DANCE the night away with a rock blues band taking the stage.

Melvin Hancox Band are rocking out at Pontypool's Borough Blues Club from 7.30pm on Saturday.

Performers, Ray Richman and Tom Harper, will be led by Melvin Hancox, who has been described as a "genius" and played his first gig at the young age of 12.

Signing his first record deal at 16, Melvin and the band are sure to blow the roof off with their performance.

This is one of many exciting acts lined up this year at the venue, which is on Off Station Road, in Cwmbran.

Next month there will be a gig by Honeyboy Hickling Band, with Guy Tortora, Stephen Dale Petit and Built For Comfort performing in the following months.

Tickets to watch The Melvin Hancox Band are £10, or £8 for members.
