The Geese and Fountain: ‘Babar Luck, Pog, and Tim Holehouse’ 8pm (As part of Belvoir Camra Pub of the Year night)
A very special night planned at the Geese and Fountain on Friday, April 5th, as we welcome some stars of the alt-folk scene to join us in celebrating our Vale of Belvoir CAMRA Pub Of The Year award for 2019.
Former bassist of UK ska-core band King Prawn, Babar Luck has also recorded with numerous musicians including Suicide Bid & Ocarina, has also performed & recorded material with Sandra Falk, Captain Hotknives & Lu Edmonds and continues to create music with an array of players from all walks of life.
Babar Luck has also performed at many festivals of various ‘genres’ including Transmusicales Festival in France, Beautiful Days Festival in the UK & Denmark’s massive Roskilde Festival.
Pog is a folk punk collective from Brighton. For this tour they are performing as a violin, keyboards and guitar 3 piece, and will play songs from a back catalogue that spans 15 albums. Expect a mash up of folk, punk, indie and klezmer, all set to everyday vignettes.
Tim has been on the road pretty much full time touring his music for over 10 years now, having toured almost every country in Europe, Iceland, Japan, Australia, USA and Canada (to name a few).
Tim mainly plays his own material, which comes from a variety of sources and inspirations from Punk, Hardcore, Blues, Jazz, Country blues, Experimental music, Heavy Metal and even Electronic music (good music is good music right?). Each of his albums has a different take and the music is very much written from the heart.
At 9pm the Vale of Belvoir CAMRA branch will present The Geese and Fountain with the 2019 VOB CAMRA Pub Of The Year award.

The Black Swan: ‘Jacuzzi Soup’ 9pm
‘Jacuzzi Soup’ are a fun six-piece party band, playing soul, funk and disco music that has been carefully chosen to get you on your feet and keep you there. We have a fun, engaging female lead, with female backing vocals (also a very accomplished cowbell player!), stunning guitar riffs, funky bass, brass, organ, Hammond etc on Keys and fantastic drums (lovely shiny cymbals too).
In the Beginning:
Jacuzzisoup was originally formed in 2003 by employees of the Pfizer pharmaceutical company, located in Sandwich Kent. Although only intended to give a ‘one-off’ charity performance, the band soon found themselves in regular demand. Over the following years, and several line up changes, the ‘Soupers’ built a loyal following and became known as a well-respected function band.
The Growing Years: Following a short sabatical, the band returned in 2010, thus continuing the Jacuzzisoup story into a new decade. Ever since, the ‘Soupers’ have delighted audiences across the UK with their unique blend of energy and musicianship.
Where We’re Going: 2017 saw the core of the band relocate to the Lincolnshire area, and with a the addition of some fabulous local musicians, we begin another chapter in the band’s history!
So come on down for a right Royal boogie. And you’ll become a crouton too.
