Twenty years of Mary Christmas from Aberdeen’s first tribute band

Twenty years of Mary Christmas from Aberdeen’s first tribute band

Aberdeen's first, favourite and funniest tribute act The Bloody Marys celebrate their 20th anniversary with a return to The Lemon Tree on Saturday, December 13, with their annual Christmas show.

The transvestite trio will once again revive their risqué Christmas set to delight their loyal following of fans. As well as their off the wall Yuletide classics, the band will of course pay tribute to the classics from Abba and The Rocky Horror Show to their legendary Take That routines (dance moves included!).

Singer Ian Gray said: "Our Christmas Show is always special, but for it to kick off our 20th year, it's going to be a special night. We promise all the old nonsense, and some new surprises as well with the help of Aberdeen audio visual specialists A-Line."

The band – vocalist Ian Gray, guitarist Barry Dodds and keyboard player Steve Morrison – have been wowing crowds since their reformation in 2011.

Originally a regular fixture on Aberdeen's gig circuit in the 90s, their Christmas shows once sold out the Capitol Theatre and in 1995 they won the title of Holsten Pils band of the year.

Tickets for The Bloody Marys Christmas Stocking 2014 on Saturday, December 13, cost £16.50 are available online at, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty's Theatre.
