FRIDAY 17th Aug

The Noels Arms: ‘Oak’ 8.30pm (Rock)


‘Oak’ are a classic three-piece band and have been established for over 15 years with a change in guitarist just over 2 years ago. Playing songs from 60s to modern day. Classic rock and party number like the Time Warp and are very much looking forward to our third visit to the Noel’s. Not to be confused with a band from Nottingham of the same name, these guys hail from Lincolnshire and indeed includes Drummer Tarn Oxley who does the Lincoln Gig Guide like this one. Check them out in a HD video from a previous visit. Top Quality rock as you can see.



The Black Swan: ‘Dawson Smith and The Dissenters’ 9pm (Smokin’ Blues, Rock)


‘Dawson Smith & The Dissenters’ are well known on the gig circuit as a top class boogie band that always deliver a great rockin’ show. A must see for fans of guitar driven blues / rock. Classic covers from the likes of ZZ Top, Dr Feelgood, The Stones, Creedence and many more. Dawson (vocals / guitar) and Martin Burch (lead / slide guitar) both contribute original songs to the set. There is a new album on the horizon for early next year that will be accompanied by a feature article in Blues Matter magazine and the same in R2 magazine so this bands profile is definitely on the up which is well earned as Dawson & The Dissenters have always put in the road miles as a hard gigging band that are sure to get The Grapes rocking.
