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.

Signature Live Events

Signature Live Events is an exciting new venture with a strong focus on giving something back to the city’s already vibrant music scene.

SLE are passionate about offering live music events with a difference, and the unique Shankly Hotel rooftop offers music lovers the incredible backdrop of Liverpool’s iconic skyline and an atmosphere like no other venue.

13 Year Old Entrepreneur Louie Smith Donates £500 to Shelter

Signature Living hotels are known for playing host to an unmissable range of events. From afternoon tea served with a twist, to unique and themed occasions, at The Shankly Hotel we’re always striving to bring Liverpool something different.

So, when Louie Smith and his Dad approached us, we were excited to find out more about what they do. Louie is just 13, but has already built a wide following of supporters. The young DJ and budding entrepreneur has accumulated almost 9,000 Instagram followers for his growing events brand ‘Forever Young’.

Forever Young Kids Raves Liverpool

The essence of Louie’s brand is to create a safe space for young people to come together and have fun. It’s no secret that children in the UK get their fair share of negative press, so Louie wanted to shed some light on the other side to the story.

Showcasing his entrepreneurial spirit, Louie set out to host kids raves for 10-14 years olds. Deciding that the events would be fully managed and professionally delivered, Louie also DJs at each event himself and invites other DJs to get involved too.

Louie gives profit from his shows to charity, with past donations going to Alder Hey. He is an ambassador for speaking out against Cyber Bullying having been victim of it himself due to the success he has had. Louie has created his own logo around ‘Speak Out’ and the hashtag #Iknowlouie to get people talking. He is also raising awareness against knife crime, another massive problem our youth are facing.

How Did it All Start?

Forever Young began with one event in a small community hall. There were only about 80 people for the first rave, growing to a couple of hundred for the next event in Sefton Park. By Christmas, tickets for the event were in such high demand that Louie and his dad, Gerard came to meet our Director and Co-Owner, Chris Shankly with hopes of securing a bigger venue.

Both Chris and Signature Living’s Founder Lawrence Kenwright loved seeing a young man in Liverpool doing something so positive and giving back to the city. Chris and Lawrence were also blown away by Louie’s talents as a DJ and his natural flair for events. The brand and event itself have taken off so quickly, with social media marketing playing a key role in spreading the word. Signature Living’s marketing and events are all managed in-house, so this is something that really resonates with ourselves as a business.

Chris and Lawrence decided to support him and offered our Garden of Eden venue for free, with our staff, team and expertise behind him. His latest event took place in Garden of Eden on 27th December, with 400 10-14 year olds in attendance. It’s safe to say that the night was a hit. Lawrence and the Signature Living team have been so impressed by him that we have now agreed to support another event on February 17th which sold out in just 1 hour!

The Cotton Street Project

We’re delighted that Louie has chosen to donate a massive £500 from his last rave to Signature Living’s Cotton Street homeless shelter. On Friday 11th January, Louie and his mum and dad came along to make the generous donation and see what the shelter is all about. Louie and his family also had the chance to meet some of our residents and hear their stories.

Lawrence opened the shelter following the closure of Kingsway House. The Cotton Street Project is a unique homeless shelter initiative. Offering an opportunity to make life-changing connections, Cotton Street is designed to bring people together. Our social recovery program provides long-term solutions, from professional health support to training workshops.

We would like to say a big thank you to Louie and his family for their support and wish him the best of luck with his next ‘Forever Young’ events. Make sure you keep an eye out for more events this year! Head over to the Forever Young Instagram page to be kept in the loop.

Why Liverpool are the Rightful Owners of The Liver Birds

It is rumoured that the Liver Birds oversee separate sections of Liverpool. One looks inwards and watches over the locals, while the second statue stares outwards and watches over the Scouse sailors.

However, it is also rumoured that the two seabirds are an argumentative couple, facing away from each other because of an ongoing dispute. It is this fable that best epitomises Everton and Liverpool’s ongoing feud: Who has the largest claim to the Liver Birds? Everton or Liverpool.

Below, we’ve put forward our argument for Liverpool Football Club.

Liverpool and The Liver Birds

Liverpool is a city of two’s: two cathedrals, two tunnels and, in 1892, two football teams. Following the formation of the club which bores the name of the city, Liverpool Football Club adopted the Liver Bird as the team’s emblem and thus, a 126-year argument ensued.

The National Field newspaper wrote on September 19, 1892 – following Liverpool’s match with Bury – “A flag floated on the old staff, bearing the letters L.F.A surmounted with the Liver. Right proudly did it wave over the field of battle and seemed to beam on its patrons with a hopeful smile.” It seems that the “beaming” seabird was a constant fixture at Anfield – much like the banners that “wave over” the Kop today.

The Liver Birds

If any doubt or confusion remained about the seabird’s owners, when Liverpool were crowned champions for the third time in 1922, a new banner was unwound with the Liver Bird brazenly tacked in the centre even more ardently than before.

This presentation seemed like a premeditated plan to claim the civic emblem as their own and, in 1950, Liverpool began to use a club badge which featured a certain domestic seabird.

The Club Crest

It was in the 1950 FA Cup Final when the Liver Bird first featured on Liverpool’s Spice Boy-esc white shirt.

The Liverpool badge has had various makeovers since then; in 1955 the monogram ‘LFC’ was added to the emblem. Then, in 1992, The Shankly Gates and the maxim “You’ll Never Walk Alone” were included. And finally, in 1993, two eternal flames were added in memory of the 96.

But, the one constant has always been the unchanged Liver Bird.

Unsuccessful Counter Arguments

In November 2008, Liverpool Football Club unsuccessfully attempted to trademark the Liver Bird.

“The Liver Bird belongs to all the people of Liverpool, [it] is a symbol of the city,” said Flo Clucas, while a man from North Liverpool argued that the seabirds were a wider symbol of Liverpool and not Liverpool Football Club.

One of the rather more unusual arguments came from Keith Wilson, an Everton shareholder who attempted to “reclaim” the Liver Birds. Keith argued that the seabirds should be on both kits “because they’re both from Liverpool.” As one could imagine, this idea didn’t go down particularly well.

It is undeniable that the Liver Birds are Liverpool’s. However, when it comes to football, the Liver Bird is synonymous with Liverpool Football Club.

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

The Liver Birds

The Liver Bird is blazoned across the memorabilia covered walls of the unique Bastion Bar & Restaurant located within the Shankly Hotel.

The spectacular hotel is ideal for overnight stays, watching Liverpool matches and basking in and enjoying unseen memorabilia.
