Their last studio album Classic Fantastic was released back in 2003 but now they are returning to rock Weston.

The trio now reside in the UK and play a mixture of music, including hiphop, rock, blues, jazz R&B, as well as punk and funk.

Their most famous hit Scooby Snacks is sure to be performed, along with Come Find Yourself and 100 Per Cent Columbian.

The Mercury has teamed up with Hazy Days to offer four lucky winners a chance to go to the event on July 8.

Hazy Days will be at The Tropicana, in Marine Parade, on July 7 and 8.

The music starts at 6.30pm on July 7, through until midnight. On July 8, doors open at 11.30am and music will start at noon and be performed until 11pm.
