Wednesday 5th February ~ Des Bishop Mia Mamma

Des Bishop Sold Out

Des Bishop - Mia Mamma - I am often asked “where do you get your material from?” The truth is really that I try to see the funny in everything. My mother died in March 2019 and of course it was sad and grief can be tough sometimes but I saw a lot of funny in that too. Since death comes to us all and grief is something most of us will experience I thought there must be plenty of people who would like that funny to be shared. Also I did a show about my Dad being sick back in 2010 and I couldn’t face my mother in the afterlife because I know her first question would be “your Father got a show, how come I didn’t get one?”

  • I think it’s tougher to lose your mum. My Dad was best supporting actor. My mother was the actress in a leading role. You are never ready when the star of the show dies. So this is a show about My mother. It’s a show about motherhood and sacrifice, anxiety and grief, the mistakes you make as a mother and a son and the hard road to forgiveness and finally it’s about loss, grief and the chaos that surrounds it.

    Where do I get my material from?

Saturday 21st March ~ Standback The Stevie Nicks Experience

Abbey Standback Pic

StandBack: The Stevie Nicks Experience is made up of some of Ireland’s most talented and passionate musicians. The band has played together for a number of years in highly successful covers bands throughout Ireland, Europe & America. But it wasn’t until a number of Fleetwood Mac songs were introduced into their set that the likeness between lead singer Vikki’s voice and the Queen of Rock & Roll Stevie Nicks became really apparent. Every time the band would perform hits like Rhiannon or Edge of 17 audience members would comment on the likeness between the two voices.

  • read more
  • So, after a few gigs the band decided to put together a small tribute to the music of Stevie Nicks. “We were adamant from the start that it wouldn’t be your average ‘Tribute Show’ said the band. Rather, wanting to portray a classy & authentic show. From the beginning they opted out of the traditional Wigs and Costume route and kept things as realistic as possible! In doing so they created one of the most authentic tributes to the life and music of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood around today. Incorporating stage graphics and sound bites of Stevie herself this show brings the listener on a musical journey. Add to that, the bands natural chemistry on stage and you have all the ingredients of a magical and amazing night to remember. The show has been receiving rave reviews and praise across the board since its conception in 2016. Most notably for their acoustic cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Gypsy which has over 20,000 views online to date. With some people commenting that Vikki is the closest thing to Stevie you can hear without listening to the real thing. But don’t just take our word for it; come see them live and judge for yourself.....
