“Skeleton Crew have returned to the Sal after a year long absence, sounding and looking a tad different, with not one but two new members in the band the five piece power rockers from the East Midlands are not waiting for an alibi that’s for sure. The Crew have beefed up their act and having heaved too and weighed anchor they’re about to take to the stage here at Ye Olde Salutation Inn on Maid Marion Way smack bang in the middle of Robin Hood country.”
Please welcome our new guitarist , Mr Jon Hillman.
Jon, from Walesby, was, by a mile, the one who fitted the band best, both musically and personally… in other words , he’s just as daft as we are!
Having spent many years in the realm of covers Jon was keen to find a band that did it’s own material and , as luck would have it, he came across our ad.
As you might know, we are going to launch this new version of the SCrew in Worksop at The Frog and Nightgown on Saturday December 21st 2013
We have also started writing new material for the band and that should start to appear in the set in the new year.
We cannot wait to bring you the new band and we know you’ll love it too so Bring It On!!!

On 27th April 2013 at The Castlegate, Grantham, Skeleton Crew played our first gig with Rick Townhill as our new frontman! After a mere 6 weeks in the role, clearly we were ready to rock! All photos by Marie Barker
Hey folks … our search for a new vocalist is over! Following quite a few rounds of auditions and getting to hear some amazing talent, we’re delighted to introduce Rick Townhill as our new vocalist! Rick has been a friend of ours for a very long time and has sung with us when we’ve done the Karaoke nights in both Grantham and Nottingham, as well as fronting Grantham-based covers bands Dynamite Billy and Izengard.
Originally from Lincoln, Rick was the singer in Jacknife in the early 90s and , for roughly 19 hours, Mutiny – the band that Graham and Rob cut their teeth in (but more of that in a bit). Continue reading
