Be able to tell the grand kids you were there on 15th December….

Come down to Waterloo for a fantastic free night of live music at The Stage Door Pub, tucked behind The Old Vic Theatre. The final Saturday night of live music of 2012 at The Stage Door will have a stellar line-up, and I’m very lucky to be playing with two special acts:

Silver Sam
The king of the triple entendre, Sam will draw you in with poignant songs of penetrating insinuendo, close to the bone, yet closer to the heart than you might care to admit.
“Sings hilariously explicit songs ….he is a superstar.” Evening Standard
The Lancashire Hustlers
Brent and Ian fuse folk and soul in a way that will blow your mind – I know it sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it really does.
