Tonight The Bungalow has a rescheduled event, MacMuse a Muse Tribute and they are looking forward to playing the gig in Paisley after a long wait. The band are made up of Muse fans who decided it was time for Scotland to finally have some Muse music to enjoy at a smaller scale than the real thing. From Showbiz to Simulation Theory, a blistering light and sound feast is guaranteed. Doors are at 7pm and tickets are £7 on the door.
Tomorrow afternoon The Blue Mantras are back at The Bungalow for their second time and it would have been more if it wasn’t for the pandemic. So it’s nice to see them back in Paisley to play a set of classic songs from artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. The quartet comprises vocals, keys, double bass and drums. They will be playing from 2pm and the gig is free.
After the jazz in the afternoon, The Bungalow has a double bill of rock featuring The Alex Harvey Experience and The Sell Out. The ‘Experience’ pay tribute to The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and their original trademark distinctive stage costumes: Harvey wore vaudeville-like clothes and his trademark striped shirt, while Zal Cleminson assumed the identity of a “mime” in full make-up and green-yellow jumpsuit. The set covers a wide range of songs from their succession of highly regarded albums from the 1970s such as Faith Healer, Next and Boston Tea Party. The Sell-Out are a Who tribute band and play all the best The Who has to offer with a few from the renowned operas Tommy and Quadrophenia written by Pete Townsend. Doors are at 7pm and tickets are £12.
On Sunday The Bungalow are throwing open their stage to anyone that wants to perform or jam. Organisers Johnny Barr and Erin Hephzibah told me “We’re excited to announce our new Weekly Open Stage and House Band” It starts at 3pm and is Free Entry. All ages welcome to take part.
