You can’t see the Bee Gees anymore, but you can see ‘Nights on Broadway’ and still experience a concert of the incredible music written by the brothers Gibb.

Known also as ‘The Irish Bee Gees’, all the performers are from Emerald Isle with the exception of their new UK Musical Director, JBlack. Having originated and sold out theatres in Ireland, the show is now touring in the UK.

‘Nights On Broadway’ presents a tribute to the Bee Gees through their catalogue of hits over four decades from the 60s to the 90s. The full live band blend the classic hits, acoustic medleys and dance floor fillers which define the show.

This is a totally live concert experience which prides itself on musical, in particular vocal authenticity, while the accompanying costume changes complement the show to give audiences an original feeling.

As well as their live theatre performances, the band has appeared on each of Ireland’s national television stations (RTE, TV3, TG4).

Late in 2012 they joined forces with UK Musical Director JBlack who specialises in tribute show development (“The Stones”, “JBlack sings Bob Dylan”, “Real Diamond”, “Garfunkel and Simon”).

He has refined the music and the structure of the show to enhance the orchestration allowing the beauty of the three voices of the principal characters to shine.

And the great thing is the appeal to different age groups. Whether you favour the golden era of the 60s, the dance floor hits of the 70s, the comeback hits of the 80s and 90s or the string of hits they wrote for various other artists along the way, this show has something for everyone from the novice to the most discerning fan.

lWinterlight, the cultural arm of Fire & Water is promoting Goose Aid - a charity concert at The Works in aid of Sowerby Bridge Flood Relief on Friday March 11.

The line-up includes Red Hippo, Didikai, The Bromleys and Break Away Brass who kick things off on the lower level at 7.30pm.

Upstairs opens at around 7.45pm with the first band due on stage at 8.30pm.
