After 8 years with the band, our bass player Maurizio will be leaving us and moving to pastures new. We all wish him well for the future as he has been a fantastic member of the band and we'll be sorry to see him go. Once we are able to start gigging again after the pandemic, our dep bass player Nick will be stepping up to replace Maurizio, with our other dep bass player Clive working with him to cover the gigs he is unable to attend.

The East Kent version of Vertigo that has been playing at pubs in this part of the county during 2019 and into early 2020, is now being renamed Vertigo Park to avoid any confusion with Vertigo. Vertigo Park, with Murray Phillips on vocals, will be launching on Facebook & Instagram under @vertigoparkband and any public gig details will now be appearing on these platforms. The band will be focussed on gigging in East Kent and will be available for parties, functions and weddings.
