New Hemel Hempstead-based rock covers band Fuzz’d Up! has landed a major gig at this year’s Main Event at Santa Pod Raceway, performing to thousands of petrolheads at one of the biggest events on the motor racing calendar.

Newly-formed Fuzz’d Up! is a rock band made of musicians from the Hertfordshire area who have been working together on the live music circuit.

Playing covers of the alt-rock and classic rock songs that everyone loves to hear, the band can also perform “Fuzz’d Up!” versions of pop songs by contemporary artists such as Adele.

Backing them will be a red-hot rhythm section featuring David Masters on lead guitar, Jamie Fisher on drums and band founder Richard Staines on bass.

Hemel-based musician Richard Staines said: “I am so proud to be performing at such a huge event after launching Fuzz’d Up! earlier this year.
