Rousing end to 2014 Ropery Hall programme
Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall will be bringing its 2014 programme to a rousing close when Snake Davis makes a welcome return to the venue with his band, The Suspicions.
A musical extravaganza featuring brass and girl singers, playing sax versions of Stax, Motown and Atlantic classics is promised when Snake takes to the stage on Saturday, December 27.
“This band only play together three or four times a year and when they do get together it really is something very, very special indeed!” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “So we are really delighted to welcome Snake back so we can say goodbye to 2014 in some style.”
“It now appears to be a Ropery Hall tradition that Snake and his band give the out-going year a rousing send-off here in Barton,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
At the moment Snake is currently on tour in Japan playing the length and breadth of that country with, arguably, Japan’s all time most successful rock star Eikichi Yazawa.
“Snake and The Suspicions will be performing classic tracks from Atlanta, Motown and Northern Soul as well as their own versions of tunes such as The Champion, Sweetest Feeling, Green Onions, Love is Serious Business and Do I Love You,” Liz continued.
The Suspicions were originally formed in the student bar of Leeds Polytechnic as Snake Davis and his Alligator Shoes and after reforming a few years ago they are now seen as one of the best soul bands playing live in the country playing versions of Stax, Motown and Atlantic classics.
The standing only gig takes place on Saturday, December 27, starting at 8pm. Tickets cost £16 in advance or £18 on the door and are rapidly being snapped up. They can be bought through the website www.roperyhall.co.uk, by calling in at the Craft Gallery or by telephoning 01652 660380.
