Soul II Soul - 10pm
Soul II Soul are a British musical collective formed in London in 1988. They are best known for their 1989 UK chart-topper and US top five hit "Back to Life (However Do You Want Me)", and "Keep On Movin'" which reached number five in the UK and number 11 in the US. They won two Grammy Awards, and have been nominated for five Brit Awards—twice for Best British Group.
Into more recent times, musically Soul II Soul has kept itself contemporary – ‘Keep On Movin’ was used for the high profile Renault Clio television ads. Mary J. Blige and Sean Kingston have both released cover versions of ‘Back To Life’; while Beverly Knight released her version of ‘FairPlay’ in 2011. A year later, ‘Back to Life’ was featured in the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.

The Bootleg Beatles
The world’s first and finest tribute band, The Bootleg Beatles, continue to thrill audiences performing their acclaimed homage to the Fab Four.
Deco originally went viral online after producing an unlikely 80s mashup of a song which has received more than 1.1 million views. The video was the band performing the lyrics of Oasis’ Wonderwall, to the tune of Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat, in true 80s-style.
The band - which was established in 2011 - have since released a new mashup, of how The Spice Girls’ Wannabe would sound if it was released in the 80s, to the tune of Sexual Healing, by Marvin Gaye.
They released their EP ‘Real Life’ in 2020, as well as seven singles the previous year.
