COME and join Hunting Faction as they celebrate the history of rock music with an epic live performance in the Back Room of The Star Inn on Thursday, September 21 as Guildford Fringe present Hunting Faction’s Night of Rock.
Sharing their passion for the hits of some of the most iconic and influential bands over the last few decades, you’ll be thoroughly entertained by Josh Zac Hawkins on Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Jacob Leeson on Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals, Ed Tunningley on Bass Guitar and Backing Vocals, and Craig Russell on Drums.
This hard rock band will be covering the greatest artists of all time. Rock out to Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Nirvana, Alter Bridge and many more.
Josh Zac Hawkins explains how Hunting Faction evolved: “The four of us met studying at Guildford School of Acting on Musical Theatre and Actor Musician courses in 2015. We got talking and realised that all four of us had our own unique passions around rock and metal music.
“Jacob had a lot of appreciation for classic rock bands like Guns & Roses and The Rolling Stones; Ed loved the old British metal of Iron Maiden and Def Leppard; I listened to a lot of grunge and modern American rock/metal like Nirvana, Linkin Park and Black Stone Cherry; and Craig had heard of Alter Bridge (who ironically have probably become our biggest influence).
“We’ve hung out ever since, shared pretty much every artist and style we each like and somehow haven’t gotten sick of each other.”
Rock isn’t necessarily a genre that you would expect four musical theatre students to gravitate towards, but Josh says: “I love performing rock music; I just feel a release with busting out good music that I don’t get with anything else. You can pretty much express any emotion possible and it’s a genre with endless possibilities.
“Groups like Queen, Nirvana and AC/DC all wrote songs that people still relate to and play now because they didn’t care too much about what everyone else thought about them; they wrote in a way they wanted to write.”
Join four guys with a passion for pleasing a crowd with two electric guitars, a bass and a drum kit as they rock out in the Back Room of The Star Inn this September.
