Introducing VISITATION

VISITATION have stepped in to replace LED HENDIX who, due to unforeseen circumstances, can no longer make it. 

VISITATION is a three-piece Classic/Space Rock band from Rugby, and Redditch. Formed in the early 1990's, their current line-up consists of David Nigel Derrick (Guitar, Theremin, Spaciness, Vocals), Bryan Beasley (Drums, Keyboards) and Mike Webb (Bass Guitar).

Playing a mixture of their own compositions, and some covers by bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Hawkwind, and Pink Floyd, VISITATION produce a unique mixture of driving rock, psychedelic moods, and dub-reggae beats, to generate a truly original soundscape of musical ideas. VISITATION have played in pubs, festivals and bike rallies around the country over the past 20 years.
