Sidewinder is a group of four guys who share the same passion for rock music: Dave Catherall as front man on vocals and rhythm guitar, Matt Aldridge on lead guitar, Lionel Hutt on bass and Stephen Davies on drums. Their influences range from classic rock to modern hard rock; Thin Lizzy and The Cult, through the Foo Fighters and Stereophonics, to ACDC and Metallica. And their gig setlists cover all those well-known tracks from decades of rock, that everyone knows and loves to sing along too.
The band got together early in 2014 with plenty of musical venture pedigree; Lionel’s highly successful semi-pro band “The Adam’s Jovi Experience”, Dave and Steve’s “One Way Street” covers band, and Matt’s local rock/metal band “Prophecy”. They realise that like-minded band members are the key to holding a great band together – no egos, no arguments, no politics – just four great friends and great musicians, who enjoy making great music to entertain.
