It’s 30 years since the album “Upstairs at Eric’s” launched Yazoo – or Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet. Now, a bar on Westow Hill in Crystal Palace, Downstairs at Patrick’s, is hoping to be the launchpad for a legion of new south London music acts.
And Patrick’s Bar’s weekly is launching by bringing a touch of Hollywood to Crystal Palace on Saturday, August 31.
The opening night features the Lora G & Nikki Lunden band from Beverley Hills. “We’re thrilled to be performing the opening night for Patrick’s,” said Lora G.
Comprised of a group of musicians who each have their own individual recording projects and albums, the Lora G & Nikki Lunden band’s debut album “Streets Of Hollywood” was released in 2012.
“Crystal Palace has been crying out for a live music venue,” Rob Saunders from the Deuce Management and Promotion company which is working with the venue on the Music Nights.
“The popularity of the various music festivals held in and around the area proves there is a demand for people to see quality acts, and we aim to provide this on a weekly basis.”
The cellar bar venue, with a capacity for 70 people, is also seeking new acts who could perform on the Music Nights. Bands and artists interested in being booked to perform Downstairs At Patrick’s should email email@example.com or visit www.deucemp.com/patricksbar.
