Grand Slam

About Grand Slam

Back in the post-Lizzy days, Laurence Archer wrote and performed with Phil Lynott. Grand Slam was cut short in it’s prime, leaving a hole in the fabric of rock music. Laurence has nurtured a long-term plan to rebuild the Grand Slam machine, and here it is, blue printed and ready to race.

This new band (Laurence along with compadres Mike Dyer, Benjy Reid and Dave Boyce), honours the traditions of rock and Laurence’s song writing dynasty, but also looks to the future – the classic tracks sit alongside a set of brand spanking new rock anthems that embody the same ethos of freedom, positivity and adrenalin that ran through Grand Slam in 1984.

With this pedigree, it is no surprise that this band is a live monster, ready and raring to ransack stages around the world.

To top it all, new album Hit the Ground was released on Marshall Records on November 22nd 2019.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Grand Slam are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
