Lost In Music

Song, after song delivers and builds on the last

If you consider yourself a Seventies’ Soul Sister, a Funk Soul Brother, or a Disco Diva, this show is definitely for you! You can sense the anticipation in the audience who are in for a night of sharp, musical talent, transporting us back to the Disco era of the 70s.

The seven-piece band is first to appear on stage, and they strike up with power and energy, Earthing us in the era. This is a classic line up of keys, guitar, drum and bass with the addition of the ever-present, energetic and choreographed horn section, bringing the Wind. Each of the horn section (Lee Hallam: Trombone; Pelham Wood: Sax and Dylan Herbert: Trumpet) is gifted a solo at various points in the evening and they don’t disappoint. They also add subtle texture with additional percussion, which they play with the same entertaining choreography that they bring to the rest of the set.

Our quintet of singers each bring the Fire with fun, sass, soul and style and each is a talent in their own right. They are great as an ensemble complete with subtle and capable choreography, and they equally shine in their solo slots. We are hosted by Kevin Cole who has a cheeky and likeable energy, and is determined that the crowd, hosted in a theatre, behave as though they are in a stadium, encouraging us to our feet, to clap along and take as much footage as our phone memories can handle!

Song, after song delivers and builds on the last. Every classic you can think of from that era makes an appearance and at no point does the energy drop. The singers are generous and allow the audience to join in – and at points lead the singing, so that the night belongs to us all.

I spend most of the evening being mesmerised by Cameron Meek who, on drums, is literally the beating heart of the band. He certainly gets lost in the music around him, and never misses a beat, finishing one number and counting straight into the next. He flies around his kit with the illusion of it being effortless, such is his talent.

If you’re looking for a genteel night at the theatre, with opportunities to politely applaud at the end of each number, then perhaps this is one to miss. If, however, you’re up for a 70s party, and you’re willing to sing along with every classic disco tune you can recall, then book your seat (not that you’ll need it), dust those sequins off and practice those classic disco moves!
