Big Vern 'n' The Shootahs 17 November 2018 7:30pm £17.50 stalls (cabaret seating) / £15.00 circle Lanark Memorial Hall
One of the UK’s biggest and hottest live bands is coming to Lanark Memorial Hall for a unique and intimate live show. Scotland’s Big Vern n the Shootahs are renowned throughout the live music circuit as the ultimate feel-good party band. If you like Sweet Soul Music and some great horn driven funk, this is the night for you.
There really is nothing to compare to a Big Vern n the Shootahs gig. A 9-piece powerhouse which has been rocking audiences all over the UK since 1989.
This band is at the forefront of live entertainment in the UK and abroad, whether at festivals, corporate show or even just on their own. As individuals, the band has a great pedigree, including Rupert Black on keyboards (The Pretenders, The Alarm, Talk Talk), the Big Vern horns (Wet Wet Wet, Danny Wilson, Gallagher & Lyle, Jim Diamond) and Kevin ‘morph’ Dobie on guitar (Donnie Munro solo)
A big name (literally), a big band they are a Premier League outfit – second to no-one. Classic funk, soul and party music augmented with great stage routines and a kicking fat sound. Once described as the outcome of the Blues Brothers and Prince having a square-go round the back of a studio. Come and see what the fuss is all about, you’ll not be disappointed.
Please note that the Stalls will be cabaret style tables of 10. Customers please note that you may be sharing a table with other patrons.

This November marks the centenary of the signing of the Armistice. Using specially selected photographs from the regimental collection of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) this new exhibition helps to highlight the part played by the regiment in the First World War.
No exhibition could ever do justice to the countless deeds of bravery and sacrifices of those who served, but it is hoped this display of photographs will help highlight the part played by Lanarkshire’s local infantry regiment – The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles).
A special evening event of talks with guest speakers will take place on Tuesday 6 of November. A limited number of tickets are available from the box office for this event.
