The Starving Rascals are a five piece, versatile and highly-talented band playing a wide range and variety of great music to please and satisfy the tastes of even the most discerning punter.
Originally formed more than twenty years ago, there have been numerous changes to the band line-up, the most recent being the change to our lead guitarist with the introduction of Brian Tatler. Over these years the band has developed into, and established its reputation as one of the best bands in the area.
The Rascals’ repertoire ranges from hard-hitting classic rock music to 50’s swing, soul, funk and more contemporary songs. All are performed to a very high standard, with great feeling, passion and a good helping of a’ la Rascals’ magic. One of the main criteria for including any song in the set list is:- “Can you dance to it?” This alone, has helped to make the Starving Rascals a truly great “Party Band”.
With all five members of the band able to sing, one of the great strengths of the Rascals is their ability to create a full and harmonious vocal sound, which is often lacking with live bands.
If it’s great music and atmosphere you crave, if you want to dance all night or just tap your feet to the beat, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better band than The Starving Rascals.
Date – Saturday 23rd May 2015
Time – 8pm
Tickets – £4 per person

A quick reminder that registration evening and the first outdoor youth training session takes place this evening (Friday 10th April) from 6pm. Any junior players wishing to play hardball cricket this season should attend these sessions.
Monday night cricket for beginners and our younger members playing softball cricket will start on Monday 13th April at 6pm.
We are asking for donations of used kit that children may have outgrown that can be re used and sold on at a small price to other youth members to raise money for youth cricket at both sessions.

Halesowen Cricket Club will step up to the oche when they host a special event with top Darts celebrity Wayne Mardle on Wednesday April 29.
Mardle, a former World Championship semi-finalist and now a Sky Sports pundit, will appear at the Seth Somers Park venue in what promises to be an entertaining night for Cricket and Darts fans, members and players alike. Mardle is widely regarded as one of the best exhibition players around.
Tickets are now on sale for the event, which also features Mardle’s Sky Sports colleague Nigel Pearson who will host the evening.
And there’s a chance to play Mardle with a raffle on the night to stand alongside ‘Hawaii 501’ on the oche – as well as a question and answer session.
Said Mardle: “I’m really looking forward to the event and I always have fun on the exhibition circuit.
“It’s always fun meeting members of the public and playing against them, so I can’t wait to meet the Halesowen people and West Midlands Darts fans in general.”
There will also be an auction of sporting memorabilia on the night with a donation made to the club.
Fans wishing to secure their seat – numbers are limited – should contact the club on 0121 550 2744, or contact a Halesowen CC official. Alternatively tickets can be ordered online at sportstalkevents.co.uk in the box office section.

This week martin has decided to treat us to a video rather than some words. It appears this teaching malarky is easier than we thought. Especially if he has the time to produce this masterpiece. It left us speechless when we saw it, especially the grammar (remember, he’s a teacher!) we’ll let you decide…
