This Christmas we welcome glamrockers MUD to The Grand! So don’t be ‘Lonely This Christmas’, grab your friends and hit the dance floor for hits such as ‘Tiger Feet’, ‘Dyna-Mite’ & ‘The Secrets That You Keep’.

It’s almost fifty years since MUD had their first hit record ‘Crazy’ under the guidance of legendary producer Mickie Most and song-writers Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. They went on to score 3 UK number 1s, 11 UK top 10s and 15 UK top 40s as well as hits in Europe and many other parts of the world.                                                

Today, the band still has two surviving original members, ROB DAVIS and RAY STILES…(other originals Les Gray and David Mount having passed away). Rob has become a very successful songwriter having penned various hits for many artists including, most notably, Kylie Minogue (Can’t Get You Out Of My Head) and Sophie Ellis Bexter (Groovejet). Ray has been a member of The Hollies for the past thirty six years and still tours with them, playing sell-out shows in Australia, New Zealand, America, Europe, Scandinavia..and also the UK.        

The line-up of MUD is completed by PETE PHIPPS (drums), and KEITH READ (guitar). Pete was an original member of the Glitterband and also a touring member of the Eurythmics (with Annie Lennox). Keith is a long time friend of Rob and Ray – he was in the Wild Angels (a ‘fearsome’ rock n’roll band of the late 60s and early 70s). Keith shares vocal duties with Ray.

Mud still create an element of fun in their shows, and the set consists of all the hits.

Plus support The New Mindbenders, hit makers from the 60s performing all their hits including their number 1 ‘A Groovy Kind of Love’.
