Homecoming performance for successful West Norfolk band Deaf Havana

Nine years after their last performance in King's Lynn, an alternative rock band will be making their homecoming this summer.

Deaf Havana will be playing at the Alive Corn Exchange in Lynn on Thursday, July 11.

In 2010, the band embarked on a 29 date tour which include their last performance in Lynn at Bar Red on Norfolk Street.

And now they are back following this morning's announcement.

The homecoming show is sandwiched between two festival performances, Camden Rocks and 2000 Trees, where Deaf Havana will headline both events.

The pop rock-outfit have also released their fifth studio album called 'Rituals' last year.

It scored the group their second consecutive UK Top 10 album.

The homecoming show, which starts at 7pm, has been put together by Twisted Melon Promotions and The Fort.

Triston Finnis of Twisted Melon said: "I've been trying to bring Deaf Havana back to King's Lynn for many years, for one reason or another its never quite happened.

"However, six weeks ago the band approached saying the time was right for a hometown show and would I put it on for them.

"As well as a massive homecoming show for Deaf Havana, I'll be showcasing three more West Norfolk acts at different stages of their careers."

Dead Reynolds, a five piece Alt-Rock band were officially formed in October, 2018 and will be joining Deaf Havana at the Corn Exchange.

The Eastern Counties-based band's latest single 'Pieces' has gained plenty of radio coverage with an EP release imminent.

King's Lynn act, The Extons, will also be performing. Their early demo, Grown Ups was featured as BBC's Introducing Track of the Week, played by Huw Stephens on Radio 1.

Their single "I Won't Leave Lonely" has also been acclaimed by Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music as well as Huw Stephens.

Young band Eluders will complete the line-up, a punk act championed by BBC Introducing Norfolk and KLFM's Loaded.
