What's on

Geraint Watkins and his band

Unfortunately, until October, there are no more Sundays at The Bedford for the Watkins troupe…even though the last two were sell-outs…because there’s simply no room at the inn. But, luckily for you, we’ve managed to find one Monday night in March so that you can kick start your week with some world-class music. Being a Monday, there will be no support act this time, but Watkins and his band will hopefully be joined by a couple of guests. Be sure to grab your seats quickly as it’s sure to be another sold out show. Geraint will be on stage promptly at 8.30. Don’t miss it.

Born in Wales, Watkins was a member of noted British bands Juice on the Loose and Red Beans & Rice and following a move to London with the latter, he soon found himself on the “Be Stiff Route 78” tour as part of Micky Jupp’s band. Shortly afterwards in 1979, Andy Fairweather Low produced Watkins’ first album for the Vertigo label. Session work for producer Stuart Coleman followe which led to a regular spot for Geraint in Shakin’ Stevens’ band before going on to record and play live with Dave Edmunds and many others including Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Mark Knopfler, Dr. Feelgood, Rory Gallagher, The Blues Band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stray Cats, Carl Perkins, John Wesley Harding, Tom Jones and John Martyn.

Playing at the iconic South London pub, the Bedford Pub, Watkins is appearing with his band which includes:

OLIVER DARLING. Guitar/vocals
MARTIN WINNING. Sax/clarinet/vocals
PAUL RILEY. Bass/vocals
