The Pagans S.O.H (Shepherds of Humanity) and HÜDS to play new live music night at The Bear Tavern on 7th February

Bearwood Promoters present the second in a series of monthly live music nights with West Brom’s The Pagans S.O.H (Shepherds of Humanity) headlining ‘Bear Grooves’ at The Bear Tavern, with support from Wolverhampton’s HÜDS, on Friday 7th February, from 8pm.

The Pagans bring their award-winning, explosive style to Bearwood to kick off 2020 for Bear Grooves. The band who won ‘Best Live Act’ at the inaugural Black Country Music Awards in 2019, and were described as the “Best new band I’ve seen for ages” by Chris Hawkins of BBC 6 MUSIC, are set to continue pleasing crowds and selling out bigger venues around the country this year with their unique mix of hip hop, punk, jazz, funk, metal and reggae! Keeping it local, high-energy, avant-garde rock outfit HÜDS are supporting.

Jez Collins, Bearwood Promoters, says:  

Grassroots live music venues are the lifeblood of the music industry. It’s where bands and musicians learn their craft and where audiences get a first glimpse of the superstars of tomorrow.

Bear Grooves is proud to be bringing back regular live music to the legendary upstairs room at the Bear Tavern, where giants of music such as Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy have played. It’s going to be a great night.
