A WESTON band is gearing up for a prominent spot at the upcoming South West Pride festival.

The Neuros will open the main music event at Somerset’s first gay and lesbian festival, which is being held in Weston on July 21.

The band formed in August 2011, and consists of vocalist Shaunus, guitarist and vocalist Jamir, bassist Phillipo and drummer Marko.

They will open the event at the pride main stage on Beach Lawns on July 21. Gates will open at 2pm.

The band, who play a mixture of covers and original material, have played more than 25 gigs since forming and launched their debut EP.

Jamir said: “We are a group of mates who formed a band using all our own musical styles and came up with our own unique genre, which has earned us a great following and some incredible bookings that we could have never imagined when we started out”

As well as the music event, which will feature an eclectic line-up including 1990s boy band 911, there will be the Over The Rainbow variety show at The Playhouse Theatre on July 20 which will be followed by a launch party at Barzinger in St James Street.

As well as the main music event on July 21 there will also be stalls and rides, and the festival will be concluded by a VIP party night at the Winter Gardens.
