New guitarist to join band in their 25th year
A ROCK band has double reason to celebrate as they begin their 25th year with a new member.
The Dangerous Brothers have recruited a new guitarist and will begin rehearsing soon.
The new addition comes after their previous and long-standing guitarist Rick Lockwood, pictured, stepped down.
Karl Brumby, the band's bass player, said they want to keep the identity of their new member a surprise from fans at the moment and will announce who it is later this month.

However, he has promised fans there will be some great new material to look out for, as they start a new chapter.
He said: "This is a great time for us as we enter our 25th year.
"I want to take this opportunity to thank all our fans for their continuous support."
Their latest guitarist will also join Steve Newby, the lead singer, and Martin Cave, drummer.
Karl said: "We are like a family unit and the best of friends.
"It was sad to see Rick leave but I wish him well and I am sure we will keep in close contact."
Rick says he will continue to support the band but now as a fan instead of playing on stage.
He said: "It has been a privilege to work with such great musicians over the past 20 years.
"I have been part of a huge family really and I know whoever their new guitarist is, they will be looked after well by the lads.
"I was in a band before Dangerous Brothers and was lucky enough to tour all over the country.
"However, nothing beats performing in your local town.
"It was also a great pleasure to have worked with Keith Line, the late drummer of the Dangerous Brothers.
"I have no intention of giving up my music and I will continue to record at home."
Rick was also full of praise for Grimsby for having such talented musicians living within the town.
He said: "There is a lot of young talent here, which is great to see.
"Many young bands who supported us during live gigs are now making their own success and have people to support them."
