High energy new wave and punk rock band The Dogmattics’ return to The Wheatsheaf in North Street, Leighton on Friday (November 28).

The gig they did a year ago was 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!

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.

> Milner, a four-piece blues rock and Indie covers band from Welwyn Garden City will take the audience through around six decades of music on Saturday night.

From well known covers to some great lesser known numbers that actually extend right through the range of Jazz, Soul, RnB, Blues and Indie Rock taking in classics from the Stones, Stevie Wonder, Paul Weller, The Small Faces, Artic Monkeys, Pearl Jam, The Jam, Stereophonics, The Specials, The Who and many more!

Vocals and guitar man Neil Armstrong will hope to take the audience into orbit with the help of Ian Hartley on guitar and keyboard, Paul Forster on bass and Ed Blackburn beating the drums at the back.

This well-established band has been together for 16 years and has been playing venues in North London, Herts and Beds.

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