Dave Drifts Back

Coffee Club listeners will get a blast from the past this week as they hear from one of our former presenters.

But Dave Robinson won't be hosting a programme. He'll be singing.

Over the past few Sundays, Dave has been performing at The Bromborough Pub, which just happens to be the local of presenter Steve Evans.

In the guise of duo Drift, Dave has been singing an array of music and had the regulars joining in and dancing as he belted out hits from various bands including Erasure, Stereophonics, Oasis, REM, Coldplay, Eagles, Status Quo and The Beatles.

Steve will be showcasing some of their music on his show next Wednesday 10th July.

To top off Sunday just gone, local singer Karen Lowe, who has performed on more than one occasion on Radio Clatterbridge, sang three hits to finish the evening in some style with Beatles and Paul McCartney songs after Drift's show stopper - Gary Moore's Still Got The Blues.

Dave and Drift perform all over Wirral and Liverpool and more recently in North Wales, often playing two gigs a day. They can also be seen in Mackenzie in Birkenhead, O'Neills in Liverpool and various other well known establishments. 

Karen, who regularly performed on Manchester's club scene, can often be seen busking on the streets of Liverpool to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
