Coaster Theatre Special Events
Blackstone Edge Band - Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 pm
From the craggy moors of Britain comes the Blackstone Edge Band, featuring vocalist Philip Clayton-Thompson, musical director Dave Fleschner and several of Portland's top musicians, including Eric Schrepel of Y La Bamba. BSE offers audiences a chance to experience an evening filled with popular music, song and film clips that evoke a simpler time. Unlike The Beatles who sang "Besame Mucho" in English for their audition with Decca Records, Clayton-Thompson, the lad from Lancashire, sings it in Spanish, along with "La Mer" in French and Sting's "Fields of Gold" and "Roxanne". Now that you've got to hear. Tickets are $20
