Everly Pregnant Brothers announce one-off 'all electric' show to celebrate Leadmill's 40th birthday
Sheffield music legends the Everly Pregant Brothers have announced a one-off ‘all electric’ show to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Leadmill.
The concert, dubbed the ‘Judas’ show, will see the Brothers ditch their trademark ukuleles for one night only – and plug in their instruments for a special show as part of the iconic city venue's 40th birthday celebrations.
The show will take place on May 2 and tickets went on sale this morning.
A Leadmill spokesman said: “As part of The Leadmill’s 40th Anniversary celebrations, Sheffield’s very own Everly Pregnant Brothers will play a very special ‘Judas’ show, they’ll be going all-electric, no ukes for one night only!
The Everly Pregnant Brothers were formed after a drunken dare by Pete McKee and Richard Bailey in 2009.
The success of the dare prompted the pair to draught in a bunch of disparate chaps who had three things in common, the love of beer, ukuleles and having a laugh.
Frontman Shaun Doane sets the tone and drives proceedings forward with a huge vocal performance and some wicked renditions of music classics. A national treasure in their native Sheffield, the Brothers playful tampering of classic songs has won them friends and fans far and wide.
Their songs include tracks such as Me Chip Pan’s On Fire, Get Mucky, Oyl In’t Road and Hendo's, a tribute to Henderson’s Relish set to Coldplay’s Yellow.
Tickets are priced at £25 and are available at www.leadmill.co.uk
