Featured bands

Featured bands are those that have articles written mainly about them (although other bands might also be included on the same page.)

Bands that are feature in this magazine are those from Leicester or Leicestershire; occasionally, we also feature bands that have played in Leicester.  We would not feature a band that is not from the local area or that has never performed in the local area.
