HARTLEPOOL band The Jar Family are back on Teesside - and fans still have chance to snap up tickets for a big gig tomorrow night.

With new material to their name and fresh from some brilliant gigs down south and some good rehearsal sessions, the boys are all set to impress the Teesside crowd at Middlesbrough Town Hall.

As they do every time the band head back home, Hartlepool fans have snapped their tickets up in abundance.

But there are still a limited number available from Cafe 33, in Park Road, and The Other Record Shop, in Errol Street, where fans can also book a place on a coach going to and from Middlesbrough.

The band, made up of Hartlepool lads Al Devon, Max Bianco, Richie Docherty, Chris Hooks and “Dali” as well as former Squeeze bassist Keith Wilkinson and Kez Edwards, will be playing their new material ahead of the release of their hotly-tipped new album.

It’s the first chance for many Teesside fans to hear the band’s new songs, which have caused quite a stir online and at gigs down south.

Al Devon, vocals, said: “We can’t wait for tomorrow night now.

“It’s always a nice buzz to come back to Teesside, we are all really excited.

“We have got some really good rehearsal sessions under our belt and a cracking show lined up.”

The Jar Family are supported by the excellent Manchester rock and soul four-piece The Quangos.
