‘80s band Workshy to perform in Manila

Best known for the songs “Fascination”, “In This Neighborhood” and “Trouble Mind” as well as covers of Bacharach’s “I Say A Little Prayer”, “If I Ever Lose This Heaven” and Carole King’s “It’s Too Late,” London-based 80s band Workshy is coming to Manila for a one-night-only performance on Aug. 10 at The Theatre at Solaire. 

Chrysta Jones, vocalist of Workshy
Titled as Workshy Live In Manila, the concert marks their first visit to Manila presented by PolyEast Records and Solaire Resort and Casino. Workshy is expected to excite their Filipino fans with their back-catalog of the greatest hits from three decades spent in the limelight and cuts from their new album Wayward.

Michael McDermott, Chrysta Jones and Kevin Kehoe formed Workshy in London in 1986. Kevin left the group in 1992 and they’ve been a duet ever since. They signed to UK based Magnet Records which was distributed through WEA, and the debut album The Golden Mile was released in 1989 which raised much fuzz in the UK and became a hit in Japan. The band released a new single for download in 2012, In This Neighborhood (unplugged)-a reworking of one of their earlier classic tracks.

Enjoy an unforgettable night reminiscing the ‘80s with Chrysta Marina Jones (vocals) and the rest of the group on Aug. 10 at The Theatre at Solaire. For more information, you may log on to or call 891-9999; or call PolyEast Records at 374-8410 to 12.
