( Formerly Lakota 5 ) Palooka 5 are a local ‘surf/garage’ band based in Taunton. Palooka 5 play 1960s ‘surf/garage’ music with an ‘Apocalypse Now’ twist. They try to use original vintage equipment where possible. Please see the links below to get a flavour of who they are and what they do. Try and catch them this summer at a local festival. Rock n Roll – Cut to the Bone!
“We are very excited to be involved with the ACT campaign. I can remember the likes of Elvis Costello and the Undertones playing at the Taunton Odeon in my youth. It’s so sad that there is no decent venue or promoter to make this happen in the county town again. We fully support Sam and Steve in their efforts and will do anything we can to help” – Tim Baigent
