MUSIC revellers in Leek ended the summer festival season in style at the weekend in the car park of a public house.

The Wilkes Head was the venue for W2012 Party in the Car Park, which included an acoustic evening on Saturday evening and a series of music bands showcasing their talents throughout Sunday afternoon and evening.

The weather stayed dry for the final instalment of minimusic festivals at the St Edward Street pub for 2012.

Rockers Driver Junior kicked off the proceedings on Sunday with their first performance for many years after disbanding, followed by Cardinal, who played a host of covers including ‘All Right Now’ by the Rolling Stones, Erasure’s ‘Give A Little Respect’ hit, and ‘Somebody Told Me’ by The Killers.

The established local band of The Tetleys continued the party with a number of selfpenned tunes as well as covers.

The ever-energetic and entertaining One Million Fingers took to the outdoor stage next with covers such as ‘Hot And Cold’ by Katy Perry, as well as their own material such as Dead Man Walking.

The Fires played a great set and The Funk Breakers performed tunes such as Wishing On A Star by Paul Weller, before Flank Dub Department slowed things down a little with some smooth drum and bass tunes. The evening was completed in style with a bouncing set of Ska music by the Wilkes’ performing veterans The Skalinskis.

Yet again, The Wilkes Head’s landlord Malcolm Moger hosted an excellent two-day Party in the Car Park free music event with the help of his loyal crew and bar staff.
