Everly Brothers on Saturday



Appearing  this Saturday: The Everly Brothers.

Don and Phil Everly first became famous back in 1957 with Bye Bye Love and quickly established themselves as Rock n Rollers for the rest of that decade. Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy's Clown and Walk Right Back followed successively before they moved into the rock-a-ballad style they later became synonymous with.

In the mid 1960's they chart topped with, Crying In The Rain, Devoted To You, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Love Is Strange, Ebony Eyes, When Will I Be Loved and other softer rock songs.

By the start of the 1970's both brothers had become addicted to amphetamines which lead to a nervous breakdown for Don and the duo stopped recording. By the time both were recovered, disagreements had turned into a feud and the brothers did not perform, nor communicate with each other for a decade and pursued fruitless solo careers.

Thirteen years after the split, they performed some tense reunion concerts together beginning in the UK in 1983 where they had agreed that they would only talk to each other whilst on stage, but only if it was necessary.  Encouraged by the media hype of the reunion, in 1984 they recorded, On The Wings Of A Nightingale which was to be their final song to enter the charts.

By the 1990's the brothers had made peace with each other, but their stop-start careers had eroded their following and they continued to perform one-off reunion concerts every few years until their last appearance in 2004 as featured artists for the Simon & Garfunkel tour Old Friends, Live On Stage.

Phil Everly died in 2014, but the Everly Brothers legacy will live on.
We invite you to experience their heyday and bask in the incredible love songs penned by these talented and troubled souls.

Party in the Park is at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the stage show an hour later.

Happy Valentine's Day




It is officially the most romantic day of the year and cupid will be fanning the flames of love and rekindling some dying embers as he goes around shooting arrows all over the place.

There are those people who think that Valentine's Day is an expensive rip-off for those in a relationship, forced to pay three times the going rate for flowers or an evening out.  And others who think it exploits loneliness in those who want to be in a relationship but are not..  And then there are people out there who look forward to showering their beau with lots of presents and candy.


Regardless of how you feel about the day itself, there are lots of people online in Second Life which means lots of chances to strike up new friendships, and what better place to do it than the Lala's Valentine's Ball today at 1pm SL (9pm UK).

Come enjoy some happy tunes and a finger buffet at the campest club on earth.  See you there, and Happy Valentines Day!

And don't forget to visit the Love Machine in the Hub and click it for your perfect date!   Look at the gorgeous hunk I got!

Matt Monro's Love-In for Valentines



On Saturday, join us for a special show to celebrate Valetines Day.

Matt Monro, sometimes known as the Singing Bus Driver, was a British male vocalist whose career spanned the late 1950s 60s and 70s.

In the 1960s Matt Monro hit international fame and left for America, spending the next 20 years performing concerts and in Las Vegas, before returning to the UK shortly before his death in 1985 at just 54.

The man with the warm and beautiful voice brought enormous pleasure to millions and had many celebrity fans including Frank Sinatra who said of Monro after his death: “If I had to choose three of the finest male vocalists in the singing business, Matt would be one of them. His pitch was right on the nose; his word enunciations letter perfect; his understanding of a song thorough.”

He sang the opening movie scores to The Italian Job (On Days Like These)From Russia With Love and Born Free and is best known for songs, Portrait of My Love, If I Never Sing Another Song, We're Gonna Change The World, The Impossible Dream and Walk Away (later recorded by Elvis).

Join us for a romantic evening, with Matt Monro appearing for the first time ever in London City.

Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK), and the Show begins an hour later at 1pm SL

It's packing quite a wallop




As I write this, rain is pouring down the window, like one of those 1940's movies, where you think the effects are over the top, but its true, walls of water are running down the brickwork.

Hurricane Ciara is currently in London (and throughout the UK) and is whistling 3 eerie notes constantly, at the same time.  Trash cans and bits of unsecured fence are tumbleweeding down the road and out of sight.

An old lady in a blue raincoat and plastic rain hat, has just sped past at about 30 miles an hour, with legs moving like a propeller.   I doubt she has managed speeds anything like this in the past forty years.

And now its getting dark and the wind is showing no signs of abating.  Aren't you glad you stayed indoors?  London City is definitely the place to be during this latest threat of Armageddon.

Keep Safe!
