The Beez In Concert $15 - $12 concessions

The Irish Club Weston

The Beez (from Berlin!) are presenting a completely different show from what they typically perform. 'Don't Mention the Wall' includes live music (mostly written by Rob Rayner), a slide show and stories from Deta Rayner and Rob Rayner, concerning their experiences, both personal and political, during the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

This marks the 25th anniversary. 'Don't Mention the Wall' is moving and informing. You will be enlightened from the point of view of a West Berliner and an Australian ex-patriot.

The band’s “Don´t Mention the Wall” cabaret program is a funny and moving account of the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall by the four musicians who were all there as it happened. They present a personal account in song, spoken word, still photography, historical document and film of one of the most momentous events of the 20th century.

The show is peppered with original songs by The Beez dealing with such diverse topics as the rise of neo-nazism in reunified Germany or the post-Wall banana shortage. It is presented in English (with the exception of three German songs which is subtitled).

George Gordon Noel, the 6th Lord Byron, was one of the greatest British poets and a leading figure in the Romantic Movement. He was an eccentric who was described by Lady Carolyn Lamb, one of his many lovers, as “mad, bad and dangerous to know”. It was an apt desciption of a character who regularly re-invented himself in creating the template for what was to become, in a later age, the rock star.

The Lord Byron 5 is a band of distinguished musicians dedicated to performing selected poetical works of Byron in an original and compelling musical and theatrical act. The brainchild of award-winning musician, composer and songwriter Craig Dawson, the show has been described as “Victorian steampunk folk-rock”. Dark, funny, sexy and energetic, the charactrisations reflect aspects of and people from Byron's short but turbulent and scandal-ridden life as the music varies from the sweetly lyrical “Lines Addressed to a Young Lady” through the brutally romatic “The Giaour” and all stops between.

The Lord Byron 5 is:

Craig Dawson, The Third Early of Cook: guitar, vocals, harmonica
Simone Dawson, Frauline de Flaute: woodwinds and vocals
Nick Powell, Friar Nicholas Nicholby of The Mang: keyboards
Rita Woolhouse, Contessa di Cello: cello and vocals
Dr Paul Dugdale, Doctor Paulidori: percussion
Fred Pilcher, Lord Frederick Wobblebottom of Twerk: bass and 12-string guitars and vocals

(Yes, we know that's six people, but this is poetry, not maths.)
