The Understudies – Sunday 07/05/2018

The sun’s shining and we’ve lots of ice cold beer. And pies!

Tonight, the Understudies are playing in the Tuns.

Four Gadgies from South Shields playing a load of tunes you don’t usually hear in pubs, with the kind of infectious energy and enthusiasm which has gained excellent reviews.

The band play a mix of Rock, Indie, Punk and new wave which hopes to find that elusive combination of songs you don’t hear but that you know and love.

Loads of proper mint songs by such bands and artists as…….Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Steely Dan, The Police, David Bowie, The Who, ELO, The Faces, Wings, Talking Heads, Prince, The Jam, and a few more. Mint!

The Tuns pie festival

This weekend is our annual Pie Festival. It would mean a lot to me and all our team if you dropped in and seen us.

We’ve 180 varieties of pies served with mash, peas and gravy (plenty veggie and vegan options) and 12 quality real ales and ciders, including a 10.5% special from Tyne Bank.

We’ve a cracking line up of live music starting from Heartbreaker on our opening night THIS Thursday 3rd May. All the very best of Free and Bad Company.

Friday it’s BLUE DIAMOND, with their beautiful harmonies and lovely playing covering tunes by Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Pink FLOYD and more.

Saturday it’s The Straits. Probably the UK’s favourite tribute to Dire Straits, and Sunday, our band of the year last year, THE UNDERSTUDIES. Look out for the best version of Prince’s Purple Rain you’ll ever hear anywhere.

Try and pop in and support our event.

You’ll be helping the longest established live Music pub in Gateshead keep doing what we do. Oh, and tell your friends or, better still, share our Facebook post.
