Friday Night Session – Bog Rolling Stones

Realising that it is impossible to take one’s self seriously whilst prancing about on stage in a wig and stripy trousers, the band’s attitude revolves around high energy, no holds barred entertainment. (Not to mention shouting “Yeaaaaaaahhhhhhh, baaayyyyybeeeee!” at every opportunity).  Band members slip in and out of character at opportune moments and wigs have been known to fly across the room.  Then, just when you think it’s simply theatre, Keef’s ice pick guitar strikes a nerve, the rhythm section plugs in and the music reaches up, grabs Mick by the ankle and pulls him under!

Despite all the larking about the band has earned a reputation as one of the most authentic sounding tribute acts around, tackling the more challenging songs with great enthusiasm.  The Bog Rolling Stones are now one of the most popular, sought after live bands in the area.  Of course, it’s only Rock ‘n’ Roll…….but a lot of people seem to like it, like it, yes they do!!! Mick Slacker & Co’s tounge in cheek tribute act just gets better and better and we’re very pleased to have them headlining our Friday night session.

Their tongue in cheek humour, wigs, stripy trousers and boundless energy make them an act not to be missed. The question is… will you let your daughter go?
