Paisley live music gig guide this weekend and all next week

14th Mar 2024

Last March, The Bungalow lost a regular and dear friend Stuart Crawford.

Cheryl Galbraith and some of his friends, have organised a fundraising night in his memory. Cheryl says: “We want to bring Stu’s wide circle of friends together for a celebration of his life and there is no better way to do that than with some live music,and a few bevvies.”

The music will be from John Devine, The Droogs and Shine.

It looks like a sell-out, but if your lucky, you may get one at the door. Cheryl explained we are fundraising for The Golf Foundation, that strives to create life changing opportunities for children, and we believe that this is something that Stuart would have supported. You can donate at Just Giving (Wee Stu’s Tribute Night 2024)

Tomorrow, Saturday 16 March, in the afternoon at The Bungalow is “The most feel-good show in town” (Daily Mail) Looking for me Friend – The Music of Victoria Wood has served up nostalgia, music, and laughter at Edinburgh Fringe; sold out venues across the UK and had the seal of approval from Victoria’s colleagues, school-chums and fans. “Vic would have loved this” – Sue Devaney, Dinnerladies
