Balcony gigs boast legendary line up for 2019

Wednesday 03 April 2019

While spring has only just started, the roster of artists for this year's Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs has been released for the summer-time events.

People will be able to enjoy another bumper series of free family-friendly live music, with acts including tributes to global superstar Ed Sheeran, the iconic David Bowie and rock legends AC/DC.

The free gigs from the Cobo Bay Hotel first floor balcony have been providing live entertainment for some 30 years now. This year's series begins on Sunday 5 May, with a Tina Turner tribute, and the last act will be on the balcony on Sunday 25 August.

As in previous years, the events will also raise money for the Guernsey Cheshire Homes and the GSPCA, JT’s chosen charity for 2019.

 David Nussbaumer, organiser of The Cobo Bay Balcony Gigs, said: “Our thanks go to JT for their on-going support, which has helped us to secure some of the best tribute acts on the scene. It promises to be another great summer of music.”

JT’s Deputy Managing Director in Guernsey, Tamara O’Brien, said: “It wouldn’t be summer without the balcony gigs. This is the eighth year that we have supported these popular community events. As always, the line-up of tribute acts is fantastic and we’re pleased to be helping these events continue and bring top quality, live music for everyone to enjoy for free.

"In the lead up to the first gig we will have competitions and news on our @JTsocial Facebook page where everyone can catch up with the latest gig gossip and this year we will be livestreaming the event using JT’s exclusive beach cam and drone footage.

"As always, given the beautiful location that these events take place in, we strongly encourage islanders attending to collect and take home their rubbish and leave Cobo Bay litter free.”
