Supernova were formed when the three members became disillusioned with the music they were playing in their respective bands and decided to start a new project covering only the songs they liked. Their individual tastes in music, some shared and others not ensure the set list is always varied with classic and contemporary rock songs from REM and Radiohead to Pearl Jam.
All three members have a wealth of musical experience having performed in a variety of different bands over the years including: The Furys, The Rattlers, Scarlet Days, Numb, Herbdaddy and many more. Al, Nige and Wildski are all local ‘lads’ and attended primary and secondary schools in Croxley Green. They have performed many times in Croxley including three appearances on the Croxley Revels music stage.
On stage: 12:40 – 13:10

‘In case of emergency – call the Jelly Fiends!’ This band has been around since the 1980s believe it or not. A fantastic, quirky, quintessentially English indie band, playing their own material, much loved by the Watford musical community! The JELLY FiENDS have been described as ‘Madness meets the Pistols’ and ‘Danni Minogue on Acid’ We’ll leave it for you to decide.
On stage: 15:35 – 16:10
A great young local band. Playing polished pop to a very high standard of musicianship. New, fresh and exciting, The Indegenerates are one of Hertfordshire’s most promising bands, producing pounding rhythms, edgy guitars and the kind of soaring, anthemic choruses that Fall Out Boy would be proud of. Their debut CD “Listen to This” looks like the first step on the road to success for the four-piece, and with an average age of just 17, the only way is up for this young band; when you combine that with their energetic live set, phenomenal work-rate and flat-out refusal to take no for an answer, you can’t help but think that The Indegenerates will soon have the world at their feet.
On stage: 16:25 – 17:00
Back by popular demand! With their unique sound Flutatious have been gaining interest from various parts of the industry but still enjoy the freedom of being truly independent; self produced, managed and promoted. They have had headline slots at Ecofest, Knockengorroch, Alchemy and Waveform festivals. It has been said that “Flutatious are one of the bands dragging folk/rock into the 21st century…”
On stage: 17:15 – 17:55
A superb classic Rockabilly band. They are a four piece from North London & Reading and have played Watford many times so are well known to rockabilly fans in the area.
The Daytonas have risen from the ashes of The Unknowns. 50s music has been in their blood for over 25 years, but they want to write new material based on the 50s idear of good time music. So come on down and shake it with The Daytonas.
On stage: 18:10 – 18:55

The Informers are a power trio from the Herts, Beds and Bucks area who play cherished favourites from the 70s & 80s – delivering powerpop, ska, rock, new romantic (oh yes!) and new wave & punk tunes with a passion!

A brilliant time guaranteed!
