Phase II and Friends in concert at Summerside church
Here Comes Summer concert takes place on May 20 at Trinity United
Phase II and Friends will take the stage at Summerside’s Trinity United Church on the afternoon of May 20 for a concert called Here Comes Summer.
The group promises two hours of lively, uplifting music covering a wide range of tastes from rock n’ roll to country to gospel.
The seven-piece group is made up of the original Phase II band with the addition of Keila Glydon and Jeanie Campbell.
“These ladies add a whole new dimension to the band,’’ said Gerry Hickey, lead singer. “There are so many songs featuring female vocalists which we are able to cover now. It gives our performances an even broader range. When they aren’t singing lead they both add great harmony to all of our songs.’’
The band also boasts another recent addition in Ed Young, a drummer who hails from Sault St. Marie, Ont.
This particular show will feature some summer tunes by the Beach Boys, the Everly Brothers and Clint Black. The audience will also hear songs from artists such as Sonny and Cher, Tom Jones, Johnny Reid, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.
Doors open at 1 p.m. with music beginning at 2 p.m.
Advance tickets are $10 and are available at the church office by calling 902-436-3155 or by calling Wendell at 902-4368600 or $12 at the door.
