The Bastard Sons of Dennis

The Bastard Sons of Dennis is a duo which features Q. Wim Lijkkes, who plays acoustic guitar and sings, and Yuri Nation, who plays acoustic guitar and grunts. Howeve, when they are performing Blue Oyster Cult covers, they are replaced by BOC specialists Derek Broom, who plays acoustic guitar and sings, and Chuck Palmer, who plays acoustic guitar and grunts. They have been described as “arguably among the finest acoustic Blue Oyster Cult cover duos in the EX4 area (excluding Pinhoe).”

Besides playing an extensive selection of Blue Oyster Cult covers, they also perform original songs which are amusing, touching and groovetastic in equal measures. Both Lijkkes and Nation are acclaimed virtuosos and have enjoyed lengthy careers in the music industry with many other acts.

After a recent performance at Exeter’s Fuel Cafe, Greg – the owner of the venue – said that The Bastard Sons of Dennis “always fail to disappoint” and a punter named Alex from Pinhoe added that they were “not bad”.

You might catch a performance by The Bastard Sons of Dennis at a live music venue or an open mic night in or reasonably close to Exeter. If you haven’t seen them yet, you really should as they are highly entertaining to see live on stage as well as being uber-talented musicians.
