Dear Live Music Fan
PLEASE NOTE THIS E-MAIL WAS WRITTEN ON 10th JULY
As this e-mail was written well in advance of the date of being sent
it will contain no jokes, as sadly anything could have happened
between my writing it and it being sent - we could have won the

FRIDAY 20th JULY
On 20th July we have an absolute classic and a "must see" night for
anyone who is a fan of T-Rex, Tyrannosaurus Rex or Glam Rock. That
said dare I say this could e an interesting night for anyone who
actually does not know T-Rex very well as this show, with two bands,
and starting early at 9 pm will take you on the full history of the
Tyrannosaurus Jed performs songs from Marc Bolan's acoustic albums
and many T.Rex songs.
'As a mimic of Bolan he's unparalled.' Paul Du Noyer, NME.
A typical set list
Wind Quartets, Seal of Seasons, One Inch Rock, Conesula, Salamanda
Palaganda, The Wizard
The Children of Rarn Suite , Cat Black the Wizards Hat, King of the
Rumbling Spires, King of the Mountain Cometh, Elemental Child.
TooREX (featuring the incredible Bobby T as Marc Bolan) bring back
the Glam Rock era of the early seventies with a spell binding show
that covers the whole of Marc Bolan’s career from the early hippy
period of Tyrannosaurus Rex to the megastar, chart topping days of
T-Rex. Complete with full costume changes, glitter and more than a
dash of star quality, TooREX come incredibly close to the real
This full nostalgic concert includes some early singles such as
“Deborah”, “One Inch Rock” and “Ride A White Swan” to the big hits
“Get It On”,
“Telegram Sam”, “Hot Love”, “Metal Guru”, “Jeepster” and “Children
of the Revolution”, to some of the fondly remembered album material.
The show also features a selection of T-Rex tracks such as (“I Love
to Boogie”, Cosmic Dancer” etc) that were featured in the Award
winning box-office smash movie Billy Elliot!!
Marc Bolan look-alike vocalist Bobby T spent years in awe of his
late hero, before he finally took to the stage to pay his own
“It was a case of going from being a fan to fronting a band that
recreates T-Rex as accurately as possible. I always wanted to do it,
but it took some talented musical connections and friends to push me
into it, and we’ve never looked back since.” he added proudly.
With sell-out shows, and a Glam revival in full blossom, there’s
never been a better time to grab your spaceball-shoes and feather
boas and relive the legend of Marc Bolan and T-Rex.

selling music artist of all time, and a singer/songwriter that has
forged his position as number 1 commentator on American life. From
'Piano Man' to 'River of Dreams', his tightly structured songs have
been embedded in the psyche of music lovers, not only in Joel's USA,
Since forming in 2015, Jules Benjamin & the Big Shots have wowed
audiences with their energetic and faithful live recreation of this
most enviable of songbooks, recreating the live excitement whilst
always showing deep respect for the intricacies and detail of the
With soaring, articulate vocals, smouldering saxophone, and a
pile-driving rhythm section, all of the elements that characterise
Joel's recorded and live repertoire are present.
