Leadmill Live Stream: George Waite (The Crookes)

George Waite from the much missed Sheffield band The Crookes played a very special set right for Leadmill Live Streams on Facebook on Friday 8 May. It marked the first time George played The Crookes tunes since they played their emotional farewell show at The Leadmill back in 2017. Watch it below.

This gig and others in the series are in aid of #SaveOurVenues, a national initiative launched by the Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. If you have a few quid spare, please support the Leadmill through its #SaveOurVenues Crowdfunder – donate online.
