Steve Corrigan, guitarist Simon Rudd and bass player Andy Dunnett.

Steve, who was part of the world record breaking drum marathon in Dereham a few years ago, has got a place at the London Drum Tech Academy in October, so will be leaving.
