Soul Jam: Bill Brewster presents ’60 Not Out’
Mega chuffed to be welcoming a Soul Jam all-time favourite guest back to Sneaky’s. In 2015, Bill played one of our festival get-togethers. It’s definitely one of our favourites to date. He’s got an encyclopaedic knowledge of music, plays a really broad spectrum of music perfect for our sweaty wee party, and now he’s back. Pure buzzin, he’s class.
Oh it’s £5. Bargain.
In the olden days upon reaching 60 years old it was the custom that, if you were lucky, you’d be retired to a Miner’s Welfare home in Skegness or moved to a concentration camp just outside Spennymoor. If you were less lucky, you’d be boiled down to make glue.
Thankfully those days are over with the retirement age now being raised to 95. To celebrate his 60th birthday, Bill Brewster, a legend in his own mind, is doing a series of shows and talks to prove that not only is life not over at 60 but, now that he’s eligible for a Senior Railcard, it’s just beginning, as he joins the elite band of DJs now travelling to shows in a souped-up mobility scooter (top speed 10mph).
After a lifetime of dedication to revolutionary socialism, tea, disco and watching Grimsby Town lose, it’s the least you can do to come and support him in his efforts to make the world a better place. Undeterred and unbowed (or, depending on your point of view, almost interred and only slightly bowed) he is taking his campaign to the masses. More disco! More socialism! More tea (vicar)! He won’t be stopping until every DJ booth in the UK comes fitted with a Stannah stairlift.
Mon’ doon for a dance.Buy Tickets
