Dr Feelgood to headline Lunesdale Fest 2013!

Hot news just in, we have secured a booking for Dr Feelgood to play at Whittington Village Hall, Saturday 7th Dec 2013.  This is an amazing opportunity folks, the UK's premier R&B band, brimming with attitude, to play in our village hall in the Lune Valley.  It doesn't get better than that. Tickets to be released soon, meanwhile here is their biog (as if you needed to know):

Formed on Canvey Island in Essex in the early 1970s Dr. Feelgood remains
one of the most popular and exciting live rhythm and blues acts in the world.
The raw and uncompromising style of their performance resulted in the
album Stupidity that immediately went to the number one position in the
U.K. charts.

Dr. Feelgood have also enjoyed global success with a string of hit singles
including Roxette, Back in the Night, Milk and Alcohol, Down at the
Doctors, She Does it Right, Going Back Home and See You Later
Alligator - which gave the group their first gold record.

The last album to feature Lee Brilleaux - Down at the Doctors, was
recorded live at the Dr. Feelgood Music Bar on Canvey Island, (now the site
of the Oysterfleet Hotel) just two months before he died.

The current line up features the rhythm section Kevin Morris on drums
and Phil Mitchell on bass, both 29 years in the band and Steve Walwyn
on guitar who has been with the band for 23 years. Vocalist Robert Kane
(formerly of the Animals) is the most recent addition – joining in 1999.
Recent releases include a DVD - Live in London and CD Repeat
Prescription - a collection of some of the bands most enduring songs but
with a fresh approach.

Julien Temple’s film Oil City Confidential released on 2nd
 February 2010  tells the story of the bands formative years featuring the Wilko Johnson era.
May 2011 saw the digitally re – mastered re release of Chessmasters
originally released in 2000 on EMI Records … the band’s tribute to the
Chess label, home to many of the finest blues artists of the 20th
 century and  the first Dr Feelgood album to feature Robert on vocals.

The band continues to tour extensively throughout the World.
