Bonanza & son week ahead including Halloween party

Howdy Folks,
We hope this update finds you very well and fully storm resistant...

We have another packed Bonanza & Son week ahead with lots of goodies for you including our Halloween Countrier Than Thou Party on Thursday at The Lock Tavern which includes prizes for the best dressed, dead Country/Rock star (full details below).

•First up tonight, Monday 28th October, it is time once again to drink from The Country Well @ Nambucca.
We have a refreshing, freshly drawn line-up but unfortunately Boss Caine got caught up in the freak weather conditions and were unable to travel south today but we’ll be sure to rebook them soon...

The Icons Of Elegance:
Surreal David Lynchian Country & Americana from the furthest reaches of Scandinavia, The Baltics, The Nordics and the European mainland, France and beyond.

John E Vistic
Bristolian Rock ’n' Roller John E Vistic takes time out from the filth and the fury with a breathtaking album of Post-Modern Folk gems.

Fresh from supporting Tony Joe White, at the Jazz Cafe, Boss Caine is indeed a 'stunning talent', Bob Harris BBCR2, and we're proud to have him come and share some truths at the Well.

Live acts:

The Snakeoil Rattlers:
Delight in the bourbon-swaggering Sexy, Southern Death Country-Rock of The Snakeoil Rattlers. Named after one of Steve Earle’s finest songs these good ol’ boys mix a perfect, three-finger whiskey blend of gifted musicianship with rock ’n’ Roll (bad) attitude. Be ready to rock-out... Southern Country Rock-out that is!

+Dana Immanuel:
A very welcome return to the high priestess of evil, Gothic Country Noir Dana Immanuel.
Bonanza & Son’s favourite banjo plucking, Gothic-Country Queen will hypnotise, seduce and beguile you with her twisted tales of Mother-loving creatures of the night that shoot from the hip in Murder Ballads and other such dark, tall stories from the crypt.

+Bonanza & Son DJ Set (ResonanceFM):
Radio Presenters, DJs and Club night promoters playing traditional Country as well as the most cutting edge examples of Americana and Avant-Country with a few oddities to twist your heads.

Bonanza & Son will be screening rare, cinematic, Americana curios for your visual stimulation and pleasure. Expect Acid Westerns, Revisionist Americana and Spaghetti Westerns.

+ Guest dj
Rob Morgan (If There Is Hell Below Podcast):
Obscure, Cosmic, Country-Rock of the highest order from the deepest-dug-crates by pod-caster, blogger, promoter and DJ extraordinaire Mr Rob Morgan… Be sure to tune in to his podcast every Friday evening.
