Two journeymen from New York's East Village mixing tales of the Rock and Roll life with songs that are loved by millions. Chris Barron's band, The Spin Doctors, were ubiquitous in the early nineties and everyone owned their album Pocketful of Kryptonite. Barron has a Grammy nomination, a Rolling Stone cover, two multi-platinum albums and two Top Ten hits, Little Miss Can't Be Wrong and Two Princes! This is Barron's first solo tour of the UK playing his hits with The Spin Doctors as well as breaking out exciting new material. Lach has six critically acclaimed albums ("Splendid, best of its kind!"-Mojo), a newly published book of poetry ("Outstandingly beautiful." - stirlingwriter.com) and a hit BBC Radio 4 comedy series 'The Lach Chronicles' (Top Radio Pick Hit from The Times, Observer, Independent, Daily Mail, Telegraph and RadioTimes!). "A Lach show is a face-ache funny, beat-punk-unplugged joy, and likely to send you home with several favourite new songs"- The Guardian UKTickets Save
