You’ll see former players in all the famous jazz venues, in Jools Holland’s band, the BBC Big Band, playing bass for Faithless, or that tall one from Groove Armada...

But aside from all the professionals, there are thousands of young musicians who’ve been taken on tour to the USA, France, Germany, Russia, Poland... who’ve played year after year at the Albert Hall, the Festival Hall, from the foyer of the UN to the jazz clubs of New Orleans. Youngsters above all who, against all odds, have had the chance to be brilliant at what they do.

 

Please join us on March 3rd at Ronnie Scott’s to raise money for this remarkable organisation that, despite everything it has achieved, still relies entirely on donations to continue its work.

GROOVE ARMADA

JxohJX9ElpE

 

Groove Armada are established as one of the planet's best-loved and biggest selling dance acts. As comfortable on the big stages as they are in sweat soaked basements.

Andy Cato and Tom Findlay met in London in the mid 90’s. Groove Armada started as a series of nights across London. It was to promote these nights that they started releasing 12’s for East London pioneer 'Tummy Touch'. 

An album made in a week, 'Northern Star', included the downbeat anthem 'At the River'. From that came major label recognition. 'Vertigo' their first album on Jive sold over a million copies and five albums followed on SONY and BMG garnering Grammy and Brit Nominations and sold out gigs from Sydney to Moscow. 

A pioneering combination of performance and electronics, the GA live show evolved into one of the very best in dance music.

In 2010, the boys redefined the GA sound with Black Light, an album which brought into the studio the blend of guitars and electronics that made their live shows so special. The band toured this album across the globe, closing at Brixton, a venue where they set the record for the most sold out nights.
Since then the boys have gone back to their roots. Through decks&fx shows and a series of dancefloor EP’s, GA have marked a return to the DIY spirit of the warehouse turntables where the project first began. EPs and remixes have appeared on the likes of Hypercolour, Moda Black, Defected, Danse Club…
Summer 2013 saw a return to their We Love Space Terrace residency and DJ gigs from SE1 to Jakarta. GA take control of every aspect of the room; sound, lighting, lasers and visuals, all from their custom built booth. The result is a live, flowing House groove cut by perfectly timed lasers and lit by real time infrared in-booth imagery. It delivers an enhanced version of the warehouse vibe the boys have lived from the beginning. 'We've been on dancefloors since 88 and know how it should feel.'
