ENTRY TO BEESES FOR FRIDAY NIGHT BANDS IS FREE
You may know we like music at Beese’s and having introduced live bands for every Friday* in 2017 and 2018 we are in the process of lining up another great mix of Bristol and nearby talent for 2019.
Despite having some fantastic bands lined up for 2019 entry to see them at Beeses will remain 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.
See Bristol Ferry for details of their Friday evening departure times
We kicked 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. This year saw a mix of swing, blues, funk, soul, reggae with some newcomers to Beeses and some past favourites.
As mentioned, in 2019 we’ll be hosting live music every Friday, details and the lineup will be coming in the near future. Meanwhile, here’s the Bands at Beeses line up from 2018, giving you an idea of what you can expect.
