Tommy McGrory of Loud ‘n’ Proud tells you what’s happening in Paisley this week.
Tomorrow night (Saturday 10 March) is Rock Night at The Bungalow because LOMRE – or rather the Linton Osborne Maximum Rock Experience – will be taking you on a journey filled with Rock classics that you know and love.
Linton sang with Nazareth the top Scottish Rockers and he is making an appearance here in Paisley. Osborne had performed a number of live shows with Nazareth during 2014, but some concerts were cancelled at the end of the year after he contracted a throat infection.
The future looked pretty grim for Linton with band leader Pete Agnew reporting: “Although Linton is showing a slight improvement, his voice is in no condition to perform satisfactorily at this time.”
Luckily he is over the scare and he is back doing what he is good at, belting out rock tunes out at the front of a band.
LOMRE play The Bungalow on Saturday 10 March. Tickets are £8 and starts at 8pm.
Grace Stumberg – who learned the ways of the touring world by working with folk legend Joan Baez as a guitar tech and personal assistant – performs at The Bungalow on Sunday (11 March).
She has toured with musicians such as Left On Red and Pete Mroz, singing songs to bring awareness to fair-trade movements and raising money for local food banks.
Her live performances consistently demonstrate her musical abilities, incorporating a wide range of cover songs as well as her own originals.
Grace Stumberg plays The Bungalow on Sunday 11 March. Tickets are £3.
