Scooter enthusiasts will descend on Woolacombe this weekend for an annual rally. Back in Devizes our own Scooter Club host their monthly do at the Cons Club on Saturday night (22nd Sept), with the brilliant Day Breakers from Swindon.
Let’s be honest here, it’s no walk in the park for them, attracting scooterists with a highly regarded rally on at the same time. This said The Devizes Scooter Club has fast built a reputation in town for hosting some quality and very worthy events, ideal to attract anyone with a passing interest in soul, reggae, ska and mod music of yore.
Also, they’ve actively supported and raised funds for The Devizes & District Opportunity Centre with two free fun days.
Notwithstanding the repertoire of The Day Breakers doesn’t just confine itself to the genres of the Scooter Club, but expands to include a diverse range of retrospective anthems; Dexys, The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, to name but a few, and also have an element of folk-rock and Irish classics from The Pouges and The Levellers, for example.
Together their blend creates a buzzing atmosphere. I’m delighted to announce them appearing at our Birthday Bash event in November, that’s how passionate I am about these guys. You may also have seen the band’s duo act of Cath and Gouldy under the pseudonym Sound Affects, also prolifically gigging locally.
So, perhaps it’s the ideal opportunity for you to throw caution to the wind, and give it the sociable Scooter Club events a go; help them fill the large venue, as it’ll only attain said buzzing atmosphere if we, Devizes bohemians support it! Don’t arrive at the break of day though, what’s in a name? Doors will open at 7:30pm…I think! Tickets are a tenner, expected to be on the door or in advance at the club, Jeffersons and Vinyl Realm.
