The Marrs Bar, Worcester

About The Marrs Bar

One of Worcesters premier music venues. Live music at least four nights a week, usually more. Various promoters and club nights.
Musicians have designed the venue so bands really enjoy themselves when they play and as a result give a better performance. Formerly a dance studio since 1958 , the original sprung dance floors are still in place adding a woody texture to the sound quality of the room.

The Marrs Bar, Worcester
Time: 20:00 to 23:45
Cost: 4 in advance 5 on the door

Stuntdog return to the Marrs Bar for a night of unhinged frolicking around. Due to other commitments, Stuntdog will not be appearing at this year's Worcester Music Festival so tonight will see a full on performance for up to 4 hours just to make up for it. Songs are currently being written for their new album and some of these may make it onto the set list - depends on whether they can be bothered to rehearse them or not.

We are pleased to announce that the evening will be compared by local celebrity DJ Les Trunkwell. Fresh from a week residency at South Plimpton caravan park in Dorset, Les will be making sure the evening steers a safe and sound course with a couple of stops for Bingo, a raffle and some of his remarkable beatboxing. Don't miss it.

The Marrs Bar, Worcester
Time: 20:00 to 23:45
Cost:

6 in advance available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/283345 8 on the door

Founded in June 2008, and the world's only Dexys Midnight Runners Tribute band. This is not a couple of guys with midi files. This is a full blown, 10-piece HUGE sound, faithfully re-creating the halcyon days of all incarnations of Kevin Rowland's imagination, including a 3 piece horn section, banjo, accordion, organ, piano, guitar, bass, fiddle, and drums.
Once seen never forgotten, and a fistful of songs that will take you back to the days when you were Searching For the Young Soul Rebels, caught up in the intensity of The Projected Passion Revue, enjoying the Celtic mood, look and feel of Too-Rye Ay, and the lost treasure that was Don't Stand Me Down!!! Now for the caper.....
With the original Dexys back out on the road again, we have been in huge demand this year, all over the UK, including venues like the 100 Club, London.
We have our own Facebook page at www.facebook.com/dexysbootlegrunners if you would like to have a look.
To date we have supported Neville Staple, Pauline Black, The Beat, Secret Affair, From the Jam - featuring Bruce Foxton, and headlined our own shows, as well as a few Scooter and Northern Soul events.

Ex Carter USM man Les Carter's 'new' band Abdoujaparov have been touring worldwide for the past 12 years, making friends, breaking stuff and generally rockin' people's socks.
The band is named after disgraced professional cyclist Djamolidine Abdoujaparov. famous for running over a police officer on the Champs Elysees during the Tour De France and allegedly taking too many drugs.
Abdou have made 3 albums and numerous singles and EPs.
Our fourth album, Seaside Arcade Bingo Patrol is produced by Micky Strickson, who is quite frankly a bit of a genius. It was released in May 2014 to a fabulous reaction.
2014 is already shaping up to be a good year for us with festival season booking up quite nicely.

Skewwhiff have recently released their debut album on Wholehog recordings. Although it's been five years in the making, Skewwhiff are certainly not slackers. This female fronted four piece have played festivals and gigs extensively, honing the songs and the set in preparation 'for Nice Little Upper'.
Genre is always a poser when faced with such variety of sound, so the fact that Skewwhiff have not been out of place supporting bass legend Mike Watt's brand of jazz/punk and Brit-pop pioneers Dodgy, demonstrates the difficulty in pinning a pithy label to this bunch of misfits.
The majority of the album was recorded at Tower Studios with Dave Draper (Kerbdog, [spunge], Merrymouth) at the helm, with three tracks having been previously recorded with Nigel Clark, and is due to be released via The Whole Hog Recordings in April. The Whole Hog are also responsible for Slap Magazine (Supporting Local Artists and Performers), which further shows that Skewwhiff are fully ensconced in a thriving local music scene.
