Plans are now firmly underway for the Lights Out By Nine fundraising gig in a couple of weeks with special guests lined up to share the stage.

This is a joint venture between the Fife band and community radio station K107 - with the Fife Free Press on board as media partners.

It is hoped that the two special guests of X Factor 2014 contestant Emily Middlemas and David and Gavin from The David Latto Band will bring a diverse sound to the evening.

Dougie Hunter, bassist with Lights Out By Nine, said: “We are delighted with our special guests who should bring a real variety of styles and genres to the occasion.”

Dave Latto, born and raised in the Kingdom, won over music fans with his alternative country sound.

He already has a number of albums and EPs under his belt and a European tour with the legendary North Carolina musician Phil Lee.

The tour resulted in a mutual admiration between the two and a cover of Phil’s hit ‘We Cannot Be Friends Anymore’ features on the new EP by the band called ‘Here Today, Ghost Tomorrow’ released earlier this year.

With Dave’s beautifully written songs about love and loss music fans are in for a treat when he takes to the stage on November 21.

Dave said: “I was approached by Graeme Scott from the radio station to perform at the show and was happy to say yes.

“It will just be myself and Gavin Brady on vocals and guitars which is how a lot of our fans will remember us.

With just the two members on stage, fans can expect a stripped back version of the band’s music.

“It will be a more acoustic sound than usual,” Dave said.

“We will be playing songs from our recent EP and our 2012 album.

“Hopefully we will get a chance to play some new songs that we are working on and try them out on the audience and see what they think.”

Also added to the line-up on the night is the former X Factor contestant Emily 

The teenage singer from Paisley wowed both the crowds and the judges at this year’s talent show and will be bringing her own unique style to the event.

The gig is on Friday, November 21, from 7.30 p.m at the Duchess in Kirkcaldy.

Tickets are priced at £7 in advance or £10 on the door and can be obtained from the Fife Free Press 
Office or the venue.
