Saturday 5th October


Dean James and the Black Dogs are a hard hitting dirty Blues-Rock outfit from the UK. They have a very diverse range of influences, from the great singer songwriters of Billy Joel and Damien rice to the blues legends of John Lee Hooker and seasick Steve. When Dean James was a teenager he was overwhelmed by Nirvana and sites Kurt Cobain as his main inspiration. Think of the Black Dogs as Blunge (Blues Grunge) with a little bit of acoustic tenderness thrown into the mix.
Dean played for many years in covers bands in the UK before leaving that circuit to concentrate on his original material. He was soon signed by local indie label ‘Forgotten City Records’ where he recorded his debut album ‘Pure’. Pure caught the attention of newly formed GEM records UK and was signed to the label to produce ‘Truth’.

Dean is looking forward to playing a rare gig in his hometown: “playing this great venue in South Shields doing a mix of Originals and Cover with full band, will be an excellent night“.

Event is FREE. The guys are on stage at 9pm, special offers on the bar all night including 2-4-1 cocktails all night.
