Barnsley's favourite comedy-folk band are back!
The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican are on amission to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive. They have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboard, keytar and the world's first synthesiser ukulele!
To complete their squeaky-clean image, brothers-from-other-mothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of knitwear.
A band that is both perpetually on the move and joyously independent, since forming in 2006, they have now played over 1000 side-splitting shows to date, and have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury. They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “The Lady In Greggs”, "How Deep Is Your Glove?", "Nandos", “Paint 'em Back", "Walking In Manpiss” and “If I Could Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.
The band that Jarvis Cocker once described as "the best thing to come out of Barnsley since the A61 to Sheffield", are delighted to be returning to The Lantern Theatre and they promise that they WILL rock you... but gently!
