Cobo Bay Hotel has been providing great entertainment to locals and visitors alike for decades, with top local and UK bands, including some of the best tribute acts in the world, playing to over 2000 people from our first-floor balcony.
Our balcony gigs have become a major part of Guernsey summers over the past 30 years and bring a real carnival atmosphere to the Cobo seafront whilst raising much needed funds for local charities such as the Guernsey Cheshire Home.
Advanced bookings are required for lunch on The Beach Terrace, where you can enjoy a carvery buffet and dessert as well as table service for drinks throughout the afternoon.
Music approximately 3pm - 7pm followed by an after-party in our events suite.
Please note that due to the popularity of these events, a section of the Cobo Coast Road at the front of the hotel is closed from 2pm – 8pm, making it impossible to access the hotel by car, though private and public parking is available nearby. If you are staying at Cobo Bay Hotel 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.

Blondied were formed over a decade ago following an appearance by lead singer, Michelle Hendriks, on ITV’s ‘Stars and Their Doubles’ show. Michelle was selected from thousands of lookalikes and her excellent rendition of ‘Sunday Girl’, along with her striking resemblance to Debbie Harry, generated enough interest to form a Blondie tribute band who have been in demand ever since, performing in a number of countries around the world.
Supported by 'The Day Trippers', a tribute to The Beatles.
Kings Of Lyon are the definitive tribute to Kings Of Leon. From the grunge and rock and roll of the pioneering first two albums to their trademark soaring stadium sound, Kings Of Lyon are inseparable from their American counterparts.
Since exploding onto the scene at the beginning of 2009, the band have risen to become one of the most sought-after tributes of recent years, having secured an O2 Academy headline tour that lead straight into their first European tour. A string of festival dates followed throughout Europe, the Middle East and the UK with sell-out shows in the country's foremost music venues from Ireland to the Channel Islands along with high accolade in Q Magazine and a massive UK following.

Us4//U2 were formed in the year 2000 and have performed shows all over the world, but more importantly, they have become an extremely popular fixture on Cobo’s Summer Balcony Gigs calendar for a number of years!
