Team Rock Radio.
The proceedings are opened by midlands Glam/punkers Teenage Casket Company.
Laney74 in particular has totally changed his look and is almost unrecognisable! He has not lost the knack of looking effortlessly cool though, and is now sporting a dirty greasy 1950's/early 60's rocker look along with a cool new retro-style bass courtesy of a new endorsment deal.
Teenage Casket Company do a great job of getting people going before the main awards ceremony kicks off.
After the first batch of awards is dished out Dedwardians hit the stage. Some people will recognise singer Paul Gautrey and guitarist Gaff from their previous band The Glitterati. This is a new and completely different band though, and far more rooted in 1950's rock 'n' roll.
Dedwardians have brought along a small but loyal ready-made fanbase from Paul and Gaff's previous band and already have something solid to build on.
More awards and handed out and then it's time for the final band of the evening.
Servers previously. No one has any idea what to expect, and to be honest when I see them appear on stage I'm not expecting much either. I'm already thinking of heading for home due to the venue's massively increased bar prices but decide to give the band a chance and stick around for their first song. I'm glad I did.
Oh yes, the awards! So who won what? Click here for the full list of winners at the 2014 Pure Rawk Awards.
