Another band has been added to the line-up for a free Northumberland music festival.

The 80s’ party for Northumberland Live in Bedlington is now complete with the announcement that chart-topping legends Johnny Hates Jazz will be joined on Saturday July 16, at Gallagher Park, by the one and only, Modern Romance.

Audiences can spread their wings and flock down to the best free gig in town as Northumberland Live at Bedlington promises to crank up the music and let the sing-along, rock and roll juke box kick into action.

Modern Romance are famous for filling dance floors across Europe with their Brit-Funk-Latin grooves and getting people to shake their hips to such UK chart classics as Everybody Salsa, which was number 12 in 1981, the number 10 hit Ay Ay Ay Ay Moosey, The Best Years of Our Lives, which reached number four in 1982, and other songs such as Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White, High Life and the number seven hit Walking in the Rain.

Their brand of infectious music is brought to life by a live band.
