We are very excited to make the first announcement of our live music line up for the Christmas Sessions at Portsmouth Guildhall. Headlining the Saturday afternoon session will be the magnificent Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs!
Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs are one of the most unique musical acts on the circuit today. Covering a wide range of music from genuine 1950’s skiffle such as Lonnie Donegan, through Led Zeppelin & The Doors, via Johnny Cash to modern classics such as Green Day, Motorhead and even The Pussycat Dolls, this band appeal to a wide range of ages & tastes.
Dressed as 1940’s Hobos with tattered suits and top hats, they could have stepped straight out of a railway yard full of steam engines in an old black & white movie. The basic core of three members named Hobo Jones (tea chest bass), Miser Bill (guitar) & Wino Tyrone (washboard, pots, pans & sink) is occasionally added to by a wild array of characters including a Reverend “Jailbird” O’Conner & a down & out spiv named Suitcase McGregor among others.
An absolute cracker of a band to have on the beer festival line up!
