Saturday October 27th 2007 EVERSHOT village hall
Doors open 8.00pm BAR £6 on door

THE SIDEKICKS are hoping to encourage anyone who loves a good band, and hates a plastic Halloween night, to get themselves up to Evershot Hall on Saturday the 27th October. Playing together as a 5 piece since 2001, the bands full-on sets have earned them a well-deserved reputation as a live act. Having a choice of 200+ songs, sets can include anything from Ian Dury to Toots and the Maytals, via Johnny Cash, or the Kinks to Stevie Wonder and the Who.

Always versions, never copies. SG ‘We’re not too hung up on trying to sound like the records, we stick close to the plot, but we want to make the music come alive, so if we lose it occasionally that’s us finding what we’re looking for… if you know what I mean.’

The line-up, fronted by West Dorset’s Sean Geraghty, features local music scene notables: Tom Hughes the Hammond Organ maestro from Weymouth’s psychedelic Rockers GOTHIC CHICKEN Dan Anderson a lead guitarist of sublime ability and frontman of Somerset’s R’n’B Legends MOTEL 6, Andy Hancock The top-drawer drums of Soul big-band DT8, and the rock-solid bass end of Laurie Higgins, who has sessioned and appeared with anyone worth playing with North of Portland Bill.

BEN WATERS Friday, Oct 5th, 2007

Friday October 5th 2007 EVERSHOT village hall
Doors open 8.00pm BAR £10 on door

One of the UK's finest pianists, and humorous performers, Ben Waters takes time off from his big band project, to make a welcome return to smaller venues. This is the man who barely in his early 20's played with the likes of Mick Jagger; Pete Townsend; Shakin' Stevens and the late Florida blues harp legend Rock Bottom! Ben mixes Boogie woogie, blues with a Dr John style New Orleans feel, and some good old time rock & roll. Come early cos Ben packs them in!



A massive thank you to Ben and the Band for a classic night out in the Village Hall!!
