Peterborough band Kissmet are one step away from appearing on a BBC Two grand final to find the UK’s best part-time band.

Band members Ron, Buzz and Max Singh, Lucas Parlato, Alex Kane and Lloyd Davies feature on BBC Four tonight at 9pm, where they compete against four other bands to try and make it through to the final.

The show is hosted by comedian Rhod Gilbert, and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook helps choose the final competitors.

Kissmet, which has played Glastonbury six times, play Bhangra music, a mix of traditional Punjabi folk dance music and Western rock.

Ron, of Lincoln Road, Werrington said: “It’s brilliant, a chance for people to reconnect with what the band are doing. You can spent 10 years on the road and get more exposure in 10 minutes on TV.

“It was a lot of fun and we got to meet some brilliant bands.

“Peter was a good guy and Rhod was quite up for a laugh.”
