Friday night will be a sign of the times for The Signals when they mark the 30th anniversary of their first gig.

Falkirk’s 1980s sensations, Neil Sutherland, Bill Hay, Donald Campbell and Doug Grant, went their separate ways in 1999, but enjoyed a successful comeback in 2007 and have never looked back since with bandstand festivals, gigs and charity events aplenty.

The band will be playing Behind the Wall to celebrate the three decades since they struck that first live chord in the old Kinneil Bar in Bo’ness.

Bass man Donald said: “We were all teenagers back then.”

It will be an extra special gig for Donald who will be playing the special relay charity bass which he handed off to Status Quo’s John “Rhino” Edwards earlier this year. Donald is the first man to play the relay bass, which has also passed through the hands of Level 42 string slapper Mark King, on two occasions.

The Signals will turn back the clock to rock BTW from 9.30 p.m.
