Tonight, is the second sold out show for Deke McGee at The Bungalow. Mark ‘Deke’ McGee started playing Saxophone at the age of thirteen, after hearing Bill Doggetts ‘Honky Tonk’ played by the legendary Clifford Scott. He began studying the sound and the stylings of all the great Swing and Rhythm n’ Blues horn men of that era; such as Arnett Cobb, Illinois Jacquet, Herschel Evans, Lee Allen, Sil Austin, Red Prysock, Big Al Sears, Plas Johnson, Sam ‘the man’ Taylor and the great Texas Tenor King Curtis. Get in quick for tickets if you want to catch him next time. Support is singer song writer Ann Gair.

Outside The Original is an exciting project by James Finnigan of Hue and Cry and Stiltskin fame. This 6-piece band faithfully reproduces timeless masterpieces from the giants of progressive rock, performing a selection of classics by: Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd and Rush – the ultimate evening of prog rock.

James was telling me that they are delighted to be playing live at The Bungalow Paisley for the very first time, and hope that the local Paisley ‘Proggers’ will come along to enjoy our show. This is one not to be missed, the set list is full of all the best that Prog Rock has to offer and a few surprises. I’ve heard them in rehearsals, and I think they sound fantastic. Maybe I’m biased because I’m a big fan, so why don’t you pop in and judge for yourself. Tickets are on the door tomorrow night from 7pm.
