An­other Trop­i­cal storm on hori­zon for bands

Hayes FM pre­sen­ter Hughie Dixon re­views the live band scene

Harefield Gazette - - LEISURE -

ONCE again I’m put­ting the feel­ers out for mu­si­cal acts of all sorts to join Tropic FM TV for an­other night of tele­vised good vi­bra­tions at the Crown and Treaty pub, Ox­ford Road, Uxbridge, on Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 23.

Their last ven­ture back in Oc­to­ber 2016 went down a storm both at the venue and via a live in­ter­net stream.

This meant fans and friends alike could watch the bands and solo artists strut­ting their prover­bial stuff from any­where on the planet.

Lo­cal artists Holy Fac­tion, Polly PikPock­etz, Man­dolin Mon­day and Sec­tioned have all ben­e­fited from the ex­po­sure Trop­i­cal FM TV have pro­vided and now the guys are look­ing to the re­peat the magic.

This time they have even re­fined their broad­cast­ing tech­niques to a per­fect tee with up­dated tech­nol­ogy, so if you are part of a band do­ing orig­i­nal ma­te­rial or you are a singer/song­writer look­ing for an out­let, then add me (Hughie Roi Dixon) on Face­book and send me a link to your mu­sic.

Mean­while, check out Trop­i­cal FM TV at www.trop­i­calfm.net.

On a sad­der note, Sun­day Fe­bru­ary sees the end of an era for lo­cal mu­sic and mu­si­cians of all ages. The Blues Bar, West Dray­ton will hold its last ever jam ses­sion.

I think I speak for many as I pay my re­spects to its his­tory for host­ing live mu­sic not only as The Blues Bar but also in its pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tions, es­pe­cially The En­gine.

So con­sider this an­other call to arms for mu­si­cians to con­verge on the Blues Bar on Sta­tion Road, West Dray­ton on Sun­day in mem­ory of all who graced its boards be­fore and to give the pub a swan song the lo­cals will never for­get.
