Devon Air Ambulance's free afternoon of live entertainment at the Den, Teignmouth

Devon Air Ambulance’s annual Motorcycle Ride Out is returning to the Den, Teignmouth, on Sunday 9th July 2017 with an afternoon of live entertainment from 1pm. This event is free for all to attend in support of Devon Air Ambulance (DAA).

DAA have a great line up of local bands including Littermouth, Five Finger Discount, Thick as Thieves and The Rock Section, with tech provided by Big Bear Recordings.

DAA are encouraging all friends and families of the riders, as well as locals and holiday-makers, to come along and enjoy this free afternoon. The first sets of riders are due to arrive from 1pm.

In addition to the live music there will be trade stands and refreshments, including Black Tor Brewery’s Down Draught, brewed in celebration of DAA’s 25th year of service, and a bouncy castle for the kids.

Littermouth, performing original self-penned material covering a broad range of up-tempo rock genres from classic & funky to indie & art; think Led Zep, Chili Peppers and Muse, will be opening the event at 1pm.

Five Finger Discount will be returning to perform for their third year at the Ride Out. An up-beat three piece, they combine their many shared and varied influences, including hip-hop, ska, drum n bass, folk and reggae to create their own harmonious blend of lyrical hip-pop and will be performing from 2pm.

Thick as Thieves, also regular performers at the Ride Out, will be on at 3pm performing your favourite upbeat pop anthems from the 60’s onwards.

The Rock Section pack a large and tightly arranged saxophone section into a small band, backed by a solid rock-guitar and vocals, in effect a five-piece rock orchestra, will perform at 4pm covering a range from progressive to punk. They will be wrapping up the event at 5pm. Band member Brian Cooper added “We are delighted to support Devon Air Ambulance at this year’s Motorcycle Ride Out and to play our part in making the day a great success”.

Fundraising Director Caroline Creer said “Our annual Ride Out is always a popular event and the afternoon is a great family outing. We are extremely appreciative to the bands who help to make it a brilliant afternoon and we look forward to seeing lots of supporters enjoying the free entertainment.”

The Ride Out, sponsored by Bridge Motorcycles, will start from Trago Mills, Newton Abbot, and will follow an 80 mile marshalled route to the Den. It’s only £5 for riders to enter and all pre-registered entrants will receive a free limited edition Ride Out t-shirt. Online registration will close at 4pm on the 6th July 2017.
