Back on stage this coming summer with a very special live performance once a month and for this season only are the iconic UK funk/soul/pop group IMAGINATION!
Original co-founder Errol Kennedy, is thrilled to be returning to Ibiza with the opening at LAS DALIAS on Thursday 16th June starting at 22:00 (doors open H.19:00).
You will be guaranteed a flashback with enough music and lights to keep you going in the heat of the night that you’ll most likely find yourself burning up and wondering was that just an illusion?
Totally charmed by the true Ibiza, Errol agreed to three more performances: 24th July, 25th August and 25th September to give everybody on the island a chance to dance and party together – of course all at the brilliant LAS DALIAS!
2016 is an important year in music history – 35 years since IMAGINATION’s distinctive groovy bass-line sounds first hit the airwaves and gold lame hit the dance floors around the globe…. in fact it was 1981 when they released their chart-breaking platinum debut single (and also platinum debut album!) BODY TALK, which ultimately led the band to become the funk-soul-pop legends the name IMAGINATION is now known for over three decades later.
A significant milestone like this needs celebrating and so does Errol Kennedy, who is a producer also in addition to being the co-founder and drummer of the band. He will be releasing a BRAND NEW and UPBEAT POP single entitled “YOU CAN BE (All You Want To Be)”. The song is super uplifting and encourages people to follow their desires to become what they want to be.
Produced by Errol himself, he also co-wrote the song along with Mike Edmond, Patrick Brathwaite and Robert Taylor. Lead vocals by Rohan Reckord. Mixed by Paulo Silva & Errol Kennedy. Cover design by Kriss Höss (#KDeluxeLDN).
Release due on 29/04/2016 (all major online stores and here).
Earlier this year, to let the legacy of IMAGINATION live on, Errol Kennedy also released a very special ”GREATEST HITS LIVE” album which he recorded when touring the UK with his own band during their UK tour in 2010-11. The album features not just all of Imagination’s hits like SO GOOD SO RIGHT, CHANGES, MUSIC AND LIGHTS, IN AND OUT OF LOVE, BURNING UP (to name but a few) and of course IMAGINATION’s signature hit JUST AN ILLUSION but it also includes bonus tracks such as special instrumental versions and a fantastic live version of the new single YOU CAN BE (All You Want To Be).
You who think that Ibiza is only electronic dance music will be surprised! This magical atmosphere in the heart of the magnificent island is not to be missed, two stages full of unique music to dance to in the familiar and friendly surroundings of LAS DALIAS. Warming Up the night and crowd will be Jessica Henderson (Diva Jess) from Ibiza Global Radio with her pure deep funk DJ session just before the concert. From midnight the main room’s volume will be pumped up to the “Black Dance” night with a selection of pure pre- electronic dance music sessions from the last century by Cloud J Deep performing with live resident musicians such as Trace Harris, Domenico Caputo and friends. They are well known to surprise everybody by playing unforgettable sessions. And all this will be captivated by the best surrounding visuals by Innocence00. With a ticket price of only €15 for pre-sales and €20 on the door, residents and tourists of all ages are strongly recommended to: “… put on your favourite dancing shoes and let’s party with the best live soul-funk @Ibiza”. Music is life.
