Dear Live Music Fan,
 
COMING UP
 
31st JANUARY

WINDING ROAD  - CANCELLED
 
Sadly this gig has been cancelled. I put it to the band that from the numbers pre-booked the gig would not prove to be financially viable and they agreed. Sadly therefore they cancelled.
 
This really does call in to question my putting on bands somewhat outside of the "mainstream", which is a great shame.
 
Considering we have been very busy really from early December this has brought me back to earth with a bump!
 
Sadly this does of course call in to question my booking some "fringe" show in an attempt to bring some variety such as Julie July (Sandy Denny) and Fallen (Evanesence) and I do hope more people will book to come to these shows. I would like to try and bring some variety but people voting with their feet has to question this.
 
LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD
 
FRIDAY 7th FEBRUARY
 
HATS OFF TO LED ZEPPELIN
 
Fortunately this show is booking well as one might expect, and does, of course, allow us the chance to hear their new singer, who I am sure will be fine given the pedigree to date of the band.
 
As it says on the web site:
 
The Official UK No.1 tribute to the gods of Rock and Roll! Hats Off to Led Zeppelin are proud to be the only tribute act in the UK officially endorsed by Marshall amplifiers and they are managed by none other than Warren Grant … for the uninitiated, his father Peter was Led Zeppelin’s manager! “Hats Off to Led Zeppelin are the closest you are going to get” Warren said after first seeing the band!
 
 Close your eyes and let these four world class musicians take you back to when Led Zeppelin ruled the earth!
 
"If you want silly wigs and impersonations then go and see another band … if you want to experience the power and the passion of a Led Zeppelin concert, played by one of the most the most exciting Rock’n’Roll bands in the UK then pick up the phone and book your ticket to see this show now!  Why compromise?
 
Last year they voted best Led Zeppelin tribute in the UK at the National Tribute Awards for the seventh year running AND also won the prestigious award of best Tribute Band in the UK and the only choice for anything Zeppelin.  This is a show not to be missed!"
 
 
With glowing endorsements from Led Zeppelin’s tour manager Richard Cole – “Worth seeing … entertainment with style”; Led Zep biographer Dave Lewis – “a refreshing no nonsense approach … this band delivers every time!”; and the BBC – “an outstanding concert”, along with audience and critical acclaim – “Shut your eyes and you would think you were listening to the real thing”.
 
If you want to see one of the most exciting live acts around then book your ticket now!
 
Think you know tribute bands? Think again!
 
Whilst I would suggest an early booking I do not think it will sell out, but you never know.

TICKETS SITUATION GOING FORWARD
 
NOT SO SWEET
 
There are still plenty of spaces available for this show. Have an early meal for Valentines day and get down to us with your beloved for some 70's Glam. A Valentines night to remember!
 
CITY FUNK ORCHESTRA
 
This is looking busy and it MIGHT sell out (and I confess when I first booked them back in October 2017 I thought I might be "Taking a punt" so you just never know do you) so an early booking is advised.
 
Book now at https://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook.html
 
ABSOLUTE BOWIE
 
This remains Sold Out and an "Unofficial Waiting List" is in operation. See https://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/soldout.html to see how I manage a booking request now for a sold out show.
 
Historically I have managed to offer everyone who has booked after a sell out show a ticket….

Great show, great audience and we were packed. Thanks to everyone that came along.

TODAY I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO

See you soon and sorry about this Friday if you were planning to come, I guess everyone else is having a Brexit Party.
