Signature Live Events | The Sugarhill Gang with the Furious 5 Live on The Shankly Rooftop

This summer The Sugarhill Gang and Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio of the Furious 5 will be taking over the rooftop of The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the track that took rap music global, ‘Rapper’s Delight’.

Brought to you by Signature Live Events and taking place on Saturday 15th June, this will be a real highlight on the summer music calendar – buy your tickets today from Skiddle (digital) skiddle.com/e/13462989 or Eventim (high quality artworked paper collector’s ticket) https://evntm.uk/thesugarhillgang.

This rooftop gig will see the legends of the rap world bring their iconic sound to the music capital of the UK.

The Sugarhill Gang Live

When: Saturday 15th June

Where: Garden of Eden Rooftop, The Shankly Hotel, Liverpool

Sugarhill Gang

40 years ago the Godfathers of rap music, The Sugarhill Gang crashed into the mainstream with the first bona fide worldwide rap hit, “Rapper’s Delight.”

Eventually selling over 8 million copies and cementing the hip hop movement’s place in popular culture, this mega hit went on to become the biggest selling rap single of all time. And today, the iconic sound of The Sugarhill Gang and the Furious 5 is just as powerful and relevant to audiences old and new.

With support from our very own homegrown Liverpool rap collective the L100 Cypher we can’t wait to hear the sounds of New York and Liverpool collide at this unmissable live music event.

We’re sure it’s going to be the show of a lifetime.

The Godfathers of Hip Hop

Formed around 1979, The Sugarhill Gang were made up of Michael “Wonder Mike” Wright, Henry “Big Bank Hank” Jackson, and Guy “Master Gee” O’Brien, all from in Englewood, New Jersey. They were assembled into a group by producer Sylvia Robinson, who was the founder of Sugar Hill Records with her husband, Joe Robinson.

When they released “Rapper’s Delight” it became the first ever rap song to hit the top 40 charts. Infectious and catchy, the song borrowed the break from Chic’s ‘Good times’’, but with the Gang’s unique and bouncy sound.

The Sugarhill Gang went on to release such hits as “Apache, “8th Wonder“, “The Message and “Living in the Fast Lane. Placing themselves at the forefront of this new musical movement.

Today, the band tour with two of the original members, “Wonder Mike” and “Master Gee”, following the sad death of Big Bank Hank on 11 November 2014, after a long battle with cancer.

Still pleasing crowds with their greatest hits, they have teamed up with Henry Williams (pka Hendogg) and DJ T. Dynasty who have both performed with the group for 20 years and counting.

And this summer, the godfathers of hip hop are coming to Liverpool for a very special show.

The Liverpool Music Scene

There is nowhere better to host an unforgettable gig than Liverpool. The music scene in the city has always been the beating heart and foundation of Liverpool, and today is no different.

The Sugarhill Gang’s famous New York sound goes hand in hand with Liverpool’s fascinating history. The two cities have always been sisters, holding a bond that harks back to the Trans-Atlantic era between 1944 and 1968, when over 25,000 merchant seamen would leave Liverpool to spend two weeks in New York, followed by two weeks in Liverpool.

These men were listening to rhythm and blues in New York in the 50s and buying Little Richard and Chuck Berry records in the 60s, two years before they had been heard in Europe. And of course, this distinct sound is how The Beatles first hit the big time.

Both Liverpool and New York offered raw, vibrant and progressive music, bouncing to their own unique beats.

Over 50 years ago, The Beatles created one of the defining moments of the 1960s with their momentous gig on the roof. So, it’s only fitting to welcome fellow legends The Sugarhill Gang to the Shankly rooftop to celebrate 40 years since their momentous music breakthrough.

Get ready for a crazy Liverpool V NYC musical culture clash.

Following I See Rivers, music lovers will be treated to an exclusive performance by one of the city’s best loved bands, The Tea Street Band.

Signature Sessions: Homeless Fundraiser Concert with China Crisis & Vile Assembly

Signature Live Sessions returns for yet another live music event, hosted on the rooftop of The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool. On 24th October we will be welcoming Kirby’s finest exports China Crisis, alongside British punk-rock band, The Vile Assembly.

The most unique musical showcase in the city, we are proud to announce that as well as playing host to some amazing artists, our next concert will also be a homeless fundraiser. In recent years, homelessness has become an epidemic in Liverpool and across the UK. According to statistics released by Shelter homeless charity, more than 300,000 people in Britain are officially recorded as homeless.

We hope to raise money for the homeless community to help combat this growing issue and get people off our streets. Every Signature Session event is completely free, however for this special performance we are asking guests if they would like to make a donation to help the city’s homeless. All proceeds will go towards Signature’s new homeless shelter initiative, The Cotton Street Project.

At Signature we are extremely passionate about helping vulnerable people that find themselves without a home. The Cotton Street Project will welcome Liverpool’s helpless members of society to enjoy a unique and inclusive shelter. This is a completely new initiative in Liverpool and will bring the city an alternative approach to our homeless epidemic.

This shelter will serve as a long-term solution and will aim to address the complex issues that face these people every day, from mental health and addiction, to the personal struggles. These people will have access to accommodation, a café, skilled workshops, social activities and professional support.

About the Bands

Curated and presented by The Farm’s Keith Mullin, we bring together the city’s most influential musicians alongside our brightest new stars, for an unforgettable evening of cinematic music.

After the huge success of Red Rum Club and The Sums in July, followed by Sub Blue and The Farm in August, and finally Natalie McCool and The Christians in September, this month we are bringing you two more fabulous artists.

We’re welcoming Kirby legends China Crisis and British punk band The Vile Assembly to grace our unique stage.

China Crisis

Formed in 1979, China Crisis are a rock band from Kirby, near Liverpool. They were part of a new wave of Liverpool acts in the late 1970s and early 1980s, led by OMD, Echo and Bunneymen, The Teardrop Explodes and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Inspired by the new romantic camp, the band gave their pop songs more edge by injecting political commentary and bluesy reggae rhythms.

In the beginning the band was made up of vocalist and keyboardist Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon, who shared an affection for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, David Bowie and Brian Eno.  The pair eventually asked drummer and percussionist Dave Reilly to join them in 1981, and in 1982 they released their debut single “African and White” as China Crisis.

China Crisis - Signature Sessions

The band were signed to Virgin Records and recorded their debut album, Difficult Shapes & Passive Rhythms: Some People Think It’s Fun To Entertain, which was released in December 1982. They re-released “African and White” shortly after which reached number 45 in the UK singles charts. The follow up single, “Christian” made it to number 12 in the early 1983 and brought them to national prominence.

Over the years, a number of members left and joined the group, however Daly and Lundon remained constant. Their third album, Flaunt the Imperfection, was produced by Walter Becker of Steely Dan fame and reached No. 9 in the UK Albums Chart in May 1985. The band’s last studio album, Warped by Success, was released in 1994, following their parting of ways with the Virgin label. The album produced their final studio chart single, “Everyday the Same”.

China Crisis toured Europe and USA during the late eighties and performed in front of crowds as large as 87,00 in Germany. Since then, they have played a number of live performances and fundraisers events across the world.

The Vile Assembly

The Vile Assembly are a British punk-rock band famous for being whistle blowers on our unjust society. They say what needs to be said through the universally understood medium of music.

Made up of Mark Wainwright, Mark Webb and Paul Mason, Vile Assembly are a tight knit trio of songwriters, musician and producers. The band was formed following a fortuitous meeting between these three life-long friends in a New York café, where they decided enough was enough and the troubles of the world needed to be voiced.

Vile Assembly’s lyricist and vocalist Paul Mason spent a month living on the streets of Liverpool to experience destitution and our ‘vile’ society first hand.  This horrendous experience inspired the band to create the music we all know and love. We can’t wait to see them take to the stage at this very fitting event for the homeless people of Liverpool.

A Breathtaking Rooftop Venue

Every month, Signature Live Sessions takes over the spectacular rooftop venue in The Shankly Hotel to host an unforgettable FREE live music event. Each show invites different and exciting new acts to take to the stage and perform their hits for an eager, music loving audience.

 

Boasting magnificent views over the famous Liverpool city skyline, this amazing venue provides one of the most unique and cinematic backdrops to enjoy some of the very best live artists Merseyside has to offer.

Live Music Liverpool – Signature Sessions

On Tuesday 18th September, we will be welcoming two amazing artists to our stage for the third Signature Live Sessions. The first will be the hugely talented English singer-songwriter Natalie McCool, famous for her inimitable style and gloomy indie-pop. She was first recognised when she won a Yamaha-sponsored national song writing competition judged by Coldplay front man Chris Martin and ever since then, she has become one of the best new artists in Merseyside.

McCool’s breed of slick alternative pop has won acclaim from tastemakers including The Sunday Times, Q, Clash, Line of Best Fit and the 405, as well as Huw Stephens and Alice Levine, while BBC Introducing described the edgy artist as “one of the finest emerging songwriters around”.

As well as the wonderful Natalie McCool, Signature Sessions are inviting the legendary Christians, who first burst onto the scene in the late 1980s.  Renowned for an endless string of soulful, yet socially aware hits such as Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Words, The Bottle and many more,  The Christians are currently enjoying a successful revival to the Scouse music scene.

Named after the surnames of the three brothers that were originally in the line-up and also coincidentally guitarist Henry Priestman’s middle name, this iconic band have had a long list of top 40 hits. Still headed by enigmatic lead singer Garry Christian, who very much deserves the Daily Mirror’s description of him as having ‘one of the finest voices in pop’, we can’t wait to see this legendary band take to the stage in their hometown.

With so much live music to look forward to, as well as in depth artist interviews in lavish hotel suites, extravagant rock star behaviour and all kinds of hot tub shenanigans, stay tuned for all things Signature Sessions.

Garden of Eden Rooftop

Signature Live Sessions will be taking place every month on Garden of Eden’s spectacular rooftop, with different and exciting acts headlining the show each time.

So, make the most of this jaw-dropping setting and get down early, grab a drink, take in the view and meet the bands. The bar will be open from 7pm and there will be food available.

A little history of Cabaret

Fabaret at The Shankly - Cabaret

Unless you have been living under a rock then you must be aware of the musical Cabaret starring a very young Lisa Moneli. The bowler hat, short shorts, and suspenders are an iconic Hollywood image today.

But the origins of Cabaret can be traced to the early 16th century in France. The meaning of the word originally pointed to the venue the performance was held in. Be it a bar, restaurant or nightclub, cabaret was often performed to patrons who were enjoying another leisure activity, the performance just being the background filler.

In short, Cabaret was not as grand as a theatre performance and came just short of being classed as a concert. Cabaret was essentially the DJ of ancient times, a soundtrack to accompany your evening meal or drinks.

Book your Fabaret today

The Shankly Hotel will be hosting this Fabaret spectacular for foreseeable Fridays to come.

Make sure you have your seat booked and like Lisa sang;

“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret old chum Come to the Cabaret.”

Why not surprise somebody who loves live entertainment and book a Friday night at The Shankly?

You and your party can then enjoy a fun Fabaret performance in the Bastion Bar and Restaurant and then a luxury overnight stay in one of our Bill Shankly themed hotel rooms.

Fabaret is free to attend and the curtain lifts at 20:00 pm this Friday, do you have your dancing shoes ready?
