CATFISH & THE BOTTLEMEN FOUNDING MEMBER BILLY BIBBY HERE THIS FRIDAY!

Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles are at the venue this Friday 9th June!

Billy Bibby & The Wry Smiles are a four-piece band from North Wales/Chester, comprised of Catfish and the Bottlemen founding member Billy Bibby – lead vocals, guitar; Rob Jones – lead guitar, vocals; Matt Thomas – bass, vocals; and Mike Pearce – drums. Since playing their first full band gig in November 2015, it’s been non-stop with close to 100 gigs and festivals in 40+ UK cities, combined with the release of a debut EP and two follow-up singles.

Manchester legend Clint Boon describes the band’s music as “that classic sort of British songwriting with a strong nod to Americana” naming Elvis Costello and Bruce Springsteen as points of reference and predicting “a massive future”.
Bibby has clearly surrounded himself with talent. Experience also plays a key role considering Bibby’s history as a UK Platinum Certified recording artist with Catfish and the Bottlemen, bringing to bear seven years of gigging and songcraft to every show and in every heartfelt song he’s written.

The band’s influences remain diverse and ever-changing, both classic and cutting edge, with new songs constantly being added to the live repertoire. Come to a gig and experience the band at their very best!
