Dear Live Music Fan
I trust this finds you well and all geared up for the festive
season. I am sure if nothing else all the snow that came down on
Sunday will have reminded you that Christmas is just around the
FRIDAY 15th DECEMBER
THE BOHEMIANS - A TRIBUTE TO QUEEN.
Last year there debut gig was packed, but this year we are looking
quite a lot less busy, worry not there will still be around 200 in
the room so there will be a cracking atmosphere but for some reason
we are not quite as busy….I have no idea why. Do you? Probably
office Xmas parties…cannot think of any other reason…..or can I??
The Bohemians, established in 1996, re-enact the glory days of Queen
including the Craziness of the 70’s and the Magic of the 80’s
proving themselves to be the most dynamic and exciting Queen Tribute
Band currently touring.
They have performed all over the UK, Europe and the World at
football stadiums, festivals, theatres and other prestigious venues.
The Bohemians in their majestic magnificence receive standing
ovations in response to their electrifying representation of a Queen
Rob Comber's outrageous stage antics and personality makes him the
perfect Freddie. Christopher Gregory's Red Special enables him to
get as close as possible to Brian May's inimitable style. Wayne
Bourne hammers the tubs like drummer Roger Taylor, and Kevin Goodwin
provides that unmistakable Queen backline on bass.
The Bohemians set includes all the piano driven hit singles: Killer
Queen; Somebody To Love; Don’t Stop Me Now; You’re My Best Friend;
We Are The Champions and the amazing award winning Bohemian
Rhapsody. These hits are balanced with the Guitar led anthems; Tie
Your Mother Down; Hammer To Fall; One Vision; I Want It All; We Will
Rock You and the Acoustic vocal tracks 39 and the unforgettable Love
of my Life. The Bohemians ability to recreate Queen live is
something truly special.
So, book now, and come down and join in the fun. Reserve you tickets
LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD
FRIDAY 22nd DECEMBER
COULD IT BE MAGIC:- WILL BRING US TAKE THAT AND THE JERSEY BOYS
(Their Take That set will be first)
Our last gig before Christmas and if you have not booked already and
are thinking of coming you really need to book NOW.
I am presently showing just 10 spaces available for this night and
whilst I normally fine turn bookings once a gig becomes sold out on
this occasion I will not be able to as I will be on holiday in the
week leading up to it, so once it flags up as sold out I will
struggle to change it should spaces become available by dint of
Could it be Magic have been together an performing as a Take That
Tribute Show since 2007 and have worked extensively all over the UK
and at times have "Ruled the World" performing in Europe and beyond.
The list of clients they have performed for is almost endless but
include Butlins, Pontins, Copthorn Hotels and Hilton Hotels as well
as corporate events for the likes of Macdonalds and Colgate.
They have also shared the billing with Lamar, The Cheeky Girls and
Peter André and been performing at events with members of the casts
of Hollyoaks, Strictly Come Dancing and Coronation Street as well as
various "Party in the Park" type events.
Could it be Magic will take you on the full Take That journey from
their beginnings and early songs such as Relight My Fire, Everything
Changes But You and Never Forget and then bring it right up to date
with more recent material.
As a Take That tribute they are somewhat unique as two members have
actually performed with Gary Barlow himself...having made it through
to Boot Camp on X-Factor in 2012.
Come and see the band soon and you will have your "Greatest Day".
Tribute to the sounds of the Four Seasons and the long running West
With hits like Oh What a Night, Big Girls Don't Cry and songs from
the movie Grease and Dirty Dancing, we might even get a bit of Bee
Gees thrown in to the mix as well, what is not to like? Bring your
dance shoes!! Floor filler after floor filler...after floor filler.
Book now at
http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm and it is
only £12 admission if you have reserved.
EVEN FURTHER AHEAD
FRIDAY 29th DECEMBER
GIMMIE ABBA - ALMOST SOLD OUT.
As I type there are 16 spaces remaining. BOOK NOW if you want to
THE LONDON ZAPPA COLLECTIVE
Replacing The Zimmermen who had to move their gig to August I have
decided to really push back the boundaries of what might be
considered mainstream and have arranged for The London Zappa
Collective to pay us a visit. I am sure anyone who knows any Frank
Zappa will be hot footing it to Ruislip, so that makes an audience
of around 10 people for this gig.
If, like me, you do not really know the work of Mr Zappa beyond the
song Bobby Brown (search for it on You Tube - but be warned it is
very rude) then maybe a chance to open your ears to something VERY
Maybe this might be a better bet

15th TO 22nd DECEMBER
As mentioned above I will not be around in the office after the
Bohemians gig this Friday up to the Could It Be Magic one on 22nd
December and will be running the bookings off my phone, which is
never that easy. It follows that if you want a timely confirmation
of your booking for the next two gigs you really should book NOW.
UNCHAINED:- THE BEST OF JOE COCKER LIVE
Firstly I hope you all had a good chuckle at the typo in my message
last week when I described this as an "ON-OFF Event", it should have
been "ONE-OFF" of course. Hey ho, there is nothing worse than trying
to proof read your own work….
Anyway, whilst it may well have been a ONE OFF event, what an event
it was!! Sadly witnessed by one of the smallest audiences seen at
Tropic for many years I cannot think of one person who came who
would not ask me to re-book the show. It really was that good.
You missed a total delight if you were not there, and a lot were
conspicuous by their absence. Such a shame.
I think that is about all.
See you soon
No update next week as I am on holiday - have a
