A GUITARIST is looking forward to a warm homecoming as he gets set to take to the stage with his high-energy band.
Newcastle rockers Eocene (left) are playing a free gig at The Studio, in Tower Street, Hartlepool, on Saturday, February 5.
Guitarist Jonny Wright is originally from Hartlepool and is looking forward to making a return.
He said: "I have fond memories of The Studio being a great venue and played some memorable gigs there with my old band In Blue.
"I'm looking forward to playing there again and having a pint of Camerons. "
The band played a number of festivals last year before going on to win North-East Battle of the Bands earlier this month.
Black Magic will be supporting the band on the night.
Doors open at 7.30pm.
