Food Gusto festivals aren’t just about food, they are about having a good time, giving local talent a chance to show off. We pair brilliant food and drink with amazing local music to give you a great day out. Information for 2019 will be below soon, but find 2018’s programme below!
Saturday – Sincerely Yours
On Saturday 8th September people danced and sung along to music from mother and daughter duo Sincerely Yours, performing some of the best hits from the 1940s and ‘50s with a Cilla Black tribute.
Sunday – Live Music Organised by Rob Lea
On the Sunday, we were joined by local singer Rob Lea. Rob Lea is a solo, singer/guitarist from Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Rob has been performing in the area for over 7 years and has a reputation for being one of the shining lights in the local music scene. As well as performing locally, Rob also has experience playing gigs all over Europe with his band The Four Kicks – a Kings of Leon tribute band, which he formed due to the uncanny, vocal similarity he bares to the lead singer Caleb.
Rob’s voice has also been likened to other, successful, male artists such as Paolo Nutini – perhaps due to the husky tones both singers possess. Rob Lea is a fantastic acoustic musician with an extremely eclectic mix of Motown, Soul, Rock, Indie and Pop hits delivered in his own smooth, unique style to set the perfect relaxed tone to taste some of the best food and drink the region has to offer.
