SKATES and skittles will make way for music on Saturday, when a notorious grime artist and an X Factor contestant head the bill at a Barnstaple leisure complex.

Let's Go!, better known for its bowling, skating and sports facilities, will play host to Sneakbo – the up-and-coming rapper with a line in controversy and hits like The Wave and Ring A Ling – and Braunton lad Steve Ley, X Factor bootcamp-reacher and local music face.

But the evening will also see North Devon support from The Breaks Collective, the seven-piece who blend hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul and more to create a fresh sound; and local DJ Richy J, who will be mixing for MC Kamakarzie and Naza D.

Wendy Pullen, general manager at Let's Go!, is excited about the evening and the talent on show.

"We are transforming the skate rink to hold this live music event," she said.

"The main act is Top 40 chart act Sneakbo, and former X Factor contestant Steve Ley. It will be a fantastic night, with local support too. We plan to do more of these in the future, so watch this space."

As well as reaching the Top 40 with Zim Zimma and Ring A Ling, Sneakbo also featured on Oliver Twist by Nigerian singer-songwriter D'banj and has been highly praised by Canadian rapper Drake.

Steve Ley, who is a regular on the North Devon music scene, has often been seen performing in venues such as The Thatch in Croyde and The Aggi in Braunton.

As well as being on X Factor, he was an area finalist in Open Mic UK.

Last year, he again hit the screens in BBC Three's Tourettes: Let Me Entertain You with Reggie Yates.

Let's Go! Jam is at Let's Go!, Barnstaple on Saturday, September 7, 8pm (start 9pm). Tickets: £15. Box office: 01271 321123, www.letsgobarnstaple. co.uk. Sneakbo's latest single Trust No Body, from forthcoming EP Certified, can be seen on our website www.northdevon journal.co.uk/music.
