The Eskies + guests + Disorderville
8pm, Friday 13th October, Bedford Esquires
Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected cast asides joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of commonality.
Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral march-esque lament to weep along Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.
The Eskies have brought this unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of get togethers and social occasions wherever they have ventured.
No strangers to Bedford this will be their third visit to Esquires having had a couple of great shows in Holy Moly’s in the past over the couple of years, this time they move up a gear and headline the main stage. The band can also be seen locally this summer at Twinwoods Festival in Clapham
Their debut album ‘After the Sherry Went Round’ is in shops now and is also available for download from iTunes.
Support comes from AnarchoHillbilly band Disorderville making their debut at Bedford Esquires who’s influences are everything from cash to crass and beyond with a further support to be added.
Tickets are on sale now priced £10 advance from Seetickets and can be picked up locally from the outlets of Esquires Bar, Planet Boutique & Mario’s Hair Design
