Another Tropical storm on horizon for bands
Hayes FM presenter Hughie Dixon reviews the live band scene
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.
TROPICAL BENEFIT: Holy Faction
