Cellar Forever

In support of our brothers and sisters at The Cellar [Oxford] we will be supporting the funding campaign Cellar Forever by taking donations at The Day of the Deadbeats 8 at The Isis Farmhouse on Saturday 24th November. The night will, as always, be free entry but we will be asking for your generous donations to support this important cause – plus all CD sales from our album ‘Day of the Deadbeats’ will go towards the campaign. So if you haven’t got a copy yet or if you haven’t been down to one of Oxfords best live music nights then the time is now people! Without essential building work the Cellar will be forced to close this December after 38yrs of live music. Here’s our chance to change this. See you there on the 24th and please dig deep! #cellarforever

Day of the Deadbeats 8

Number 8 is ready to roll y’all and we’ve got another night of free Oxford music from one of Oxfords greatest live music venues The Isis Farmhouse. Kicking off the night is Dan McKean Music – an Oxford based singer-songwriter singing delicate and melodic guitar and piano based songs with a folk, blues, and country twist. He will no doubt be bringing some delicate roots and sunshine pop moments to number 8’s Day of the Deadbeats. Next up!? Hold on to your draws as we have the pleasure of welcoming Oxfords newest supergroup The Heavy Vintage Ragtime Band! Fronted by Oxfords best loved band leader, the legendary Stuart Macbeth, they will get your toes tapping and your hip bones swinging with a rowdy set of much loved tunes to warm your cockles on even the most frosty of nights. Get there early as The Deadbeats will be warming up the room from 7pm – there will also be special guests Adrian Burns and Noreen Cullen who are not only the taverns governors but also world class musicians. If you don’t already know, our hostess with the mostess Noreen is a fiddle-player who genuinely sounds like no one else (aka the Hendrix of the Violin). She is joined by Adrian Burns on guitar and vocals and their repertoire encompasses Gypsy, Country, Blues, Pop and Rock. Come down and see why everyone is talking about them and why this month’s Nightshift Magazine has said The Deadbeat Apostles now have a “well earned reputation as one of the best live acts in Oxford”. 4 free acts in one of the most beautiful spots in Oxford.
