The Ouse Valley Singles Club
The Ouse Valley Singles Club is a 3 piece band hailing from the market town of Bedford whose roots are sprung out of the 1950’s Skiffle scene. They combine this traditional sound with the energy of Punk, the swing of Rock and Roll and then layer that with naughty saucy postcard lyrics in true folk story telling fashion and in doing this they have created a truly original sound. Musically they have been described as New Wave Skiffle. George Formby meets The Clash, where Vaudevillian music hall blends with working men’s club values. Since their formation back in 2009, OVSC have gigged steadily on the live music circuit where they have performed around the country’s pubs and musical venues. They have supported musical legends Chas and Dave as well as Pete Docherty and warmed up for Bob Geldof and The Boomtown Rats at The Great British Alternative Music Weekender. As well as Beer Festivals and local events such as Cambridge’s Strawberry Fair and Peterborough’s BMF - British Motorbike Federation under their belts they are no strangers to the Festival Circuit neither.
Approx 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm

Friday 26th August
Merry Hell
Founded in their native North West of England, Merry Hell is an eight-piece folk rock band with a history, a pedigree and a bright future. In just 5 short years they have risen to become festival favourites their albums finding favour with critics, broadcasters and music fans alike. They are continuing to develop an enviable reputation for the quality of their song writing recorded work and live performances
The band was forged from the smouldering embers of 90’s folk/punk band The Tansads. Following an emotional series of reunion concerts in 2010, its members chose to tread the boards under a new name , Merry Hell (taken from Tansads song Separate Souls) in order to reflect their new impetus, new hopes and, most importantly, new songs.
While Merry Hell retains the nucleus of five former Tansads members, brothers John(guitar), Bob(mandolin) and Andrew (vocals) Kettle, along with Lee Goulding (keys), Andy Jones (drums) , the addition of vocalist, Virginia Kettle (wife of John) has helped create a new identity purpose and spirit in their music. Nick Davies (bass) and Neil McCartney (fiddle) complete the band line-up.
Hugely popular on the festival circuit, 2015 saw Merry Hell rise to even greater critical enthusiasm both at home and, increasingly, around the world.
Promising to be a very special night at PBF 2016.
Approx 9.15 pm to 10.45 pm

One Eyed Cats
The Glorious One Eyed Cats are a lively seven piece Peterborough band that plays a variety of music that everybody knows, ranging from Rock and Roll through Rhythm and Blues to Swing and Good Times.
Whether it’s high-octane rock & roll, cool blues, jumping rhythm, driving rock or a hair-down sing-along, the Cats always deliver. And deliver incredibly well.
The Cats formed some eighteen years ago out of a group of established musicians all looking to get back to having fun. As such, they honed their sound playing in bars and festivals; the stages starting small and getting progressively larger. Their music has taken them around the world, but they always love to come home.
Their large line up is suited to their huge sound, with a fiery brass section, rocking guitar and rolling piano.
Their music is always lively, passionate and entertaining. They always aim to lift the roof off, rock socks off and leave everybody fully entertained - having had a good laugh, boogie and night. All with immense enthusiasm, fine humour and unquestionable musicianship.
Come and see the Glorious One Eyed Cats, let your hair down and treat yourself to this great Saturday finale to Peterborough Beer Festival 2016.
