Blackmore Vale Inn Gig

We had a great time with the very welcoming bar staff. A few issues with sound levels but sorted once we cranked it all up a notch.

Not many people in the pub, and yes I know it was chucking it down cats, dogs and vagrants but come on Marnhull, SUPPORT your local pubs. As the saying goes, use it or lose it.

Shonky are playing at the MBR

We are headlining on the Friday night at the Matt Black Rat on 24th September…..eeeeek!

We’ve learnt loads of new songs, all with huge cockup potential, but I reckon if everyone has enough liquid refreshment, (god given) no one will notice. lol lol lol

Full line up with Filthy Fil on the Thunderbox and the lovely Chesca on lead vocals. Should be a blinder, I can’t wait.

Gary and Mel’s Garden Gig

Lashed together at the last minute, our first gig with our new percussionist, Filthy Fil. We had a great time, and apart from a few fluffs here and there, it seemed to go down well. Fortunately everyone was too pissed to notice said fluffs. Happy daze. lol

Darran’s Birthday Bash

Was asked to do a gig for me ol muckah Darran at the Boundary Pub in Swindon. 

We had a riot with some fine Swindon folk, who gave us a warm welcome. Usual Les Dawson moments but luckily, everyone was too pissed to notice.

Landlady has booked us in proper for the end of November.

Can’t wait 😀

Little Jo’s 50th

In the middle of nowhere in deepest, darkest Wales. Should be a good un.

25 degrees in Wales! Scorching weekend, great views, company and food.

No sleep…..nope….nada

but we have been inspired by the recent event to compose a new work of art. 

And here it is……

The Rose & Crown

Bonkers night. Plug and Mr Trev turned up and proceeded to hurl much abuse, as expected. 

Everybody got pissed and a good time was had by all.

It seemed to go down well and we didn’t have to wear riot gear (bonus). Nobody seemed to notice the odd Les Dawson moments and I reckon we did alright.

Happy daze 🙂

Roll on the next gig.
