“When we started out, the Commodore was the holy grail of venues. We had to persuade then-owner Drew Burns to let us in. He told us no band called “Doug and the Slugs” would ever play the Commodore,” remembers band member, Simon Kendall.
“Once in, we never looked back. In the mid-eighties we held the record for the most sold-out shows in Commodore history. The room has been a huge part of our life as a band, including our 25th anniversary in 2003, and hosting memorial events for Doug Bennett (2004) and Drew Burns (2014). The 5 surviving original Slugs and singer Ted Okos look forward to playing our favourite songs for generations of Slugmaniacs and seeing everyone achieve liftoff on that legendary dance floor!”
