Capital Models – Live, Saturday 14 May
Roslin Masonic Hall, 21 Main St, Roslin, EH25 9LD; Bar 7pm-12am
An Evening of 60’s & 70’s Music; All profits to Roslin & Bilston First Responders
This May sees Capital Models return to the stage for the first time since January 2020 for a performance postponed from last December due to Covid, when they will play a fund raiser for a defibrillator in the town of Roslin, just south of Edinburgh.
The line up (the 15th version of the band since its founding in 1979 – but one which has been constant now for over 3 years) is David Reilly (Cloudland Blue Quartet, Creek) on guitar and vocals, Stu Cobley (Creek) on guitar, Paul Reynolds (ex-Pure Bears) on Keyboards, Keith Apter (Capital Models 2nd Drummer in 1980) on bass and Roslin’s very own Johnny Weitzen on drums.
They’ll play two sets of 60s and 70s covers featuring songs by Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground, David Bowie, Roxy Music along with crowd pleasers from the likes of Neil Diamond, Glen Campbell, Kenny Rogers and Van Morrison.
The night runs from 7 till midnight but get along early as attendance is limited to just 80.
