Phase II and Friends will perform in Mount Stewart for the first time this Sunday as they present a concert at St. John's United Church.
"It's always interesting to visit a new venue," says group spokesman Gerry Hickey. "There is certainly some eager anticipation, as we don't quite know what to expect."
The concert's title is “Silly Love Songs” in keeping with the celebration of Valentine's Day, which was Thursday. This show features a great mix of tunes from powerful love songs to fun material taken, from a variety of sources.
Keila Glydon and Jeanie Campbell are sure to impress with their renditions of “The End of the World” and “Love Me Tender”. Ed Young comes out from behind the drums and does an excellent job on “How Sweet It Is to Be Loved By You”.
Hickey and Campbell will perform duets of “Jackson”, “You're the One That I Want” and “We've Got Tonight”.
A great variety of songs representing many recording artists will be featured in this performance. The audience will hear songs by Connie Francis, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Abba and more.
Phase II and Friends consists of Campbell, Glydon and Hickey on vocals, backed up by Young on drums, Pat King on keys and sax, John McGarry on bass and Blaine Murphy on lead guitar.
The first two shows in the series were extremely well received, and the band is looking forward to this final performance of “Silly Love Songs”.
The church is located in the centre of Mount Stewart. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with the show commencing at 7:30 p.m. Admission is at the door.
