Raw, heartfelt lyrics and seducing vocals that coarse and delicately line the pulsating sound of acoustic guitar, double bass and percussion - Dodobones are local favourites on the pub music scene and well worth catching. As well as their own songs, the band are known for their ironic pop, pastiche interpretations of well-known numbers.

The Garibaldi is a fine example of a back-street local, in the heart of Sopwell near the cathedral. It serves an extensive range of Fuller's ales and the landlord has won the Fuller's Master Cellarman award.
