Hercules & Love Affair playing live with Jocelyn Brown? With Nicky Siano also on the bill? Sounds like disco heaven to us.
Hercules & Love Affair
Luv Dancin DJs
VIP Bell Tower - hosted by Stevie Wonderland
Red Greg & Gideön (NYC Downlow)
Disco lovers rejoice once more - La Discothèque returns on Sunday 30th April for a Bank Holiday spectacular.
We are ecstatic to announce that Hercules & Love Affair will be treating us to an exclusive live performance! Hercules & Love Affair aren't simply a band, they are a cast of performers whose sets are immersive, gripping and filled with sonic inspiration. Their 4th album showcases some darker, deeper sounds that will fill Albert Hall with a retro, yet futuristic and brooding disco ambience. You are all in for one hell of a performance! If you've never seen them live before then this is an absolute must!
The NYC troop play alongside Jocelyn Brown, who can be heard on many of the greatest records of the disco era. She is the voice of classic groups like Musique, Inner Life, Change and many others and is the diva behind ‘Somebody else’s guy’. Today she is still one of the most sought after singers in the music business and we're over the moon that she was able to set another date to perform live at Albert Hall.
Joining the bill is Nicky Siano, a pioneer of the dance music scene in the early seventies. He was the owner/designer/DJ of the legendary dance palace The Gallery, a club that inspired The Garage and Studio 54. He inspired and launched the careers of Grace Jones, D.C. La Rue, Loleatta Holloway, Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, to name a few. What an honour to have him fly in for the occasion.
Returning to La Discotheque is the reel-to-reel master & disco edits don Greg Wilson. His set was regarded by most as the highlight of our Launch Party back in November. We wonder if he can top it!? Thrown into the mix is The Reflex who has taken remixes & edits to another level, as well as La Discotheque residents Luv Dancin' et voila, we complete our main room line-up!
VIP BELL TOWER
Stevie Wonderland, a celebration of all things disco will be hosting our VIP Bell Tower this time around and boy, have they got a line-up for you!
Gideön (NYC Downlow) is the co-founder of the infamous ‘homo disco’ that occupies a small, seedy corner of Glastonbury Festival’s south side and he'll be joinined by Red Greg (You're A Melody) AKA Darren Griffiths who's highly regarded among disco and soul aficionados worldwide. Completing the line-up will be Jonny X and Stevie Wonderland friends + family. Wow!
Note: Boys, you'll be happy to know that La Pisscothèque makes it's debut in the boys loo too. When you know you know! You're in for a treat!
