A TRIBUTE to Michael Jasckon will be the finale of White Men Can’t Funk’s most ambitious stage show to date.

The band, heralded as heroes on Rugby’s music scene for their daft, funked-up pop and rock covers, have been locked away for months working on a Michael Jackson tribute special. And on Saturday night in Vault the band will unleash their ambitious stage show, which features three sets, one acoustic, one standard, and an hour of Michael Jackson.

Guitarist Andy Walker said: “We’ve worked our socks off to get this together.

“The production is really ambitious with the lighting and stage show. We’ve got in backing singers, extra keys and an extravagant special surprise for the Michael Jackson finale.”

White men Can’t Funk made a name for themselves playing at some of the town’s biggest events over the past year, including the Rokeby Lions’ firework display at Ken Marriott Leisure Centre, the Christmas Lights switch-on and Rugby Music Festival. Vault will open its doors on Saturday at 8pm. To find out more, search for Vault Rugby on Facebook.
