Friday Bands 6.30pm – 10.30pm
The Bronsons 9.30 to 10.30pm
The Bronsons are a London- and Oxfordshire-based high-energy garage rock rhythm and blues band playing a 50/50 mix of original material and obscure covers. Their influences range from 60's beat, rhythm and blues and garage rock bands, through to Dr Feelgood, Eddie & the Hot Rods, The Count Bishops, The Inmates and Lew Lewis.
The band had a cult following in 1980s London, playing Le Beat Route, The Embassy Club and the legendary squatters' nightclub in Bonnington Square. After splitting in 1985 they reformed in 2013, recruiting a new bass player and new Bronsonettes. Since then a series of pub dates and festival appearances have cemented their reputation as a seriously good live act that knows how to put on a show.
