Live music


You may know we like music at Beese’s and having introduced live bands for every Friday* in 2017 we have lined up another great mix of Bristol and and nearby talent for 2018

Dysfunktional opened Beeses 2017 season to a full house and with a set that had the crowd jumpin’ and begging for more

Despite having some fantastic bands lined up for 2018 entry to see them at Beeses is still free.

BristolFerry Boats run a Friday Night trip from Welsh Back to Beeses and the ticket price includes the journey to Beeses AND food when you get here

On top of Friday nights we’ll have plenty of music at our BeerFest towards the end of the season in September, yet to be announced.

See Bristol Ferry for details of their Friday eveneing departure times

We will kick off 2018 on our opening night of Friday 30th March (aka Good Friday) in a suitable riotous mode with The Stiff Upper Lips who definitely know how to get the party started. The following weeks will bring a mix of swing, blues, funk, soul, reggae with some newcomers to Beeses and some past favourites.
