Dogmattics bring plenty of energy to The Wheatie


High energy new wave and punk rock band, The Dogmattics, return to The Wheatsheaf, in North Street, Leighton on Friday (January 30).

Recent gigs have been brilliant with sets including numbers from Sweet, Stiff Little Fingers, Greenday, Motorhead, Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Damned, The Buzcocks, The Clash, The Stranglers, The Vapours, The Undertones and seemingly any other bands that start with ‘The’ including The Monkeys!

There’s plenty to dance or pogo along to in a lively fun evening taking you back to the fine sounds of the 70s, 80s and 90s.

The band are: Steve Smith on vocals and guitar ably supported by Ian Kimmance, Richard Durrant and Harry.

Saturday night sees a total change of key when Peppermint Store present three artists with the lovely Nakisha Esnard headlining the evening with her great personality, wonderful voice and her ukulele!

Nakisha, a musician poet from Bedfordshire with her roots in the Caribbean, has been touring all over the UK for the last year. Her mixed culture shows through her music which includes reggae amongst her mixed genre and styles.

In support are Rise Bailey Rise, an alternative acoustic act from Rich Patmore, plus Attic Glitch.

Music at The Wheatie starts around 9.30pm on both evenings and admission is free.
