Live at the Quarry: RSVP Bhangra and DanceGuru DJs

09/07/2021

The Old Town Quarry

£15, to include show and a choice of two vegan curries prepared by Loves Café.

RSVP is spearheading the renaissance of live Bhangra in the UK, introducing Bhangra to mainstream audiences for the first time. From massive stages at Glastonbury (8 years) and Womad (4 years), to concert venues across the UK and Europe, they’re always guaranteed to get even the most reluctant on their feet, and leave audiences breathless with excitement.

Every show comes with an introduction to Bhangra dance – everyone’s included with RSVP’s emphasis on partying Punjabi style. With musicians wholly rooted in an authentic living tradition, yet unafraid to innovate, this is the ultimate celebratory Indian music.

DanceGuru DJs will be adding their unique music to the evening, with a live DJ set. DanceGuru is the brainchild of established musicians Reg, a punk fronting the band ‘London Calling’ and Judge who plays with West Country legends ‘RSVP Bhangra’. Mixing raw energy punk with unstoppable Bhangrabeats, DanceGuru wraps together beautifully constructed electronica played with live instruments in a fusion that creates the ultimate celebratory Indian music.

Each family show comes with an introduction to Bhangra dance, sharing RSVP’s passion for partying Punjabi style.

Price: £15, to include show and a choice of two vegan curries prepared by Loves Café.

Age Guidance: Suitable for all the family

NB: Tickets are all bookable in advance and there will be no on door sales at individual performances.
