Dave McPherson arrived at Nottingham’s Bodega on Wednesday to perform the first show of a short stint on the road with his new band, Dave McPherson and Friends.

Best known as the frontman of InMe, voted Best British Band at the Kerrang! Awards in 2003, the 34-year-old metal icon, turned acoustic singer/songwriter decided to take his music, adored by loyal fans, across the country with three exclusive dates in Nottingham, Bristol and London.

Although the audience at Bodega was modest, there was not a word of the Essex musician’s catalogue missed.

Dave McPherson has performed in every Nottingham venue of note. He includes among his most memorable moments of some 30 shows across this past decade performing at a sold out Rock City with American rockers, Alien Ant Farm.

Dave is planning a new album release this year and will surely return to Nottingham very soon.
