THE ‘Hot Summer Nights’ concert season kicked off on a warm Thursday night with an entertaining evening of swing provided by the Andy Peacock Big Band.Mijas auditorium swung to the great music of the 40s and 50s as the 14-piece band (yes, one more than advertised) played well-known songs like ‘In the mood,’ ‘Pennsylvania 6500’ and ‘Little brown jug’ before Chas Burnett joined them to sing swing hits that included ‘Mack the knife,’ ‘Beyond the sea’ and some more modern songs with the swing treatment with ‘Happy’ being very popular with the appreciative audience. A special treat during the interval was provided by the Swan School Big Band, 10 very talented young musicians who wowed the crowd with their musical prowess.Friday night saw the music change from jazz to rock, and when Stereo 80 took to the stage opening the evening with Dire Straits’ ‘Money for nothing,’ the audience were on their feet clapping and dancing. This Fuengirola-based band surprised people with their authentic versions of 80s classic rock songs from AC/DC, Bon Jovi and more, with many commenting that they were too good to be a support band.After this animated start to the evening George Mileson took to the stage with his nine-piece band for his ‘Tribute to Bruce Springsteen.’ Promising a two-and-a-half-hour concert, Brucie fans were in for a treat and were soon singing along with George, who made frequent forays into the audience, running around the auditorium singing! After so many of Springsteen’s songs, the final 30 minutes had George playing all the anthems that had everyone up and joining in.‘Hot Summer Nights’ continue in August with the premier Bon Jovi tribute band ‘Bon Giovi,’ Desperados with an Eagles Tribute and a classic rock night featuring three bands: Echoes of Pink Floyd, Deeper Purple and Stereo 80 (who are the support band for both Bon Giovi and Desperados).Details can be found on www.costadeldisco.com or 952 661 819/667 759 355
