The Griffin’s intimate setting makes for the perfect venue to catch the heavy southern-fried soul band. Featuring Dan Brown (bass), Matt Jones (drums), Dan Moore (keyboards), Stew Jackson (guitar) and Yolanda Quarty (vocals), this Bristol-based bands roots lie in the Stax, Atlantic, gospel, country and good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. Imagine Aretha mixing it up with Led Zeppelin and Johnny Cash, then you’ll know what kind of noise Phantom Limb will bring to the party.
As part of their current tour, Boot Hill Allstars return to the Griffin on Saturday for another evening chock-full of choice cuts of the finest boot-legged hoedown. Support comes from Who’s Afear’d who play classic tunes with a Dorset-loving twist.
On Sunday, Kara Richardson will be playing The Griffin’s Sausage Sunday. Kara has been singing since the age of eight and, having played with a variety of diverse bands, has gained a wide range of musical experience. She has performed everything from Latino ska to Celtic heavy metal.
The sausage barbecue starts from 1pm.
