The UK’s leading animal musicians, Manchester’s The Rockin’ Rhinos, are delighted to be bringing their particular brand of musical mayhem to Tim Peaks Diner – but what can the Diner expect? Well…Ok, right imagine that Frank Sidebottom is throwing a party, The Specials are in charge of the buffet, The Banana Splits have done the decorations, The Ramones are playing pin the tail on the donkey, and Spike Milligan is juggling jelly in the corner … we are that party and you’re all very welcome The Rhinos play proper rock gigs for kids, but that they can bring their grown ups to  – no bland patronising muzak here. John Cooper Cat, the feline frontman ( can you have a feline front man ?) leads the band through rocked up nursey rhymes ( Wheels On The Bus as if Deep Purple were playing it anyone?), inspired covers and their own heart-warming originals.
