The incredibly talented Stompin’ Dave appears in the Cellar Bar at Farnham Maltings this Thursday 6th February. For those who don’t know Stompin’ Dave, he plays guitar, banjo, electric violin, harmonica and piano (all brilliantly!) He also ‘flat foot dances’ (like tap dancing) on a board while playing one of the said instruments, quite often with the instrument behind his head, between his legs or tossed in the air! He’s absolutely brilliant and funny too! Stompin’ Dave is ably supported by award-winning drummer Sam Kelly and Earl Jackson on second guitar and bass. Three great personalities! Do join us for a massive night of entertainment and great musicianship. Tickets cost just £10 and you can reserve your place and pay on the night. Doors open at 8.15 pm for a 9.00 pm start. For ticket reservations, click here: http://www.boogaloopromotions.com/tickets. The full address of Farnham Maltings is Bridge Square, Farnham GU9 7QR.
