Kicking things off on Thursday, April 18th is our free Karaoke party hosted by none other than Marina Coombes! You may know her as our favourite Amy Winehouse tribute, but on Easter Thursday she'll be the Karaoke hostess with the most-est. Sing your heart out to soul and Karaoke classics and then drink and dance until late with a special secret comedy DJ act...
On Good Friday we welcome back The Strange Doors, infamously known as the best tribute to The Doors around. Let them take you back to the 60s by recreating the charismatic sights of Jim Morrison and the authentic sounds of The Doors. Here you will find ad-libbed poetry, a singer that jumps into the air and writhes on the floor (whilst conjuring the Lizard King with his rich baritone voice), jazzy organ solos, bluesy slide guitar and powerful, yet subtle drumming that punctuates the music and vocals. When the gig is done, stay for Dig? and dance all night to soul, rock and roll and more from DJs Richard Bamber andRichard Buckley.
Saturday April 20th we have a brand new band heading to The Night Owl: Rude Six! This young, energetic ska and reggae outfit cover all the classics from Toots, The Specials and The Selecter as well as their own original tracks! Catch them live followed by a ska-infused Dig? club night with DJs Steve Davis from The Ska 45's and Mazzy Snape.
Last but by no means least, Easter Sunday sees the return of April Fools Gold by popular demand! Britpop and 90s indie band Britpop United will be providing the tunes, whilst DJs Shaun Walsh (Resurrection) and Dom Cross (Come Together) will be playing Britpop, indie, 90s and more until late. The longer you drink and dance, the longer we party!
The last Friday of the month sees the return of the illustrious Soul Train dance off at Le Freak! You guys can't get enough of the best disco dance off in town, and we can't wait to #DoItForTheDisco on Friday, April 26th with DJs Josh Halliley, Tom Mason and Richard Buckley.
Stirring up a funk soul stew on Saturday, April 27th are Nick Pride and The Pimptones. Phat funk grooves and beefy jazz breaks meet harmonious soul lyrics and an upbeat tempo that will keep you dancing all night, we just know you'll love this six piece jazz outfit almost as much as we do! As always, come for the gig and stay for the Dig? as DJs Andrew Marshall and Steve Connelly will be spinning until 4am.
