Dear Live Music Fan
So with Xmas fast approaching at Tropic, we are about to get firmly
into "Party Mode" but before that we have left one "normal" gig. And
what a gig it will be.
FRIDAY 8th DECEMBER
UNCHAINED: The best of JOE COCKER live.
Below are some images with text telling you more about this fabulous
show and the pool of talent appearing in it.
I can tell you that this show will almost certainly be a ON-OFF
event, so if you miss it…..
This will be a MAINLY SEATED SHOW so there should be a seat for you
after a long week at work, or if you want to dance then there will
be plenty of space towards the rear of the room I am sure.
From the heady days of his Woodstock triumph and the now legendary
Mad Dogs And Englishman tour through to big time movie ballads and
interpretations of classic tunes, Unchained: The Best Of Joe Cocker
live covers all the elements of a classic career in music.
With a seven piece band full of top musicians, many of them have
played with legends themselves and made their own mark in the music
business, and fronted by British Blues Awards 2016 nominee Paul Cox,
a voice that many have compared to Mr Cocker himself, this is a show
paying homage, it's about the music of a great man.
Songs included: With A Little Help From My Friends, Delta Lady, The
Letter, You Are So Beautiful, Up Where We Belong, Feelin' Alright,
She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, Cry Me A River, Unchain My
Heart, Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.

LOOKING FURTHER AHEAD
FRIDAY 15th DECEMBER
THE BOHEMIANS (Play Queen)
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.
Their high-energy two hour show with full Staging, Lighting,
Backdrops and Pyrotechnics has earned them the reputation of being
the World’s most exciting Queen Tribute act.
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.
Book now at http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/ebook/index.htm and
please be aware this is usually a very popular night so an early
booking is advised.
I am sorry to say the The Zimmermen have had to cancel their date
for Saturday 10th March and re-scheduled to 10th August. I am
looking for another band to pop in on 10th March and will advise in
THE FLOYD EFFECT
Well what can I say about The Floyd Effect night? It went sold out
about 10 days before the gig and that status never changed! SOLD OUT
it was. Needless to say the room was busy and it goes without saying
that their show was both sonically and visually outstanding and
everyone left happy at about 1 a.m.
I am DELIGHTED to announce that The Floyd Effect will return on 7th
December 2018 and an early booking is advised, indeed quite a few
who were in last week and noticed the date on the programme I was
handing out have booked already!
PLEASE NOTE their gig on 7th December will still have more or less
the same second set (Dark Side) but the first set will, I am
advised, be very different.
We all got in to the Xmas party mood on Saturday with the delightful
Estrellas who really did have everyone dancing from the first number
to the last. A great fun night and I am sure if you came you enjoyed
There is presently no date in the diary for The Estrellas to return,
but I would not mind betting we see them in around 12 months……
I think that is all, whatever you do this weekend make sure you get
down to see UNCHAINED, like I said I do not think there will be
another opportunity to book this amazing project back to Tropic'.
See you soon
