The Hamsters set to descend on Diss Corn Hall

Essex rockers The Hamsters will be gracing Diss for the very first time on Friday, May 20.

This also could well be their last visit as earlier this year they announced their retirement after 25 years of touring.

On May 20 at the Diss Corn Hall, they will be performing their popular ZZ Top and Jimi Hendrix show.

The guitar, bass and drums trio have long been established as one of our premier Blues-Rock attractions, having performed over 4,000 concerts in 24 years.

Although usually playing their own brand of rootsy Rock, Blues and Americana - they will be performing two sets of Jimi Hendrix songs. Guitarist/singer Slim has also just been featured in Guitarist magazine's 'Blues Guitar Heroes' book.

The show will start from 8pm. Tickets are �15. Call the Corn Hall box office on 01379 652241.
