One of the UK’s top 10 tribute bands comes to Eastbourne this Friday as Stayin Alive perform at Bandstand on the Beach.
Featured in industry paper The Stage as their top 10 tribute act to watch, the band have a remarkable likeness for the brothers Gibb, appearing frequently in TV, film and in the West End, and regularly touring their show all around the world.
The band were created over 14 years ago after band member Jimmy appeared as Robin Gibb on Stars in Their Eyes to rave reviews in the national press. The band were formed and now perform the trio’s massive catalogue of hits including Night Fever, Tragedy, How Deep is Your Love and early favourite Massachusetts.
Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley said “The Bee Gees have spanned 5 decades in the charts, writing for many other pop stars along the way and covered by countless artists in recent years, so there is something for all ages in this concert. From early ballads through to 70’s disco and 90’s pop, this is true family entertainment!”
Bandstand on the Beach also opens on 20 May for a free Sunday afternoon concert with South Berkshire Concert Band. The award winning band, who picked up Gold in their category at the 2010 National Concert Band Festival, feature both modern and traditional wind band arrangements, original compositions, films, classical, solo items and more.
The new beach venue includes a temporary stage next to the Bandstand with deckchair seating, a wheelchair viewing area and a bar. On Friday night the seating area will open at 7pm with the performance starting at 8pm. The performance on Sunday is free and begins at 3pm.
