Friday July 1st: Lazy Drunks (Live)!

Sharky's 'American 4th July Independence Day Weekend' began Friday Night with the return of the self-styled 'Men in Black' - the one and only 'Lazy Drunks (Live) !'

New line-up, new set-list and a ' whole lotta new' attitude - the Lazy Drunks brought their 'finest hour' to Sharky's with a truly eclectic set of raunchy good ol' fashioned rock and roll !

Any band that includes The Kinks, The Monkees, The Small Faces, Chuck Berry, The Animals and The Rolling Stones in their musical armoury - are obviously a band that knows how to shake, rattle n roll !

Throw-in' sublime versions of the Stealer's Wheel classic 'Stuck In The Middle With You' , Shocking Blue's 'Venus' and a thumping version of Thin Lizzy's 'Whiskey In The Jar' - and yes most definitely 'these boyz were back in town !' Big time !

With powerhouse singer Ian The Punk in outstanding form - his vocals on the Stones classic 'Dead Flowers' - nothing short of brilliant ! The Lazy Drunks could do 'no wrong.'

New additions to the band Todd (ex The Choppers) on bass and Ingo (professional session drummer from Germany) were exemplary in providing the 'solid platform' that so many previous line-ups of this same band had been missing.

With the rhythm section so forcefully 'in-tune' this allowed lead guitarist 'Tom The Mop' to showcase his full array of well orchestrated musical skills - no more so than on Pink Floyd's 'Time' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Hey Joe.' Great stuff !

There was still time for a bit of Elvis Presley, Led Zepplin and Eddie Cochrane towards the end - to round-off a very entertaining evening courtesy of the ' Lazy Drunks !'

Yes the 'Lazy Drunks' are back - and we all look forward to 'very much of the same' very soon - from this very underated 'sixties and seventies rock n roll' covers band !

Thanx fellaz !

The party continues tomorrow night with 'Little Duke & The Mekong Blues Messengers' displaying their awesome talents at our 'Annual 4th July American Independence Day Party !'

Don't miss it ! It's gonna be huge !

See you there - Dave The Punk
