The Gig Book Of Pub Songs is the ideal way to learn all of those rousing anthems that are guaranteed to inspire a spirited sing-along. These handy Gig Books come with tough PVC covers and are an ideal size for stuffing in your gig bag for quick and easy access to the best classic songs ever.

The beauty of Pub Songs is the spirit and air of camaraderie with which they are sung. Some classics here that everybody knows and loves like Another Little Drink Wouldn't Do Us Any Harm, It's A Long Way To Tipperary, Pennies From Heaven will ensure that there's never a quiet moment in your favourite local. However, the problem with Pub Songs, is that after a few pints or Gin and Tonics, nobody can remember the lyrics, and the melody descends into a barely discernible drawl. Never fear, the Gig Book Of Pub Songs will ensure that you never forget any of the words and the melody will remain remembered for the entire night.

Other songs include Nellie The Elephant, You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, Abie My Boy and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. Each and every one of these is sure to incite a spirit of goodwill and a joyous togetherness in the crowd, harking back to those times when a pub singalong was not only encouraged, but mandatory. With a hard-wearing PVC cover, the Gig Book series is designed to withstand anything that you might throw at it, whether it's drops, dings or even spillages! 

You can be sure that this book of Pub Songs will last you for many uses, or as long as you last at the pub on the night!

Northumberland GB Absolute Beginner
Wrote a review on same book/publisher for "acoustic hits" so those comments and ratings apply here. I wanted this as it has several music hall tunes that I enjoy and wanted to try.
Nothing of note but the "acoustic hits" review is worth checking.

Littlehampton GB Amateur musician
Great book full of great tunes.
The print could be a little bolder, which would make it a little easier to read at a gig.

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Great collection and easy to read. Some of the tunes bring back memories

Customer Rating content was good,but disappointed when it arrived to find it was A5 size,would have been happy to pay extra to have it A4 size with each song on a single or double page.

Customer Rating Really useful book for sing songs at the old people's home, which I do regularly!
Excellent service from Musicroom as usual.

Customer Rating the mix of songs is very good and i think it is good value for money Unfortunatly i cannot play a musical insrument or read music so it was not suatable for my needs.I wanted just a songbook with words only to be able to sing to my residents in our residential home who suffer with dementia and altzimers and enjoy a good singalong to songs they can remember and relate to like the ones in this song book.Ideal for a person who reads and plays music

Customer Rating I searched in vain for a book with similar contents but written in full music manuscript. I was brought up to read music so chord symbols/names mean little to me. As I couldn't find one I settled for this.

The above said it is a good book for the price giving the words and melody line for 100 tunes which has been very useful for the small concerts I give in residential homes. I must admit that I was a little disappointed with some of the song choices. Whilst most of the tunes are well known some were quite obscure. That doesn't matter too much but it meant leaving out well known standards such as 'Side by side', 'If you were the only girl in the world' and 'I'm forever blowing bubbles', to mention just a few.
