The Rattlers - Live On Stage

The Rattlers – Live On Stage

The Rattlers are a Sunderland based rock covers band playing great songs that everyone knows and likes that not many others play. They have been together for 5 years and feature Stu Ridley (lead guitar and vocals), Chris Haldane (guitar and vocals), Tony Roffe (bass and vocals) and the mighty John Paxton on pots, pans and all things percussion and drums.
They play all over the north in any music venue with beer and a good crowd and have been described as "already up there with the best on the local circuit", "fresh, unpredictable, and an absolute pleasure to see them perform" and "I haven’t seen any local band come close to this standard, their sound as a group was so in synch; it was just exciting to watch"
