Bob Dylan probably can’t remember how to play the thousands of songs he crafted, banged out and hit sublime heights with in his career, but a devoted band promise that if you want to hear a track, they will do their best to perform it for you.

The Bob Villains, who play their first ever gig in Baldock next Friday night, reckon they have a repertoire vast enough to do the job.

“From acoustic days through to that Judas moment, Rolling Thunder and beyond, the Bob Villains Let The Good Times Roll on Desolation Row and promise Fun Fun Fun on Highway 61,” singer Gary Sear said.

“When Dylan called himself a song and dance man, he wasn’t joking.”

You’ll find some of their whopping track list at – but if you can’t find what you want to hear, drop them an email and they promise to do their best to meet your request.

I want Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues please.

The four-piece play The Rose and Crown on March 30 and its free.
