Phuket to host Still Smokin music and movie event

Posted on August 4, 2011


Jim Newport will be hosting an exhibition of his film and television-related work in Phuket this month, as well as taking the stage with his blues band.

While many people on the island may recognise him from a handful of appearances as the lead singer of Jimmy Fame at the Phuket International Blues Festival, Newport is also an acclaimed production designer.

Among the work that has won him Emmy nominations is baffling sci-fi series Lost, which revolved around a group of people from across the world stranded on an exotic island.

In addition to this, Newport has worked on hit motion pictures such as the Nicolas Cage action movie Bangkok Dangerous and iconic film Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.

A display of his design work will go on show at the Brush Restaurant and Lounge in Kalim from August 8th to 14th, with Jimmy Fame due to perform on the Saturday to unveil the band’s new album Wanted Man.

Fans can also get copies of Newport’s novel The Siamese Connection signed by the multi-talented writer.

The venue is open from 11:00 to 23:30 local time and the concert will begin at 21:00.
