Tonight The Bungalow have a tribute to the music of one of Scotland’s top bands, because The Deacon Blues are back in Paisley with their legendary Tribute to Deacon Blue. The band are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the trailblazing ‘Raintown’ Album. The show will feature the entire album, in the order of the original track-listing.

The album was released in 1987 and is widely praised as Deacon Blue’s finest work. It has overtones of a concept album, relating to the struggles of urban life in the inner city. The city being unmistakable Glasgow.

Deacon Blues have played all over the UK to fantastic acclaim, whipping festival audiences into a frenzy, singing along with every word, with their authentic reproduction of the greatest hits, such as Chocolate Girl, Fergus Sings the Blues, Real Gone Kid, Dignity and MANY MORE! Deacon Blues is the only Deacon Blue tribute band hailing from Scotland! Being based there, they are immersed in the iconic songs and emotions behind them, carrying this into every performance! You can get tickets on the door from 7pm.

Tomorrow afternoon the popular Big Band Sessions continue with The Bobby Deans Big Band. Doors are 1pm.

Tomorrow evening The Bungalow have another cracking tribute night as one of the biggest tribute bands in the UK The Complete Stone Roses are back for another sell out show. The Complete Stone Roses are one of the UK’s most well-known, most seen, and most successful tribute bands. Selling out venues across the UK and Ireland regularly, they have helped to carry on the music of one of the UK’s most influential bands – The Stone Roses.

The Stone Roses played a pivotal role in the history of the UK’s indie music scene. Famous hits like Fools Gold, I Am The Resurrection and I Wanna Be Adored are as recognisable now as were the heyday of Madchester and the Hacienda, the cultural icons from which the original band were born.

Even original Stone Roses band members.
