Recommended: Phil Bates Band & ELO Klassik

#535: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! When Phil Bates announced in late 2011 that he was leaving: The Orchestra for the second time, our sadness was tempered by his intention to develop his new ELO related projects on the continent. Hence, if you are a resident of Germany, Poland or the eastern European mainland in general, you will be in with a good chance of having the opportunity to go see and hear either of the former ELO Part II and The Orchestra (former members of ELO & ELO Part II) front man's live projects.
The core six member Phil Bates Band, who perform live under the banner "Music of the Electric Light Orchestra performed by Phil Bates & band" also includes Joanna Bates and becomes the ten piece entity "ELO Klassik: Music of the Electric Light Orchestra performed by Phil Bates & The Berlin String Ensemble" when it is augmented by said string quartet. We can only hope that Phil brings either or both acts to the UK in yet future days. But in the meantime, both shows are currently touring actively on the continent. You can find out where the latest gigs are by visiting the Sounds Promotion website via this link thus: www.sounds-promotion.de

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends The Phil Bates Band and ELO Klassik to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe Move'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 07-May-2013
