Music medley at the Bitter Suite

The Bitter Suite plays host to a medley of music from some up-and-coming local artists next week.

The event usually happens every two to three months at the Fylde Road venue and features music from Philip Quigley's band Vicariux.

Philip is a music teacher based in Leyland and teaches about 50 students a week from his sound-proof studio Karibu. He teaches guitar, bass, piano, drums, voice, theory and technology and has an outstanding 100% pass rate for exams at all eight levels.

At these musical events Philip puts a line-up together which incorporates many of his students, either as performers or as an audiences. This he says gives them, and him, a platform for development.

Joining him on the line-up at this event on Friday, July 4 are The Jackpot Golden Boys, and Polar Fire, a band which features three of Philip's brothers.

The rest of the line-up features some of his best students. Oli D is a young and talented solo guitarist. Sharon H will be giving her second performance as a student singer and DJ Neil D will also appear. Neil is a previous A Level student.

All proceeds from the gigs go to charity and this time he hopes to raise 200 to 300 in support of the Chinese Earthquake Appeal.

Catch all these talented performers at The Bitter Suite on Friday, July 4. Admission is 3 or 2 with a flyer. Doors are open from 8pm – 12am.
