After a fantastic sell out earlier this year, Doctor Feelgood are back on December 6th 2014. Book early!
Dr Feelgood are a British pub rock band formed in 1971. The band's name derives from a slang term for heroin or for a doctor who is willing to overprescribe drugs. It is also a reference to a 1962 record by the American blues pianist and singer Willie Perryman (also known as "Piano Red") called "Dr. Feel-Good", which Perryman recorded under the name of Dr. Feelgood & The Interns. The song was covered by several British beat groups in the 1960s, including Johnny Kidd & The Pirates.

The famous Los Pacaminos are coming to the club on 15th March 2014. Book early to secure your tickets.
Originally formed as an opportunity to play their shared passion of the Border, Tex-Mex and Americana music that the members of the band love, they started as a practice band playing when other musical commitments allowed top musicians just playing for fun. Word got around as word does and soon the band started playing gigs.
At least one member of this highly respected group will be very familiar. Los Pacaminos is fronted by one of the UK's finest and best loved vocalists - Paul Young.
However, Paul is not the only luminary in this seven piece band. Some of the best musicians in the business have teamed up to present an incendiary mix of classics and original material.
