Saturday 4th August 2018
South Beach Sessions | Reception Room | Troon Concert Hall
An evening celebrating two of Scotland’s greatest musical exports, Deacon Blue and Simple Minds.
World established tribute band, Simple Minded, bring you a sensational double bill packed with hits. Kicking things off will be a set of classic Deacon Blue songs including Real Gone Kid, Wages Day, Dignity and much more. The evening will culminate with Simple Minded’s renowned renditions of hits from Simple Minds, arguably the biggest band to come out of the country. Expect to hear Waterfront, Don’t You, Alive and Kicking and also some surprises for fans of the band’s amazing back catalogue.
South Beach Sessions found it's new home during WinterStorm Rock Festival Weekend when we set up a stage, a bar and full PA into the "Reception Room" overlooking the beach and prom in Troon Concert Hall. Not only has it the most spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde and the occasional breathtaking sunset it also feels like a real venue! It will be used as standing only, seated and mixed depending on the event taking place and we have 24 nights booked for 2018 already with a mix of rock, folk, bluegrass, Americana, blues, tributes and comedy to come before the end of the year.
The bar is professionally provided by The Harbour Bar in Troon and will offer draft beer as well as bottles, spirits and wines. It is for the moment over 18's only but we are hoping that we can develop the family friendly music theme as we move forward.
The room has a 1980's Student Union feel about it and we're happy with that vibe. Great sound, great views, great artistes. All we need to make it work in the longer terms is YOU!
