Organisers of the Tramlines Festival in Sheffield have announced they will open the Devonshire Green stage on the Friday night with a Sheffield showcase with The Everly Pregnant Brothers, Velocity Brown and the Hotrods and The Stars Band

Long-renowned as firm Sheffield favourites, The Everly Pregnant Brothers are renowned for Their tongue-in-cheek reworkings of famous tracks, all drenched in Sheffield humour.

Velocity Brown and the Hotrods are something of a Sheffield supergroup and their rockabilly style is a fixture on the 1950s revival scene.

Completing the bill are a special goup, The Stars Band, who were created at Under The Stars, a music project for people with a range of hidden disabilities.

The festival runs from July 22 to 24.
