BIMM Manchester band Good Foxy are putting some fresh young blood into good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll, and their tireless energy, raw talent and commitment to gigging – 100 shows so far and counting – has won them a support slot with the legendary Status Quo. On 3rd of July the band will open for Quo at their Symphony at the Tower gig in the grounds of Houghton Towers in Preston, Lancashire.
Good Foxy’s music taps into a host old-school classic influences, including Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and The Doors. The classic rock slant to their sound has previously won them support slots with The Smiths Ltd, Limehouse Lizzy and The Doors Alive. The band are honoured to be supporting an established act like Status Quo and excited to have the chance to reach a whole new rock-loving crowd:
“We are privileged to be able to play with a legendary band like Status Quo. They have had one of the longest and most successful careers of all time. This will be our biggest crowd so far!”
Goof Foxy are made up of George Banks (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Henry Crabtree (Guitar & Vocals), Freddie Bruhin–Price (Bass & Poetry), Callum Sykora (Drums & Percussion) and James Robinson (Keyboards, Harmonica & Vocals). George and Freddie are currently studying at BIMM Manchester while Henry and James will be starting their courses their next year.
2015 is definitely a good year for Good Foxy. The band are set to play at the Beatherder Festival, Cloudspotting Festival and Hebden Trades Club before they head out on a mini-tour in September, playing three dates in the UK and three dates in Sweden. Their debut music video for their high-energy song ‘High Watt’ (below) has had almost 15,000 views and the band successfully reached their Kickstarter target to record a debut album which will appear in the autumn. Good work Good Foxy!
