MAD CAMRA BEER FESTIVAL: The Jar Family, The John Brewer Collective, Whiskey Bob Shaker / Acoustic, Blues, Folk, Live Music

Fri 8Aug
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


Since it’s the Beer Festival over this weekend and since we are The Fishpond, we thought it only appropriate that we provide you lovely people with some musical entertainment to go with all that fine beer you will be drinking. We have chosen six acts to perform over two days and, like the beers themselves, we believe you will find them very agreeable indeed.

The opening act is the inimitable Whiskey Bob Shaker. A unique and wholly entertaining solo artist, Whiskey Bob Shaker is a master of bar room blues, ballads and blistering loops. Influences include Tom Waits and Elvis Costello, but the style is very much his own. Chesterfield based and bringing over 20 years experience, Whiskey Bob works the crowd like a master and always leaves them feeling satisfied.

Next up, we have The John Brewer Collective. Performing with the ethos that people must be moving their feet at all times, The JBC will be eagerly serving you dollops of classic tunes in a funky reggae sauce.

Tailing off the first day of our Beer Festival is Hartlepool band The Jar Family is a collective of singer-songwriters Max Bianco, Dali, Al Devon, Richie Docherty, Chris Hooks and former Squeeze bassist Keith Wilkinson. Providing an escape from the backdrop of their hometown’s economic hardships, and driven by a collective will to succeed, The Jar Family have forged a distinctive style of north-east blues & roots, uniquely coined as ‘Industrial Folk’, which, following a series of sell-out acoustic shows, and the July 2010 release of their now highly collectable ‘Livingston Studio E.P.’, the band quickly built a loyal fan-base.
