Events at the Cobo Bay Hotel
JT Summer Balcony Gigs
Cobo Bay Hotel has been providing great entertainment to locals & visitors alike for over 25 years, with top local & UK bands, including some of the best tribute acts in the world, playing to over 2000 people from our first floor balcony.
These events have become a major part of Guernsey summers and bring a real carnival atmosphere to the Cobo seafront, whilst raising much needed funds for local charities such as the Guernsey Cheshire Home. Due to the popularity of these events, a section of the Cobo Coast Road at the front of the hotel is temporarily closed off. If you are a resident and would prefer a more peaceful afternoon then we will be more than happy to arrange any trips or excursions you may wish to enjoy.
The music usually starts from around 3pm, so book a table for lunch on The Beach Terrace beforehand to enjoy a special 3 course menu with for £35 per person before enjoying a great view of the concert with drinks delivered straight to your table. As part of our ongoing sponsorship with JT, all gig-goers wearing a JT loyalty wristband will receive 15% off selected drinks during and after the music.
2015 Balcony Gigs sponsored by JT
Sunday 3rd May: Blondied
The aim of Blondied is to faithfully recreate the sound of Debbie Harry and Blondie as well as the excitement and power of the band onstage for new and old fans alike to enjoy. The Blondied show includes all Blondie`s hits and more, from their raucous early records right up to the slick pop/rock that has become Blondie`s trademark in the 21st century. You can also expect to hear some of Debbie Harry`s solo hits, such as 'I want that man'.
Sunday 24th May: Oases
Oases have justly earned their reputation as the ultimate Oasis tribute band through meticulous attention to authenticity, dedication to entertainment and good ol’ hard work! Since their formation in 2001, they have played sell-out concerts in the UK and across the world, placing great emphasis on some of Oasis’ actual celebrated live performances, thus creating the most dynamic stage show possible, packed full of brilliantly played classics from the mid-nineties up to the end of the band’s career.
Sunday 7th June: Stereofonics
A fantastic tribute band from Jersey who perform regularly at The Doghouse either performing the Stereophonics greatest hits from the past 20 years or a wide range of brilliant upbeat covers as alter-ego ‘The Reasons’.
Sunday 26th July: Us4//U2
Us4//U2 were formed in the year 2000 and have performed shows all over the world, but more importantly have been an extremely popular fixture on Cobo’s Summer Balcony Gigs calendar for a number of years! Their show takes you on a journey through U2's career, delivering an energetic performance which has carved their reputation as one of the most sought after tribute bands in Europe.
Sunday 30th August: Fleetwood Bac
Fleetwood Bac are the original and best Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band. Endorsed by Mick Fleetwood himself, and raved about by Peter Green’s biographer, Fleetwood Bac are the only tribute band to authentically replicate the classic Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie/John McVie /Mick Fleetwood “Rumours” line-up. Expect the best of over three decades of Fleetwood Mac, who survived all the slings and arrows that the rock industry could throw at it, to produce timeless West Coast Rock. The Fleetwood Bac show also features several songs from the Peter Green days, plus some of Stevie's biggest solo hits.
