Seventh heaven for songwriters
SEVEN of the town's top songwriters will come together to play on one stage tomorrow.
After a short period of solace within the music world, Orphan Boy's Rob Cross makes a sneaky solo appearance at The Pier before the band's comeback tour.
He will be showcasing some of the songs the band will be taking on tour while supporting the likes of The Enemy and Reverend and the Makers.
Again making a long-awaited comeback, Cleethorpes Pier is hosting Leon Blanchard's first solo gig. He is formerly of Brightlights and Venacava.

He will be giving us the chance to listen to some new material as well as some of the Brightlights and Venacava favourites.
He will shortly return to the studio – so look out for his tracks.
After returning to the local area from the bright lights of Manchester, Richard Dutton, of the recently re-formed The So And So's will be airing a blend of the bands loved tracks along with some new material to boot.
Richard, also live events manager at The Pier, said: "I want to put on something on a Saturday night which is a little bit different and showcases local musicians.
"It is showing the best local musicians around who have raw talent and original songs.
"I want to bring that community feel and in between the acts will be chilled out music.
"It will be really stripped back music at it's purest and there will be dimmed lighting."
Another exciting prospect performing live will be James Buxton also formerly of The Brightlights and Venacava.
He will be letting us have the chance to hear his most recent endeavour under his new alias of Longheart.
James will be playing his tracks which have already been getting noted and played on the local BBC Introducing radio.
After playing his first solo gig at The Pier's Session TV Sundays, Tom Humphreys of local band Kismet Ryding has been added to the bill under his new pseudonym of Tom Tree.
He will be taking a calmer approach with a tree-hugging element to his music. He will soon be releasing an EP.
In the stead of a great album and many other musical jaunts, you will have the pleasure to hear the subtle tones, and sheer passion of Samuel Simmons.
And after a mess around recording session with mates, Morris has had notable attention from the industry especially the introducing team.
Returning from his BBC master-class in London, Morris has new material and a new EP to present to us.
The Cleethorpes Pier Live event is free and will take place tomorrow at 7pm.
