VERA’S GIN CLUB – No. 40 – “Oh Come Let Us Adore Gin” (Gin & Jamas)

Up at The North Pole, Santa’s Little Helpers are working hard to make little Christmas dreams come true. Meanwhile, South of the Arctic Circle, all Vera’s pals are making gin. Hoorah! 

So Come, All Ye Faithful, to the final Vera’s Gin Club Of 2018 – the annual legend that is “Gin & Jamas”. Christmas onesies, nasty nightshirts, lashings of festively themed gin, and heated debating of *best Christmas song*, Vera’s Gin & Jamas special is not to be missed. This year’s party will be hosted upsatirs in The Rhee Gallery so tickets are strictly limited. Sleepover anyone? As always, five gins to sample, Vera’s Nibbles, perfectly designed to accompany the gins, and a G&T of your favourite from the evening to finish. Click here to buy your ticket. See you there…

N.B. Due to increasing costs, we regrettably now need to add booking fees to the cost of your ticket. However, to help with the transition (and it is Christmas after all!) we have reduced the base cost of this month’s ticket by £1.

LIVE MUSIC – “DodoBones”

“We play songs. Some are ours. Some are other peoples”.

Finally, we’ve managed to arrange the return of DodoBones – back at The Plough Shepreth for the first time this year, bringing their unique mix of originals and own-style pastiche pop covers to The Mandolin Stage. DodoBones hatched in early 2009 and since then they’ve been attracting attention with raw and heartfelt lyrics, seducing vocals that coarse and delicately line the pulsing and gritty sound of acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion. Although they are now renowned for their combination of natural acoustic instruments and powerhouse performances of original songs, they have also attracted attention with their ironic pop, pastiche style when interpreting other people’s well-known numbers. DodoBones are: Robbyn Snow on lead vocals, Stephen Patmore on guitar and spoken word, Ian Newman on double bass, and Mark Gordon on percussion.
