LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD
FRIDAY 25th OCTOBER
Fleetwood Bac have been rated by The Times newspaper as one of the U.K.’s top 5 tribute shows with rave reviews in ‘The Stage’ newspaper, fantastic endorsements from the U.K.s leading Fleetwood Mac fansites, the official Stevie Nicks website; and they have had ecstatic audiences wherever the band have played, including wowing audiences as far afield as St. Tropez and the Cayman Islands, Monte Carlo and Dubai.
A Fleetwood Bac tribute show isn’t just about performing the music of one of the worlds biggest bands, Fleetwood Bac replicate a full Fleetwood Mac rock show as it was back in the 70′s & 80′s. Having performed over 600 tribute shows Fleetwood Bac have spent decades perfecting that classic Rumours era sound, the look, the mystical atmosphere and that infamous on-stage chemistry, all are portrayed with the passion and energy that got them the ultimate seal of approval from ‘Big Daddy’ Mick Fleetwood.
Fans also include original Mac bassist and biographer the late great Bob Brunning who joined the band several times on stage, and Peter Green’s official biographer Martin Celmins. The band were honoured when original Mac guitarist Peter Green came to see them perform and were delighted to spend time with one of their heroes after the show.
The Fleetwood Bac tribute show also features several songs from the Peter Green days, plus some of Stevie’s biggest solo hits, in either a theatrical 2-hour show, including costume-changes and an acoustic section, or a one-hour Greatest Hits Show, specially tailored for corporate events.
If you love Fleetwood Mac this is the tribute show you cannot afford to miss!!

NEW GIG BOOKED IN
WE REMEMBER JOE COCKER
After much arm twisting I (and I would suggest several others) have persuaded Paul Cox to run this show for another year and I am delighted to have it booked in for 18th September 2020. I would suggest this will be your last chance to catch it at Ruislip and if you have never seen it then I urge you to pop it in your diary NOW!
We had two new shows grace us last
weekend. Both shows were really good fun although we actually were
not that busy.
I would suggest both shows might return but Daniel East is a nightmare to pin down a date for he is so busy and in such demand…..watch this space.
I think that is all, do try and come and see us this weekend. We are not looking that busy so there should be room to sit should you wish.
See you soon
