Title

Two bands for a tenner this Friday and the brilliant Fleetwood Bac return to Tropic At Ruislip

Dear Live Music Fan

 

COMING UP

 

FRIDAY 19th OCTOBER

 

GUITAR GODZ and QUEENS OF ROCK

 

NOTE

 

This show has an early start with Guitar Godz on at 9 p.m.

 

ADMISSION IS ONLY £10 PRE-BOOKED AND THAT HAS TO BE A BARGAIN!!

=======================================

 

This is actually a top quality theatre show doing a short club circuit and should not be missed as I suspect we will not see it again!! It will be a seated show with space to dance towards the rear of the room.

 

=======================================

 

GUITAR GODZ

 

A fully live show dedicated to a generation of guitar icons. Jimi Hendrix, Steve Vai, Jeff Healey, Prince, Eric Clapton, Brian May and Slash are just some of the guitarists of the last three decades you will have the chance to experience in one amazing show!

 

QUEENS OF ROCK

 

The worlds greatest tribute show dedicated to female rock legends and powerhouse vocalists of the last four decades.

 

With three of the UKs most experienced and in demand Rock singers the show takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride of the most famous hits by artists such as Cher, Bonnie Tyler, Heart, Pat Benatar, Pink, Tina Turner, Blondie, Stevie Nicks and many more...

 

With full live band, outstanding costumes and stage presence the 'Queens' will be a sure ’hit’ with audiences of all ages.

 

NOTES

 

This will be a SEATED SHOW so please try and get in early to bag the best places. There will still be room for those that prefer to stand and/or dance around the sides and to the rear of the room.

 

PRE-BOOKED IT IS ONLY £10

 

Pre book your tickets now at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm or your usual web links.

 

LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD

 

FRIDAY 26TH OCTOBER

 

FLEETWOOD BAC

 

A welcome return to this brilliant band.

 

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!!

 

The show is booking well and an early reservation is recommended at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm or your usual web links.

 

NEWS

 

WILLIE NILE

 

I am sorry to say that Willie Nile will NOT be able to visit us next year during his short tour of the UK. I offered several dates but none seemed to suit. Shame.

 

TEST YOUR REMOTE

 

Nothing to do with music but here is a great tip I learned recently! You know how it is, you press a button on the remote control and nothing happens.

So is it the remote control? Just that button on the remote control? The batteries? Or even a shaft of sunlight through the window interfering with the signal? You have no way of knowing so the first thing you do is hunt out new batteries, we have all been there.

Well here is a tip that might save you lots of head scratching. Get your smart phone and turn on the camera. Point your remote at the lens (the little bit on the remote that looks like a bulb), press any button and you will see the LED flash a purplish blink on your phone screen if it is working. Your phone camera can see infrared! Try it with a remote now.

 

Best of all now you have been told this and tried it you will NEVER forget it!

 

FACEBOOK

 

I have been paying for some adverts on Facebook which target those who "Like" my page and their "Friends". I wonder if you are seeing the advert? There is not much point in targeting the local area as according to Facebook Ruislip is in Slough!

 

NEW GIG BOOKED

 

I am pleased to announce that I have booked a new show for Tropic', in the form of Manoeuvres a tribute to OMD. Sadly for OMD fans you will have to wait a whole year as they are not appearing until 11th October 2019, but bookings are now being taken!

 

ONE-OFF SHOWS

 

Please do try and support show where the bands are playing music that you might not be that familiar with as, by the laws of economics, bands that do not draw a decent crowd become reluctant to return. I often say that the best shows are witnessed by the smallest audiences.

Sometimes through determination I will drag a band back that has not pulled that many but if that fails at the second hurdle then usually that is it.

 

Look at the astonishing tribute to Prince that came in twice, they are now playing big theatres and sadly will not be gracing us again, had the place been rockin' when they appeared I am sure they would have come back, just like say The Floyd Effect. We are the ONLY small venue they (TFE) play because they love the intimacy of the room with the audience and the atmosphere.

 

Just come to these shows where you may not know what you are coming to hear…and start with the Ian Parker Band on 2nd November.

 

LOOKING BACK

 

PRIESTHOOD

 

We had a fairly small audience but boy were they enthusiastic!! I have never known such love spreading for the room to the stage. Thanks to everyone that came down. Will they be back? Well I guess the comments above may well apply!

 

I think that is all.
