Jonathan Irving the festival promoter said “Okells will not only be looking after the drinks for the entire festival – subject to license - they will also be sponsoring the Robin Gibb homecoming concert on 2nd June. The Saturday night concert celebrates the Isle of Man’s freedom to flourish with a performance by Robin Gibb – one of the most successful music artists of all times and drinks from Okells - the most successful and longest serving Island Brewery”.
The brewery commented “We are extremely excited and honoured to be sponsoring the Manx night of the Peel Bay Festival. Okells has always been a strong supporter of local music and we believe this will be a truly memorable night with Robin Gibb back home, performing to the local people. This music festival is an impressive undertaking and we hope to be a part of it for years to come.”
The concert will open with a performance of “Like the Wind”, commissioned by the Isle of Man Arts Council, composed to celebrate the Centenary TT. The piece will include two rock bands, and massed brass and percussion groups.
Robin Gibb will also be supported by ex-Smokie, Chris Norman, who has lived on the Island for the last 21 years and is probably best known in the Isle of Man for his hit “Living Next Door to Alice” – (Alice now lives in Peel)!
With Okells being the national brewer for the Island and Robin Gibb coming back to his roots – this is a perfect pairing for the evening – and perhaps Robin will round off with his emotive version of ELLAN VANNIN – just to make this a truly Manx night to remember.
