HANKY PARK IN SKY TV BAND FINAL

Ace Salford band, Hanky Park, have reached the final of Sky 203's Be The Source - beating hundreds of bands nationwide. They're on Sky 203 at 9pm this Saturday, December 11th, and are up against six other bands, the winner being judged by the amount of public votes.

The Salford Star urges everyone in Salford to vote for Hanky Park in the final of Sky 203's Be The Source comp because not only are they an ace band that have toured four times with Peter Hook… And not only did they manage to get their anti-Glazer record played twice through the pa at Old Trafford on match days…They've also done loads in the community for our young people.

Hanky Park, fronted by former boxer, Shinny, have worked with the Amber Project at Whit Lane's Party in The Park and are still working down there. The band has even promised to give 10% of the Sky competition prize money to the Salford Foundation Trust which also helps our young people.

Salford's Shaun Ryder almost became king of the jungle, thanks to viewers' votes in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! The Salford START project won Granada's People's Millions last month, thanks to viewers' votes (see here). Now it's Hanky Park's turn to get the city behind them…

The band will appear in the Be The Source Final this Saturday, December 11th at 9pm on Sky 203 channel. After it's aired, viewers can vote for their favourites until 4pm on Wednesday 15th December.

The results show will be broadcast on Saturday 18th December with the winning act getting a recording session at the Kasbahn studios plus a prize of  £10,000, of which £1000 will be donated to the Salford Foundation Trust if Hanky Park win.

The voting line info will be available on Saturday, either at www.bethesource.tv/content/updates or online at www.salfordstar.com
 
Apparently Hanky Park are up against two Glasgow bands with really big followings so every vote is crucial.

Hanky Park are… Shinny (vocals), Paul Bonney (drums), Paul Cross (bass), Adam Birchall (lead guitar) and on keyboards Luke Hinton.

The Hanky Park anti-Glazer song, We'll Never Die, co-written with Peter Hook, was played through the Old Trafford pa at the last two Manchester United home matches. The video for the track, which features Terry Christan, Will Mellor and two times British Light Middleweight Champion and Commonwealth Champion, Jamie Moore, can be seen at www.hankypark.com
