AFTER a ten-year hiatus, rock'n'roll nights are to return to The Crescent community venue, off Blossom Street, York, from July 21 when The Rhythm Aces resume where they left off a decade ago.

"The last rockin' gig was in 2008 with The Rhythm Aces and the first one back there will be The Rhythm Aces!" says York Rock'n'Roll club promoter Dave Williamson. "Along with top rock'n'roll DJ Echoes Of The Past and real ale, this will be a fabulous evening of 1950s' rock'n'roll music."

The Crescent brings back happy memories for Dave. "It was a legendary club in its day when it hosted rock'n'roll nights every month for more than 15 years, and many top bands played there," he says.

"It's great to be back, opening with The Rhythm Aces, a top band who play authentic Fifties-style rock'n'roll. Their last album, Hand Me Down Suits 'N' Hobnail Boots, was met with critical acclaim and all the tracks were originals. They play all over Europe and are well respected on the scene."

The show will run from 7.30pm to 11.30pm; admission is £8 on the door.
