PRESS RELEASE: THE SIDEKICKS
Saturday October 27th 2007
EVERSHOT village hall
Doors open 8.00pm
£6 on door
THE SIDEKICKS are hoping to encourage anyone who loves a good band, and hates a plastic Halloween night, to get themselves up to Evershot Hall on Saturday the 27th October. Playing together as a 5 piece since 2001, the bands full-on sets have earned them a well-deserved reputation as a live act. Having a choice of 200+ songs, sets can include anything from Ian Dury to Toots and the Maytals, via Johnny Cash, or the Kinks to Stevie Wonder and the Who.
Always versions, never copies. SG ‘We’re not too hung up on trying to sound like the records, we stick close to the plot, but we want to make the music come alive, so if we lose it occasionally that’s us finding what we’re looking for… if you know what I mean.’
The line-up, fronted by West Dorset’s Sean Geraghty, features local music scene notables: Tom Hughes the Hammond Organ maestro from Weymouth’s psychedelic Rockers GOTHIC CHICKEN Dan Anderson a lead guitarist of sublime ability and frontman of Somerset’s R’n’B Legends MOTEL 6, Andy Hancock The top-drawer drums of Soul big-band DT8, and the rock-solid bass end of Laurie Higgins, who has sessioned and appeared with anyone worth playing with North of Portland Bill.
