“The greatest thing to come out of Barnsley, since the A61 to Sheffield”
Jarvis Cocker

Hailing from Barnsley Rock City in t’North, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on a mission! Determined to follow in their father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive, they have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, ukulele, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboard and kazoo. To complete their squeaky-clean image, estranged brothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of knitwear.

The Bar-Steward Sons have, in their 11 year history played over 790 side-splitting shows and have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury.
They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “Tarnlife”, “The Lady In Greggs”, “Nandos”, “Fight For Your Pint”, “Bono Bloody Bono”, “Since You’ve Been Ron”, “She’s From Dodworth”, “Walking In Manpiss” and “If I Could Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.

They have also had the pleasure to collaborate with, support or play alongside many of the UK’s finest live acts from a wide range of genres, including:

The Levellers, Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy & Norma Waterson, The Darkness, Chas & Dave, The Wurzels, Focus, Mike Harding, The Blockheads, Roy Wood (The Move/Wizzard/ELO), Graham Oliver & Steve Dawson (Saxon), Heaven 17, Tony Christie, T’Pau, Simon Friend (Levellers), Maartin Allcock (Fairport Convention/Jethro Tull), Dreadzone, John Otway, 3 Daft Monkeys, Miles Hunt & Erica Nockalls (The Wonder Stuff), Carter USM, Lemar, Mark Chadwick (Levellers), Ben Ottewell (Gomez), Chumbawumba, Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets), Nizlopi, Dan Donnelly (The Wonder Stuff) & Jon Sevink (The Levellers), Peter Donegan, Merry Hell, Dave Burland, Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, The Danse Society, Gaz Brookfield, The Urban Voodoo Machine, The Sweet, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Hugh Whitaker & Ted Key (The Housemartins), The Sweet, Ferocious Dog, The Lancashire Hotpots… and even The Bay City Rollers!

The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican can’t wait to bring their shindig to The Fishpond and they promise that they WILL rock you… but gently!

“When you entertain the public, it’s no good just having good music or singing, you must also have entertainment value, so people will go home having a good time.”
Val Doonican

“I couldn’t fail to mention a gig by The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican that left even them speechless at the sheer size, volume and enthusiasm of the audience. The impact these boys have wherever they go is utterly phenomenal. I suspect the trees are still creaking now from the aftershock.”
