Hi, I’m Tim, bass player from The Trippers – Rock Legendario, and I’m thrilled to be back with the band for our brand-new Autumn 2018 season. We had a huge summer with more gigs than we’ve ever played before. It has been good to take a month away from concerts, weddings and fiestas to lock ourselves away in rehearsals and to add more material to our set-list. We’ve been polishing the songs that needed it, cutting out those which weren’t as good as we wanted them to be, and adding in lots more well-known rock anthems. Autumn is going to have more classic rock from The Trippers than ever before.
We’re kicking off this Autumn with a creepy Halloween party in Hotel Galera (Galera, Granada) on 31 October – this is a venue we LOVE playing at. We’ve pretty much become the house-band for this hotel, having had so many completely packed gigs there over the last year. Of course, as it’s Halloween, we’re adding some spooky elements to the set – yes, we’re doing our own take on Michael Jackson’s Thriller as part of a new medley of Jackson numbers, with our own added Tripper’s rock twist. It’s been fun to put together and we’re looking forward to debuting this in Galera. Bookings are definitely needed if you want to enjoy the special Halloween menu (we can definitely recommend all the food at Hotel Galera – delicious!), and then it’s rock party time! All are welcome for the concert, and you (probably) don’t have to book for that. The concert room is quite large once the tables are cleared away and everyone is up and dancing!
Next we’re back playing in Disco Scorpio, Caniles, on 3 November. We’ve played in this trendy club before in the very early days of the band, and it’s great to be able to come back and perform our new set so close to our home base of Baza. There’s lots of room to really ROCK at Disco Scorpio, and we’re looking forward to the close connection between the band and the audience at this great venue. Their wonderful disco light setup will also add a whole new dimension to our performance. A song we’ve prepared for our Autumn season is a number by Nirvana. We think it’ll go down well … what do you think?
And then it’s a quick turn-around as we head off down to Mojacar to the incredible Ankara on 4 November. We’ve had some great gigs in Ankara, and we love the mix of holidaymakers, locals, Spanish and English (and probably from elsewhere too!). The setting is perfect for some of our classic rock songs such as those by AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Deep Purple, Guns & Roses, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Queen and U2. In fact, we find it hard to keep our singer, Silvio Rossi, near the band when we play at Ankara! Off he goes onto the paseo, singing out into the Mediterranean beyond! Next, you’ll find him standing on a table, singing to someone in the audience. It’s all great fun! This time around, we have got even more special little “somethings” to give to everyone who wants one… a special little “Trippers $100 bill”, just from us for you! Ankara – we love you!
We do hope you’ll be able to catch us on at least part of our Autumn 2018 season. Please do come along and take the time to say hello to the band when you’re there. We speak both Spanish and English, and we love to get to know our audience as well as play. See you there!
