The Everly Pregnant Brothers @ Devil's Arse
Sheffield’s favourite ukulele toting, Hendo’s swigging, pie adoring seven piece are back with a gre’t big bang. After selling out The Lyceum and Leadmill respectively, the fellas have decided to do something a bit different with their next outing which will be staged amidst the stunning backdrop of Devil’s Arse in Castleton – A big ol’ cave for those of you scratching your heads.
Expect covers of some classics, albeit with a Yorkshire slant. So instead of Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman, No Cry’ you will be treated to a heart wrenching account about a man, his pie and a faulty kitchen appliance resulting in ‘No Oven, No Pie’. Or if you’re more of a Coldplay buff, then bask in a faultless rendition of ‘Yellow’ twisted to give a nod to Yorkshire’s favourite saucy export ‘Hendos’. Other highlights include a delivery of Sheffield anthem ‘Common People’ – “She came from Dore, She had a thirst for knowledge. She studied art at Shirecliffe College” – Just raises the hairs all o’r body dunnit?
The band is a ragtag bunch, consisting of renowned Sheffield artist Pete Mckee and his son Charlie, Radio Sheffield host Toby Foster also lends his ukulele talents to accompany Shaun Doane’s vocals. Co-founder Richard Bailey also makes up the team alongside Ginger Dave and Klive Humberstone from Sheffield band “In the Nursery”.
It will make you laugh, it might even make you cry, it will certainly make you sing along enthusiastically and glow with unabashed Yorkshire pride. Get down and support South Yorkshire Music at its finest!
