Title

Tributes to Queen and Jimi Hendrix
 

Dear Live Music Fan,

 

I trust this finds you well.

 

COMING UP

 

FRIDAY 14th JUNE

 

THE BOHEMIANS (play Queen)

 

As I have mentioned before this gig is SOLD OUT and as I type it remains so.

BUT there MIGHT be some later availability so do keep an eye on the web site for any changes.

 

Please note this is the ONLY way tickets will be released I DO NOT OPERATE A WAITING LIST SYSTEM for returns.

 

LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD

 

FRIDAY 21st JUNE

 

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?

 

Well every cloud has a silver lining I guess and I will, given that my holiday has been cancelled, now at least get the chance to see the brilliant John Campbell with his take on Jimi Hendrix.

 

As it says on the web site:

 

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? are now in their 23rd year (2019), and during that time they have become widely regarded as one of the best tribute shows on the circuit.

 

Guitarist John Campbell bears more than just a passing resemblance to Jimi, and has drawn upon many years of playing in different bands and exploring various styles to perfect his ‘Hendrix’ persona. When he plays his Strat behind his head and with his teeth, it brings a smile to the face of even the most finicky Hendrix fan.

 

As with any three piece rock band the rhythm section provides the all important foundation which allows John to improvise freely.

 

After playing together for over 20 years, Mark Arnold on bass guitar and Kevin O’Grady on drums are two of the best musicians around for this job. Kevin with his busy drumming style and Mark with his solid bass lines make up the Are You Experienced? sound.

 

Audience participation is always welcomed at gigs, and John inviting the ladies on stage to join the band for “Foxy Lady” has become an almost legendary part of their stage show.

 

The band like to throw in some of Jimi’s lesser known album tracks as well as the favourites to help keep the “die hard” fans happy, but if you’re a Jimi Hendrix fan, there’s something for everyone.

 

“Unnervingl Accuracy”

“GUITARIST”

 

“The sound that came from his guitar was genuine talent”

“SUNDAY TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE”

 

“Wow! I mean Wow!”

-----------------------------

 

John (Campbell) has not been well and had to undergo a heart operation but I am assured he is now fighting fit and raring to go!

PIANO MAN

 

I am delighted to announce that the brilliant Piano Man, who bring us the music of Billy Joel, will return on 22nd May 2020. I cannot think of a band who, on their first appearance, went down so well at Tropic' and I have lost count of the number of times I have been asked to try and get them back.

With Jules (the lead singer) also being in The New Amen Corner getting a date booked was not easy but he has managed to squeeze us in between other gigs. Bookings are now being taken and if you did not see them the first time around I can tell you that you missed a treat.

 

LOOKING BACK

 

Well we did not have the largest crown in for The sCOPYons and SYKED last Friday. I can tell you that the sCOPYons were their usual brilliant selves and SYKED were really quite a revelation. So musically a brilliant night, just a shame a few more didn't come. Will they return? Well sadly not in 2020 and going forward who knows?

 

 

I think that is all, see you soon.

 

 

Philip
