Daniel Wastell, the lead singer of Salamander

Patrick’s Restaurant and Bar in Ashley Cross is inviting its customers to support the south coast’s local bands, by attending the venue’s live music events this summer.

With a line-up of great gigs booked for the summer months, including a Bank holiday set by veteran singer songwriter Paul Kinvig, Patrick’s is ensuring the menu of live music is eclectic and will appeal to everyone.

Rock and pop band Salamander will be playing twice in July and promise to shake up the ‘Status Quo’, with a fantastic mix of covers from bands such as Robert Palmer, Thin Lizzy and Status Quo, combined with a selection of more modern hits from the likes of Kings of Leon, Snow Patrol and Razorlight.

This will be followed with a gig by musical duo Innocent Bystanders in August. Offering a unique sound, the band comprises Scottish singer Selina Hunter and pro-guitarist Frank Smithland.  Finally, Paul Kinvig will complete the summer’s gig and showcase his song-writing talent reminiscent of greats such as James Taylor, with an intimate acoustic set in late August.

Patrick Michael, owner of Patrick’s Restaurant, Bar and Event Catering said: “Nothing says ‘summer’s here’ better than the sound of live music, and the Patrick’s team and I are looking forward to an exciting line-up of gigs here in July and August.”
