A MUCH-LOVED Warrington band will reform for one night only in memory of its frontman.

The 66 will come together once again for a special gig to celebrate the life and music of Danny Rimmer.

Led by his younger brother Liam Rimmer, the band will be taking to the stage on Friday, August 12 at Eagle Sports and Social Club, for a one-off hometown performance.

The special event will see original band members Mike Bee, Craig Harman and Paul Glover joined by Liam Rimmer on lead vocals and Chris Peake on drums.

It will mark ten years since Danny’s death and will give friends, family, and fans from across the region a chance to pay tribute to the popular frontman.

Formed in 2007, The 66 propelled themselves to local legend status, thanks to their unforgettable live performances.

Highly rated by music journalists and gig-goers, The 66 made a huge impact on the local scene and far beyond, with shows at Hard Rock Cafe Manchester, Liverpool Sound City and Dublin Castle, to name just a few.

Liam Rimmer, Danny’s brother, said: “I don't think I know how to describe what this night personally means to me but I know what it represents, an incredible life, all-be-it short, a life celebrated, a life remembered, and a life loved.

"This gig will be a swirling, emotional, foot-stomping celebration, an all-out homage to not only Danny but to our friends and family, who have certainly kept me here at times. I'll see you down at the front!”
