If you can’t decide whether to attend a concert or a dance party this weekend, you could do a lot worse than heading down to Ministry of Sound on Saturday and check out their Defected LIVE event, which seeks to recreate house tracks in a live setting, fronted by the original artists on vocals.
This Saturday 24th July will see Candi Staton, Barbara Tucker, Julie McKnight and Steve Edwards, all performing their house hits as backed by the Defected house band, which consists of Robin Lee, players from the live bands of Basement Jaxx and Amy Winehouse, and other very skilled musicians with various impressive qualifications that due to limitations of space we can’t get into at this moment. The point is, these guys can recreate a house groove like nobody’s business.
Interested? You can even get in for free if you fancy, you just have to be the first to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact number.
If that doesn’t work out for you, there’s also the possibility of actually buying tickets here for the low (relatively) price of £20.
