THE ESKIES (live at the CC Smugglers after show party)
Live at 11pm in Holy Moly’s at Esquires, Bedford – free admission!
Saturday 5th March 2016
With a full house expected for the homecoming of the mighty ‘CC Smugglers’ and wanting to continue the party into the night we are hosting a free after show event in Holy Moly’s nightclub downstairs at Esquires with a very special live guest and the DJ talents of Esquires legend Pete Burridge and guests.
Our very special guests for the event are THE ESKIES hail from Dublin Ireland where they regularly sell out venues around the country.
Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected individuals joined forces in what was to be their own celebration of folk noir/gypsy, jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle to ballrooms and booze houses far and wide.
Admission is free to all gig goers, all vistors to the venue and anyone who is just popping by for the first of a limited series of live at 11pm
Doors open at 10.30pm with The Eskies hitting the stage at 11pm, remember it’s free, spread the word!
“Like a wagon storming the citadel, The Eskies’ brand of gothic-tinged gypsy-folk swaggers out of the speakers with intent.” – Hot Press Magazine
“From the sinister sway of ‘Eloise’ through to the jaunty ‘Jesus Don’t Save Me’ and the driving ‘Jailhouse Sun’, The Eskies have delivered a fascinating blend of fun-fuelled folk.” – The Independent
“The album is a raucous fanfare of folk, swamp blues and unquenchable merriment, paired with brain-burrowing melodies and witty lyrics, delivered at breakneck speed.” – Goldenplec
“Indeed, the album exudes a vim and visor that bursts from out of the speakers…makes for an incredibly entertaining experience.” – The Last Mixed Tape
