The Peas
Playing at the Queens Head on Saturday 17th August 9pm onwards

“The Peas are the masters at taking your guilty pop pleasures from the 80s and 90s and giving them a classy reworking. From Rick Astley to The ‪Spice Girls‬ they have a set list that could make some people shudder but with a change of chords and a bluegrassy rock n rolling acoustic disco beat, the songs feel like new.  Musically intelligent, high tempo, whirling energy, they appeal to the watchers as well as the dancers.   Acoustic Guitar, Double bass, Foot Drums, Kazoos, beatboxing, mouth trumpets, super sweet harmonies and only two people.  You will come away not too sure what you have witnessed but feeling all the better for it.”
