I am giving this band’s May gigs another plug as a) they are a damn fine band and b) you stand the chance of winning something at one of their gigs.
The Dowling Poole, formed by singer-songwriting duo Willie Dowling and Jon Poole, are playing three full electric live shows in May. 12 May – Evesham, Iron Road. 13 May – Bedford, Esquires, Holy Moly’s – downstairs. 14 May – London, Borderline.
“This will be the first time ever we play as a full electric band, outside of doing a live session a couple of years ago for the Marc Riley radio show on BBC6 Music”, says Willie Dowling. “For the three May shows we are joined by Andy Lewis on bass, Givvi Flynn on vocals and acoustic guitar, and Elliot Vaughan on drums, who has stepped in at the last moment to save the day, following a minor crisis trying to find someone to fill the drum chair”.
“We are very excited to play live again”, says Jon Poole. “The set will contain songs from our debut album ‘Bleak Strategies’ and our brand new album ‘One Hyde Park’. We feel that it’s a strong set of songs and we’re very much looking forward to meeting old and new friends of The Dowling Poole”.
Tickets available here.
Everyone who comes to the May gigs in Evesham, Bedford and London will get the chance to win one of the two signed masks that Jon and Willie wore during the videos and photographs for ‘Bleak Strategies’. Sign up at the merchandise desk at each gig to have a chance of winning.
