Dodgy @ St James
7pm - 12am
7pm - 12am
Dodgy is coming to Guernsey, bringing with them great music and great memories of the Britpop era in the early 90s! Dodgy are probably best known for their hits 'Staying out for the Summer', 'If you're thinking of me' and their biggest hit and No.4 in the UK singles chart 'Good Enough'. We are really excited to announce their gig on the St James stage this September.
2023 sees the bands 27th birthday, and though many will remember them best from their early days, the band managed the seemingly impossible and put out a comeback album in 2012, to huge critical acclaim. Creating a sound with “golden harmonies and echoes of CSN&Y and Fleet Foxes”, and prompting The Word magazine to say "They’ve just made the record of their career by a country mile", The Guardian described the album as a "revelation" whilst it went on to get 4**** reviews in Mojo, Uncut, Q, The Times, The Mirror and The Express.In 2017 Dodgy released ‘What Are We Fighting For’ on Cherry Red Records, the fifth album from the original line-up of Nigel Clark, Mathew Priest and Andy Miller to amazing reviews and was the first collection of new material since their critically acclaimed reunion album, ‘Stand Upright In A Cool Place’ in 2012. It was also the first album to feature new member Stu Thoy on bass and also featured the incredible Vanessa Wilson-Best from Ultrasound.Gigs and festival appearances have always been a crucial part of the Dodgy experience, for many they are the perfect festival band. The band have performed at most festivals worth their salt, such as Bestival, Isle of Wight, Camp Bestival, V Festival, Glastonbury, Reading, Beautiful Days, Hyde Park, Kendal Calling and many more across the UK and Europe.
