Bob Dylan is Santa Claus Christmas Special!

@ The Lock Tavern
Thursday 29th December 2011

We are very excited to announce that 'Bob Dylan will be playing Santa Claus' so come along, sit on his knee and see what he’s got in his sack for you! 'Bob Dylan As Santa Claus' will also play a live set tonight.

Bonanza & Son has moved into its ninth year of presenting the best in Country, Blues, Americana and Roots Music and recently celebrated four years of ‘Countrier Than Thou' at the Lock Tavern.

Way back in the days when Country was still a dirty word round these parts and Americana was thought by some to be simply a typo’ error, not only having consistently sourced excellence in traditional Country, Bonanza has also discovered the most forward thinking Avant-Country, Punk-Blues, Americana and Roots with zero irony just good old quality music and very good times.

Bonanza & Son also broadcast a popular weekly radio show on Resonance 104.4FM (Every Monday evening 11pm-Midnight with repeats Sunday afternoons 1-2pm) as well as running numerous other club nights and dj sets in the Capital.

Live acts:

Bob Dylan As Santa Claus:
We are very excited to announce that 'Bob Dylan will be playing Santa Claus' so come along, sit on his knee and see what he’s got in his sack for you! 'Bob Dylan as Santa Claus' will also play a live set tonight.

The Hallelujah Trails:
Rising from the ashes of various Bonanza favourites including Norton Money, The Help and The Rejection these guys ’n’ gals will ensure that if you come gather round people wherever you roam then thee shall hear truly exquisite and authentic harmonies from these San Franciscan, Bay Area and English ‘cats’.

The Hallelujah Trails are named after one of Bonanza & Son’s favourite Comico-Westerns from 1965 in which a wagon train heads for Denver with a cargo of whisky for the miners. Chaos ensues as the Temperance League, the US cavalry, the miners and the local Native Americans all try to take control of the valuable cargo and with any luck the Lock Tavern will be host to similar shenanigans tonight especially if this band of Merry Pranksters has anything to do with it!

These guys n Gals have been attracting and delighting audiences wide and far with their laid-back as well as upbeat, psychedelic take on Country and Americana in addition to which there are now more Rock 'N' Roll-like interludes plus heart-lifting, cosmic-barnstorming and inspired Folk elements to their live performance.

Now fast proving themselves a sterling, class live act and rocking packed houses with their upbeat, West-Coast harmonies and tripped-out, bitter-sweet Post-Country lyrics...Expect them to raise the roof tonight and smash the barn doors wide-open and paint ‘em red on the way out!

+Dylan Walshe:
Multi-instrumentalist troubadour and Strummerville featured stompin' one man band harmoniser Dylan Walshe will entrance and entertain you with his captivating stories carried all the way from Dublin.

He has been likened to both Billy Childish and Mississippi John Hurt in equal measures or indeed any of the original Bluesmen like Leadbelly, Sonny Boy Williamson or Robert Johnson all melded together to give us something fresh in the vein of Steve Earle aboard a steamboat full of modern Sea Shanties and Celtic tales carried all the way from Dublin to London and back again.

We also think there's more than a touch of Nick Cave in there as well as Dylan’s namesake tucked in there too which is no bad thing.

+ More acts TBC

+ Bonanza & Son DJ set (ResonanceFM)
Radio Presenter, DJ & Club night promoters 'Daddy Bonanza' spins his latest acquisitions and Christmas Presents of Country, Blues & Americana vinyl curios.

+ Bonanza & Son will also be screening rare Westerns & Americana cinematic curios all night long including a special screening of Robert Downey SENIOR’S Acid Western ‘Greasers Palace' from 1972.
