That Eighties Band a success despite gear theft
A Haverhill band had a successful gig in Haverhill Arts Centre despite having had equipment stolen earlier in the year.
That Eighties Band performed on Saturday, May 2. On January 11, the band’s rehearsal space and drum school in Homefield Road was broken into. Thieves made off with about £2,000 worth of music equipment, including the band’s PA system and a CD player. “It went alright,” said Bob Spinks, bass player with That Eighties Band and owner of the unit that was broken into. “Everybody enjoyed it and we had them all up and dancing.
“We hired in a PA system, which we would normally do for bigger shows anyway.”
Efforts to locate the missing equipment have so-far been unsuccessful, despite the band offering free tickets to the gig and a meal out for two as a reward for information.
“The offer of a meal still stands,” added Mr Spinks. “We live in hope they’ll find something;.”
Anyone with any information should call Haverhill police on 101, quoting crime reference HH/15/83.
