Tops Ales for Tails would like to thank all of the bands for their generous support.

No Fly Zone

It used to be that the term ‘Cover Band’ was a dirty word, bringing to mind images of the zealously-bearded and tone-deaf, belting out dinosaur hits at the KEG & nobody to the tap of a lone foot (Mustang Sally, anyone?) But no more, thanks to NO FLY ZONE. Comprised of stalwart talent in the form of Stuart Senar, Andy Makins, Rob Stories & Roly Struckmeyer, NO FLY ZONE boast a rocking repertoire that includes all that is cool from The Chilli Peppers to Kings of Leon. Having graced local and international stages alike, with popular outfits such as Stealing Love Jones and the Pixie Bennet Band, NO FLY ZONE promise an exciting performance, not to mention a great party!
