OOTB 659 – Thursday 14th December – Michael

MichaelThis is it – the last Out of the Bedroom of 2017 with the wonderful Michael as our feature act. We’ve reached OOTB number 659 and we’re bringing cake for you as it’ll be our Christmas show. All religious and non-religious people are welcome and you are free to embrace or completely ignore the Christmas theme. If you want to take part, you can play a festive song – just make it a good one without any fear. First open slot is 8pm and we finish up at 11pm. Entry is free for all whether you are a performer of original material or a music lover. Sign up at 7:30pm for an open mic slot, with 10-15 minutes per act depending on the number of performers.

“Where did 2017 go?” I hear you say. We’ll we’ve had a great time with 18 shows at our (still quite) new home of Woodland Creatures on Leith Walk. Loads of great new acts, musicians returning after a lengthy absence and our amazing regular performers. All-in-all something to celebrate…

At the most recent OOTB, our 658th show, we had another cracking line up with debut host Majk Stokes, Tina Louise Avery, Michael (see below), Darren, Ailsa and The Seahorses, Rui Alma, Conor Michael Riordan, soundman Chris Glen and our feature act Jim Bryce.

Our final feature act of 2017 is Michael, a very lovely septuagenarian gentleman with a long and distinguished musical career stretching back six decades. Born and raised in the Leith area, and proud of that fact, Michael played semi-professionally with his good friend Geoff in ’60s band The Jeffreys and has continued to play live ever since. Just over ten years ago, ‘Mick and Geoff’, as they were know then, made their Out of the Bedroom debut and only recently has Michael become a solo performer and singer. Michael’s songs are beautifully-crafted in the ’50s rock ‘n roll and country traditions with a nod to The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jim Reeves and Elvis among others. Michael has no music available online, no social media presence or any website and we love him for that! 

See you at Woodland Creatures this Thursday…
