A message to you from Roger’s Codgers…

We are four Codgers who remain young at heart and are wondering where the time went and why we have still not aspired to Rock & Roll superstardom! (I can think of a few reasons, actually!)

We play acoustic cover versions of some our favourite songs, from the fifties to the 2000’s, which are usually received well by our audiences on the local circuit.

Two of the Codgers attend the Heartbeat Gym sessions – whence began our relationship with the wonderful organisation. Since that time we have featured at the Heartbeat birthday festival last year and have donated our takings from ‘Longton Live’ and played a Charity gig at Penwortham Arts Centre (The Venue) which was a sell-out!

A further venture at The Venue was cancelled due to lockdown and this is a revival of that event with added ingredients!!

We are joined on this occasion by two other bands, ‘Bandicoot’ and ‘Chique’.

If you came to our last event you will have enjoyed ‘The Dead Horses’ and their selection of acoustic covers delivered with more than a nod to humour seasoned with a dollop of sauce. They are now augmented, new & improved and re-branded as ‘Bandicoot’ and what’s more, they might even be called that on the night!

‘Chique’ are well known around the NW and play weddings and parties. Check out their website – Their wonderful close harmony versions of more recent hits provide a refreshing contrast to ‘The Codgers’ and ‘Bandicoot’’!

We are looking forward to a brilliant evening and all that remains is to fill the place!
