Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies

Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies are a three piece from Liverpool. Pete on Guitar, Marigoldy on Bass and Gabrielle Fray Bentos on Drums. They also feature John ‘The Caretaker’ Lewis on saxophone and clarinet. They are at the vanguard of current Liverpool underground music scene.

The band was formed in 2006. Pete wanted to form a band that was a pure rock & roll band with modern lyrics about real life.  They have clever, witty songs about working class life that feature night club bouncers, lorry drivers, cats and dogs and always telling the truth. The music is raw punk rock and roll reminiscent of the The Cramps, The Fall and the Velvet Underground.

They have so far released two albums, toured the UK and Europe and have played many festivals including Rebellion Festival, the largest punk festival in the world alongside bands such as The Damned, The Beat and the New York Dolls.

A band who actually sing about things they know and believe in and always with sense of humour. This is Kitchencore!

“Classic Liverpool Rock & Roll. Songs about things you’ve observed and experienced. Fun and upbeat” SOUND CITY

"A band that has something serious to say. Reminds us that protest music can still be fun"

“Classic. These songs could be sung into hairbrushes from Birkenhead to Bangkok” SLACKER SOUNDS
