A POPULAR duo from Grays plan to hold the first “supergig” of 2014 at the Crooked Billet in Stanford-le-Hope.

Filthy Gorgeous, formed of vocalist Alana Connor and guitarist Michael Fredericks are bringing together a number of bands for the event.

The most recent bash Alana and Michael held at the Crooked Billet pub in Stanford-le-Hope was on December 28, when various youngsters, including Luke Britnall.

But the “supergig”, which starts at 12pm on Saturday, January 18, will see performances from some of Essex’s best musicians and singers.

It is being billed as an opportunity for local pub owners to see what talent is available for them to book.

Filthy Gorgeous and another Thurrock favourite, Danny White, will perform on the day.

Alana said on Facebook: “It will be a brilliant day of fun and music mayhem.”
