On Saturday there is music (donations welcome) in the garden on the 'Little Rig Stage' from 1pm - 6.30pm. CJ is providing a whole host of local musicians for your enjoyment as well as some of her other projects. Paul Carbuncle will be making a welcome return as will Gypskazz. We also have a Hog Roast and BBQ, this is a really lovely family event.
Saturday Evening it's back upstairs for some more great music. Doors open 7.30pm. (we'll be serving a Snack Menu from 6 til 9pm in the bar)
First on we have local heroes BLACK PIG. Sid and the boys play an awesome set of obscure covers in a style that'll blow the bloody doors off!! Agri Rock and Tractor Pop!!!
Next comes 'Spencer Wade and The Ska Experience'. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Spencer is a huge figure in the UK SKA scene, having played with Bad Manners and Madness and recognized as one of the best Sax players within the genre, The Ska Experience is a mix of top class musicians including Dexy's Keyboard player Pete Saunders and Big Boy Tomato's Ditch Sheldrake on guitar. Guaranteed to be a set of top class SKA. Get Rocksteady and ready to Skank.
Finally, after an absence of 5 years, we've managed to get them back, ladies & gentlemen, I give you; THE WITCHDOKTORS (with a f*cking K).
The Witchdoktors are legends, almost. Formed in 1986 they have long established themselves as one of the UK’s greatest ever Garage Punk bands. A 5 Year residency at Soho’s 12 Bar Club in London and hundreds of live performances across the country and overseas has seen them rise from underground villains of rock'n'roll to legitimate hoodlums of guitar fuelled chaos! They have shared the stage with many of their own heroes (and influences) such as The Ramones, The Damned, The Cramps, Fleshtones, Revillos, Urban Voodoo Machine, Legendary Shack Shakers, The Germs, Wreckless Eric and many others.
We're so excited!!!!
