Booking now closed, a few tickets still left on the door.

Hurricanes Irma and Maria delivered some of the most powerful Atlantic basin storms ever recorded and left cities, and some islands almost entirely in ruins. Of these islands that were pummelled by wind and rain, some will never recover, not to mention the many people who lost their lives. For the island of Anguilla, being one of the hardest-hit places, a slow and arduous recovery lies ahead.

We want to help and so on 7 January 2018, we’ll unite for this very special cause, in order to raise money for those families most greatly displaced. We hope through this concert to raise enough money to benefit various institutions, including Albena Lake Hodge, the only secondary education facility on the island, where many computers and learning supplies were either lost or severely damaged, and the D.O.V.E centre which was set up to meet the specific and varying needs of children with severe and/or multiple developmental delay. The Centre’s mobility van was destroyed during the hurricane and we intend to replace it.

Join the likes of Morcheeba, Ayanna Witter-Johnson and Bankie Banx (plus some very special guests) for an unforgettable, uplifting evening of music and positivity. This one-off collaboration will see musicians come together to re-establish that energy that can often only be found in the Caribbean.

“Live Up, Love Up, Live On”!!


All proceeds to the Anguilla Foundation, in partnership with Anguilla Red Cross

Tickets on sale now. Further artists to be confirmed! Ticket includes a rum cocktail on arrival

Morcheeba are possibly one of the most influential, successful and best known bands that broke through the mid-90’s electronic, trip-hop scene.  Fronted by vocalist Skye Edwards whose blissed out sweet, fluid voice is one of the most recognisable on the planet, Morcheeba’s hypnotic grooves and loose, dreamy melodies saw them selling over 10 million albums.  With co-founder Ross Godfrey’s psychedelic guitar, their laid-back sound is an unforgettable, spellbinding experience.  They make a very special and rare appearance at Ronnie Scott’s in support of the Anguila Foundation.

ACANTHA LANG

Acantha Lang has been making quite a name for herself  since recently relocating to London. Although born in the rich musical landscape of New Orleans, her desire to sing was really kindled after she moved to New York Cityand bought her first Blues CD, and as she says "it felt like home". She immersed herself in the Blues, studying itshistory, music and greats such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. She put together a band and landed a residency at the Harlem Grill where her highly lauded 'Monday Night Blues' performances were described as "an amalgamation of Tina Turner, James Brown, and Janis Joplin".

".....Her voice blew me away. She is truly unforgettable.."  -JUDE LAW

"When I first saw Acantha perform, I knew she was a star in every sense of the word. She has a soulful voice reminiscent of Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, and other legends of Blues & Soul music. She's the real deal".  -MO PLEASURE (Michael Jackon's last keyboard player - THIS IS IT TOUR

"Acantha delivers passionate and energetic performances. A woman full of soul with an incredible voice."-ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND 

"You have one of the best voices I've ever heard"                             -SIMON COWELL
