The legendary Geno, the man so good that Dexys named their best known song after him (what do you mean, his name's not 'Eileen'? Pay attention at the back!!) returns to the Nags Head for the first time in nearly four decades. Now almost 70 and resident in the UK for many years, he and his magnificent Ram Jam Band are sure to deliver a show of pounding, non-stop floorstomping soul and R'n'B the way it should be done!! If you haven't seen Geno yet, you've missed out.
The gig proper finishes at 11, but in the downstairs bar til 2 30 am afterwards there will be a live Dj set from Shindig's very own Phil Istine, playing soul, R'n'B, beat and ska favourites til you stop drinking and dancing. A fabulous evening awaits, get yo' dancing shoes on!!....
