The Ley Hill Music and Beer Festival is back for its 11th year and a variety of bands will be playing outside the The Swan and The Crown pubs which are next door to each other in Ley Hill, just outside Chesham, over the Bank Holiday weekend.

On Saturday, the bands playing are: Robin Bibi Duo, who will be playing blues and rock on their guitars, five-piece rhythm and blues group The Shuffling Hungarians and Scandal.

The following day, you can expect blues and reggae musical artist Tim Hain, The Mojo Rising, who always get the crowd moving with their soul and disco covers, tribute band Oye Santa and on Monday Crystal Balls will close the festival.

It is the third year that Oye Santana will be performing at Ley Hill. The group was started in 2012 by Wycombe-born Milan Webb, who has been a Santana fan since he first heard Samba Pa Ti as a teenager.

The band is based in Wycombe but is also now enjoying a national reputation, as they recently starred at the Cambridge Rock Festival and played a sell-out gig in nearby Norden Farm, in Maidenhead. However, Milan believes there's always something special about playing in your local area and the group will be performing to thousands of people at their biggest gig to date at the Wycombe Swan in November.

At the Ley Hill Festival this weekend, Milan will be joined on stage by lead vocalist Héctor Gómez, originally from Madrid but now living in High Wycombe, Marlow-based Gez Kahan on the keyboards, along with another Wycombe native, Auriol Kobani, who will be singing and playing the trumpet and percussion. Pete Lockwood will also be on percussion.

Milan says: "We always enjoy playing at Ley Hill, as the crowd is always brilliant and I hope we get good weather this year, as last year it was really cold and damp.

"I wanted to create a Santana tribute band, as I the first thing that really appealed to me about Carlos Santana was his tone. As soon as I heard Samba Pa Ti I knew one day I'd love to be able to play like that.

The idea was hatched in a pub four years ago by me and Gez the keyboard player. It took the best part of a year to put the band together as we wanted to make it really unique and authentic and not just as a musical spectacle but also a visual spectacle."

The three-day event will start at 2pm and go on until 7.30pm and on Sunday the music will carry on inside both pubs from 8pm. The full range of musical fare on offer includes soul, rock, blues and reggae with music from the '60s up to the present day.
