August 15, 2012 Music

Popular Peterborough based soul band – Motor City Vipers – will be entertaining the crowds at Charters bar as part of the Summer Sunday series of gigs.

The converted Dutch barge moored on the River Nene has the biggest beer garden in town and is perfect for a chill out on a Sunday with some great free live music, so head down on Sunday August 19 from 3.30pm!

Charters has also invited representatives from Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice to host a tombola stand at the event, as along with its sister venues in Peterborough; The Brewery Tap and East, the group regularly raises funds for the hospice.  Thorpe Hall provides care for people over the age of 18, with active, progressive and advanced illness, where the focus of care is on quality of life.

The Motor City Vipers are an electrifying eight-piece band who recreate some of the greatest Northern Soul and Motown floor-fillers from the 60s and 70s… from The Temptations, Wilson Pickett and Dobie Gray, to The Supremes, Jackie Wilson and Otis Reading. The band features Andy Whittaker (pictured) – a former Live Music columnist for ESP Magazine.

As ever, there’ll be a wide range of drinks to choose from including award-winning local brews from Oakham Ales, whilst listening to the band.  You can enjoy a pint both on the deck of Charters, as well as at the outside bar so you don’t miss any of the music!

So make sure your Sunday is sunny, whatever the weather, and head down there on Sunday August 19.
