New band Not Tonight Josephine
New band Not Tonight Josephine

Not Tonight Josephine is a brand new band featuring a line-up of well loved old rockers from the local scene.

Lead guitarist Barry Monks – on permanent loan from Moose on the Loose – quipped: “We’re a five piece band with more experience than we care to say, covering all types and musical styles from the swinging 60s right up to modern chart toppers.”

They’re appearing at Sundon Park Social Club on Sunday (March 9) and members are guaranteed a night of music and merriment.

Two original Moose members have been joined by lead vocalist Jo and bass guitarist Phil from Next Chapter as well as Mick from The Simply Vantage Band on keyboards and guitar.

Barry, who’s backed legendary guitarist Bert Weedon and 1960s songbird Kathy Kirby, said: “We’re all still alive and kicking, in spite of our great age.”

Known as Luton’s liveliest cover band, they like nothing better than playing their own particular brand of rhythm and blues to an appreciative audience.

Moose on the Loose were renowned for their Python-esque humour and it continues to be a large part of the new outfit’s act.

“This is only our third gig,” Barry confessed.

They have a busy schedule ahead with bookings at The Waggon & Horses in Barton, the Stevenage Club and Institute, Crawley Green Sports & Social Club and Stotfold Conservative Club.

The band are equally at home playing small intimate venues or big clubs.
