Before the match kicks off at Coventry Bears v Bradford Bulls we have a real treat in store for Home and travelling fans alike where a selection of fantastic local musicians kicking off the day!

The big name on the bill is singer-songwriter Alex Norman, who has played all over the world, has racked up thousands of views of his videos online and is currently working on his new album.

Alex is also no stranger to the Bears; in many ways, he grew up around the club. Alex’s dad Chris was one of the key players in setting up the Bears 20 years ago, and a young Alex was often found earning his keep as ballboy, kicking rugby balls around the field after matches and generally supporting the team home and away.

Although his attention on 30 June will be focused on rugby league, Alex has recently released an unofficial England song for this summer’s World Cup campaign - you can hear that, and more of his music, here: Facebook page.

Joining Alex Norman on the Battle of the Beasts bill is duo Brains For Breakfast, who will travelling from the Black Country equipped with guitar, ukulele, bass and vocals too.

The two-piece love taking the opportunity to sing songs about good times and make sweet sounds to the world and promise to be the perfect soundtrack to accompany the craft beers and food that will be on sale pitch side.

And the music doesn’t stop there! Fans at the Butts Park Arena will also be treated to the sounds of singer-guitarist Chrissie Duxson and colourful duo WAVE, whose guitars and vocals are provided by none other than Dave Musson, co-host of the Bear Necessities podcast.



From Chrissie, expect stunning vocals, intricate guitar playing and probably a cover or two of a grunge classic. As for WAVE, expect the unexpected - they’re normally found in much louder settings but also enjoy an acoustic session when the opportunity arises. Find them on Facebook.
