The band have been a hugely popular ‘must see’ on the local scene since 1997, and through various line-up changes the current five-piece are stronger than ever with a huge local following (including over 200 Facebook friends). Fronted by singer/guitarist Ian Adamson with worthy backing from Andy Bird (guitars and backing vocals), Paul Maguire (keys), Paul Greaves (bass) and Henry Forster (drums and percussion), the band’s set is largely based around note-perfect renditions of Pink Floyd songs. A host of gigs are in the pipeline until the end of the year. After playing in St Ives this week, their next stop is a performance at The Fordham Fest (also known as Fordham Music Festival) in Cambridgeshire, in which they’ll appear at 9pm on Friday August 6.

Blue Haze also appear tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, 3.30pm) at a talent contest at The Man On The Moon in Cambridge
