Tropic At Ruislip News and Views

(Updated 25th July 2022)

Dear Live Music Fan,
So having signed off last week saying that I might send the odd e-mail out during the summer break here I am sending one out even earlier in the week than usual.
(Please note this e-mail was written on 24th July)
NEWS – some important!
I am sorry to say that Hoaxwind, who were due to play for us on 23rd September, have cancelled their show and, for the time being at least, I do not think they are gigging. What a shame.
Instead of Hoaxwind on 23rd September we will now see the return of Free’s Company, our brilliant tribute to all things Free and Band Company.
I did indicate that I would get them back at some point with the usual Friday PA system but sadly that is not available for this show but they are going to be bringing along something larger than the one they brought last time which did struggle a bit in the first set until some adjustments were made in the interval.
So, if you like a little bit of Free and Bad Company you know what to do. Book now at or your usual web links.
Bruce Juice have moved their return date with us for next year and will now be back on 30th June and not 19th May as previously in the diary.
Well I could not think of a better band to close us off for our summer break and they put on their usual thoroughly entertaining show. Thanks to everyone that came, I could see folk up dancing almost from the off and the groans around the room when we hit the midnight curfew for them to finish were deafening (well you know what I mean).
One wonderful thing was that everyone who had booked and said they were coming turned up (or cancelled – which is fine).  This of course meant the bar was staffed correctly and gave you, the customer, the best service possible.
I thought it such a good way to close out before a summer break that we are going to do it all again next year and I have booked them in to return on Friday 21st July 2023.

Book now at or your usual web links!
I can promise you there will be no more e-mails until 10th August and then only if I have anything to report.
See you soon (but not soon enough).
