The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican
Hailing from Barnsley Rock City, undisputed northern kings of parody, The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican, are on a mission! Determined to follow in their spiritual father’s immortal footsteps and keep his legacy alive, they have a talent for Bar-Stewardizing other famous people’s songs with new comedy lyrics, on acoustic geetar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, keyboard, keytar, and the world's first synthesiser ukulele! To complete their squeaky-clean image, brothers-from-other-mothers Scott, Björn and Alan have become instantly recognisable for their immaculate hair and their stylish choice of knitwear.
A band that is both perpetually on the move and joyously independent, since forming in 2006, they have brought smiles and belly-laughs to audiences across the UK; from Barnsley to Barnstaple, from Glasgow to Glastonbury. They continue to wow audiences with a fine selection of their greatest hits, including the likes of “Jump Ararnd”, “The Lady In Greggs”, "How Deep Is Your Glove?", "Nandos", “Paint 'em Back", and “If I Could Punch A Face… It’d Be Justin Bieber’s”.
This very special evening in the band's history, marks their 1000th show to date, and they intend to celebrate in true anarchic fashion. The Bar-Steward Son of Val Doonican can't wait to bring their shindig to the Palace Theatre, and they promise that they will rock you... but gently!
