Live music

We like music at Beese’s, so much so that in 2017 we’ll be having music every Friday*

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

On top of Friday nights we’ll have plenty of music at our BeerFest.


See Bristol Ferry for details of departure times if you’re coming from the city centre



So this year we started the season with Dysfunktional on Good Friday and they went down a storm getting everybody in the mood for what turned out to be a rather fine holiday weekend.

The following week we had the slightly mysterious Lionel, Ritchie and the Wardrobe, who lulled everyone into a false sense of soft comfort before breaking out some great sing along covers.  They will be back!

In May we will welcome The Raskals, The Jumps, Vapor (acoustic soul & reggae with just a hint of country!) ; in June JJ Gatsby (yes, old favourites), as well as Stiff Upper Lips, The Forfeits, and the curiously-named, but fabulous Lionel, Richie and the Wardrobe!

In July, a much anticipated return to Beeses of The Dukes of Mumbai, as well as the Chunk of Funk, with their loose-limbed grooves and funky stuff. And to finish that month, Just 3, a professional vocal harmony trio who perform their own arrangements of well known soul/motown, gospel & pop songs.

Here’s a Bands at Beeses line up showing who is appearing when – we think it’s looking good!
