Thursday 7 June 2018 - QUIZ & DINNER for June, at El Eden's 'Chill Out Lounge'.
The June move to the restaurant amongst Oliva's orange groves is always popular. The open air venue is great for the early June weather.
El Eden's food is more like a BBQ banquet with various starters and lots of succulent meat cooked over burning logs.

There is plenty of room so book with existing club members or bring some new folk to experience the evening.

Come and enjoy yourself with a good meal and your club friends.

Thursday 20 September 2018 - .- - - - - THE BLUES BROTHERS - - - - - -
YES! We have the Blues Brothers Experience from Benidorm.
The film the Blues Brothers was centred around two brothers - Elwood and Jake Blues - immediately after Jake’s release from prison. They were raised in an orphanage and become determined to save it from closure by re-forming their band to earn the money needed. The chaotic scenes as they are chased by police and gangsters whilst trying to perform makes this a brilliant comedy film with cult status. Their rock and roll is exhilarating.
Blues Brothers Experience Benidorm make a fantastic show the music is terrific and their sense of fun infectious. Derek and David are hugely entertaining, full of the energy and musical ability of the originals and have achieved considerable acclaim in Spain.
Their show will make you smile, laugh out loud, dance, shout, wave and clap. They are one of the most unique and best acts to see in this part of Spain. Recommended most strongly. " We Need You, You, You " !!

Thursday 18 October 2018 - He's Back!.........Yes ELVIS !! and the Timewarp Duo too
We are thrilled to announce that we have secured a visit from Simon Patrick with his extraordinary tribute to Elvis Presley. He is a phenomenal performer ask anybody who saw him here in April 2016. Winner of the Best European Elvis Award in Las Vegas, Simon has made appearances over much of Europe.

Thursday 15 November 2018 - GEORGE MICHAEL - The very Finest Tribute & Timewarp Duo too
...............PLEASE READ THIS:-
Careless Whisper, A Different Corner, Jesus To A Child, I Can’t Make You Love Me, Amazing, Praying For Time, Faith, You Have Been Loved, Outside, Fast Love ...... and dozens more by the late George Michael.

On his death the BBC stated that "He was a pop superstar and philanthropist, with good looks, fine singing voice and song writing skills and fantastic stage presence." But George Michael was a flawed genius and his personal problems were well documented but the beautiful and clever music written with meaning from the heart will remain.

James Bermingham
Some years ago on our first cruise holiday one night in the theatre there was a singer, a tribute to George Michael. I wasn’t that interested – as we had all of George’s albums - how could this guy on our cruise ship match the CDs played at home on our Hi-Fi ?
But, was I wrong. The artist was totally brilliant – with the looks, style and voice of George at his peak, at his very best. I was ‘blown away’.

After three years of trying we can at last bring that performer to the GASC. James Bermingham lives in Ireland but will be with us on this night.

James has been performing his Tribute since 2009, he is also an accomplished musician and studio engineer & music producer. He has performed extensively throughout Europe and Australia.
This will be a night with George’s beautiful songs sung with excitement, drama and emotion, I cannot recommend anything more strongly.
With Timewarp Duo too to complete the evening!

Thursday 13 December 2018 - The sounds of the CAVERN CLUB for our Christmas Party
Liverpool’s Cavern Club comes to the GASC!
It was the mid 1960s and the wealth of groups from Liverpool with their infectious songs will never be forgotten!
The focal point for the music was the Cavern Club. So for our entertainment on this night we have the terrific Starbeats band playing live for us the songs of Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Searchers, Bill J Kramer, The Beatles and loads more.

The dinner will be a traditional succulent Turkey dinner but there will be alternatives.
The evening will have a host of extras including our free draw (for members) with cash prizes amounting to 300 euros.

This will be super evening to be at your club, with your friends and so many friendly faces. Don’t miss it!
