Toploader looking forward to heading to Moray for the first time

Moray locals will be dancing in the moonlight as a top indie music band is heading to Lossiemouth for the first time ever.

Toploader is coming to the coastal town to headline a bill at Lossiemouth Town Hall alongside some of the region’s most highly rated musical acts.

Best known for their smash hit song, Dancing in the Moonlight, they have been a staple of the British alternative music scene since 1997.

Lead singer Joseph Washbourn is looking forward to heading up to the north-east of Scotland for the first time.

He said: “We can’t wait. It’s one of the first shows of the year for us so will be great to be back on stage and play the tunes again.We’ll be busy over the summer doing festivals and it’s great to start off with a corker early on.

They’ll be dancing in the moonlight at Lossiemouth Town Hall

“These days we always make a point of seeing the area we’re performing in. Maybe something to do with age but we’re always stopping off at some old ruined castle or church on the road these days.

“We made it up as far as Aviemore for a show a few years back but never as far north so it’s going to be a fresh experience for us. We’ve heard Lossiemouth is the jewel of Moray with some beautiful beaches so really looking forward to playing there.

“We’ve also heard the ice cream at Miele’s is the best around so will be stopping by for a cheeky cone or two.”

They will be performing alongside the likes of The Roov, Gordon James and the Power, Edgar Road and William Freeman at the show at Lossiemouth Town Hall on Saturday.

Mr Washbourn is also excited to hear some of the highly rated local bands who are supporting them.

The event is the first in Moray held by promoter Andy MacDonald, who is from Lossiemouth originally.

He said: “Always great to hear the local talent and making great sounding music is something that is much more achievable and accessible these days than it used to be when we began performing.

“From what we’ve heard from Andy McDonald the bar seems really high in the north-east of Scotland so can’t wait to hear the other artists.”

Mr MacDonald insists that Toploader are just “the first of many” big acts coming to the coastal town.
