Band’s Members First and Foremost

A FORMER Nuneaton college band is celebrating after reaching the top of an online music chart.

The Fores, who met while studying performing arts at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College, reached the number one spot in a chart organised by the north west-based DJ The Music Man.

Each week the DJ selects 100 bands and asks people to vote to create a chart.

The Fores stayed at the number one spot for two weeks beating major bands such as The Zutons and The Wombats in the process.

The band is made up of Guy Snowden on bass guitar and vocals, Tom Illiffe on lead guitar, Dexter Kingston on drums and Liam Hopkins on rhythm guitar and vocals.

Three of the band have now finished their courses at the college, but Dexter Kingston is still a student there.
