Never miss another 'Dubious Brothers' show
The cult 80s anarchic music hall act, The Dubious Brothers have reformed after 24 years. Between 1986 and 1990 they amazed and bewildered audiences all over Europe with their anarchic satirical Pre War sound and spectacular theatrical stage show. Whilst the band played a heady mix of music hall foxtrots, tangos and waltzes, surreal Greek dancing surgeons flung them selves into the frenzied audience whilst ghostly victorian gentlemen rode strange upside down bicycle machines on stage. The set was reminiscent of both the misty docks of Victorian London and the inventing room of Chitty Chitty Bang Bangs' Caractacus Potts.
Although their dance music looked firmly backwards in time , the lyrics were rich in biting modern political satire. "The Dog ate My Poll Tax Form" and What A Lovely Day For A Hunt Sabotage" were particular fan favourites and The Dubious Brothers took particular delight in mocking the British Establishment. No Judge or Freemason was safe from their gaze.

The Panic Brothers are Richard Morton & Reg Meuross: two men, two guitars, two mics, two voices that blend so well it's hard to tell which is which.
The pair have reunited, after a break of 25 years, and are teaming up with some of their most talented friends from the business for a series of cabaret style evenings of music and comedy.
High energy, punchy songs, "Spine-chilling harmonies" (The Guardian), "combination of sharp,witty songs, tight harmonies and powerful acoustic guitars" (Time Out).
