The Noels Arms: ‘The Peas’ 4pm


Acoustic covers and Christmas classics from this talented duo. Playing everything from the double bass to the kazoo, Kelly and Kelvin aways put on a fun show suitable for the whole family.

‘The Peas’, a Duo, no rules, the wrong chords but the right melody……and Kazoo’s….! The Peas enjoy playing classic songs from the 80’s and 90’s, but as they have no access to the tools to recreate the songs with a Full Band they have just cracked on with what’s to hand and so playing them as they were originally written doesn’t apply here. With Double Bass, Acoustic Guitar and a Bass Drum. ‘The Peas’ recreate their own interpretation with added Vocal Harmony, Mouth Trumpets, Beatboxing, Melodica and Bickering….. You haven’t heard anything until you’ve heard “The Final Countdown” done with a tongue firmly in cheek and with a bit of a swing by this pair.

To Put you in the Mood!  Last Christmas as performrd by THE PEAS:

The Geese and Fountain (Croxton Kerrial): Geese Folk and Acoustic Night.

Second Sunday of every month is the Geese & Fountain Folk and Acoustic Club. It’s December, so wassails, carols and seasonal tunes especially welcome but not essential. Bring instruments, your voice, your songs or just your ears.

The Half Moon: It’s the final Countdown for ‘Bitter and Twisted’ 7pm

This stuff doesn’t write itself? Heres a look under the bonnet.

Pete – can we delete previous Bio and have a brand new one, please ?

Soz, Havent finished Im a tosser with these new type writers


For when?

Right ! = *7pm* Sunday 8th December 2019. Half Moon, Melton. Bitter and Twisted finish as a duo at the end of the year, so its brilliant that we get to return to The Half Moon before we go. The Moon have supported us since the beginning of this venture and when we first emerged as inexperienced talentless idiots. We have completely turned it around and now appear as experienced idiots without talent. So, this Sunday you get to choose the music and we’ll murder it. Let’s say ‘Bye’ in style. Come and join us for the start of a Bitter Christmas with just a hint of Twistedness.


From Bitter and Twisted: “The end is nigh, be there to witness our demise :- One of our last three ever Gigs ever. This Sunday (8th) 7pm Half Moon. OMG ! The final countdown.”

Bitter and Twisted are a local acoustic duo performing well known classic covers. All ages and genres of songs are catered for. This is no ‘tra la la lee’,, ‘airy fairy’, ‘wishy washy’, type combo. The pair perform with oomph, attitude and humour. Darren plays the guitar and sings. He wears glasses, and is quite sensible. His assistant sits on a box and can’t play or sing. He doesn’t wear glasses but needs them. So, if you fancy a sing a long party atmosphere with a bit of fun, a bit of clapping, a bit of dancing, its Bitter and Twisted. You might like it.
