Who's got that carnival feeling!?

It's that time for a party as we welcome back Rivelino to the stage!

Rivelino are a North-East covers band who have been whipping the pubs and clubs of South Tyneside and beyond into a musical frenzy for the last 6 years. Playing all genres of music they cover Rock, Pop, Funk and Soul classics by Bruce Springsteen, Oasis, Bay City Rollers, Coldplay, Rolling Stones, Jackie Wilson, Kings of Leon, Rod Stewart, Dion & The Belmonts, Stereophonics, Sam Cook, Paulo Nutini, Fleetwood Mac, U2 and many more with a unique fun style of delivery, humor & enthusiasm. Audience participation is hugely encouraged (if not demanded!) and they’re never averse to playing audience requests (or at least busking them badly) when the night demands it. These guys really get the party started.

Free entry and open til 1am. 2-4-1 cocktails before 9pm and after 11pm

Trimmers Arms South Shields are proud to announce....


"The Official International Arctic Monkeys Tribute Band from the UK."

From the release of the Arctic Monkeys first album, ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', the phenomenon soon swept the UK. Four guys from Wolverhampton realized the Arctic Monkeys would become an arena band and not play smaller venues.

Formed in March 2006 from a jamming session, The Antarctic Monkeys took a big chance in which they became a phenomenon in their own right, travelling the UK, playing venues armed only with one album of material.

The success has continued and now armed with a setlist of almost 30 songs, the demand for the Antarctic Monkeys is ever growing with tours booked up Worldwide.

We start the night in the lounge with support from Neil McBride at 7.30pm,before the lads take to the stage in the Live Lounge!
