The Gutter Brothers / Live Music

Fri 15Nov
8:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


The band once described by Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson as ‘The loudest skiffle band in history’ are back!

The Gutter Brothers are best known in the UK for the soundtrack they provided for the Fools and Horses 1991 Christmas Special, ‘Miami Twice’ which included their unique cover of the Lovin’ Spoonful’s ‘Summer in the City’.

A Gutter Brothers gig is a joyous occasion – the infectious energy and enthusiasm of the band is guaranteed to get feet moving. Larger than life front man Tony Green with his whiskey-fags-and-gravel New Orleans drawl adds a swampy southern feel to the genre hopping style of the material, from rock to funk to country to blues
to ska, vividly animating the slice of life lyrics in every song. The Gutter Brothers were the first band to play live on MTV Europe in 1988 and toured the UK, Europe and the USA between 1988 and 1993 alongside bands such as Blondie, Jools Holland, Dr Feelgood, Steve Harley, Blue Rodeo, The Neville Brothers, Flowered Up and many more, gaining them cult status and a large and devoted fan base.
