The Indulgence Show, 29 Sept- 1 Oct, Novotel, West London, is showcasing a variety of musical talents and performances, from jazz bands and string quartets to rock bands and a Drummerthon. There will be some familiar names performing throughout the three days of the show, reinforcing its position as one of the leading luxury music, Hi-Fi and lifestyle events.
During the packed three-day musical extravaganza, there will be a flow of artists demonstrating their musical talents in the Chablis suite through 30-60 minute stage sets. The artists will include Elles Bailey and her band, Elles Springs, who will be showcasing 45 – 60-minute acoustic gigs on Friday & Saturday during the day. Joe Donnelly and J.J. Gilmour, previous members of The Silencers, will also be performing 45-minute sets every day as part of their duo band, Caezar.
Visionary jazz drummer, Vince Dunn, will be returning to the show by popular demand, where he will be performing at the aftershow party on Saturday (30 September). The Vince Dunn Big Band will include guest vocals from Deleelah; Shane Hampsheir and Michelle John. Michelle John is a voice coach and has toured the world doing backing vocals for Carole King; Eric Clapton; George Michael; Paulo Nutini; Sheryl Crow; Annie Lennox and Lenny Kravitz.
Vince Dunn will also be hosting The Indulgence Drum Summit again this year, a showcase of five well-respected drummers. The performers will include Vince Dunn; Stanley Ohio; William Taylor; Colin Woolway and Siemy Di.
The 25-minute London drum summit presented by The Drum Clinic will be held in The Chablis Suite of the Novotel Conference Centre to mark the closing of the Indulgence Show on the Sunday (1 October ), demonstrating a wide range of drumming techniques and will finish with a five-man ‘Drummerthon’. Visitors will also have the chance to see and try the drum kits straight after the performances.
Vince Dunn says, “Me and my band are very much looking forward to returning to The Indulgence Show. Last year we saw an abundance of music enthusiasts all under one roof generally enjoying great sound. It was amazing to see such an array of visitors, some of whom you wouldn’t even think are audiophiles, coming together and appreciating various kinds of music. I have some very exciting artists coming along with me this year and I just hope we receive the same reception and reaction as we did in the last show.”
Vernon Hamblin, The Indulgence Show organiser, adds, “We pride ourselves on bringing great musical talents to our show. This year is no different, with music from ex members of The Silencers, one of Scotland’s top bands; performances from Elles Bailey, a Dutch singer songwriter, and her band, and much more. We always try our best to showcase good quality music along with our top-range equipment and we anticipate that many visitors to the show will have never experienced such high-quality music before. The Vince Dunn Big Band will also be returning this year, which everyone is excited about.”
Visitors to The Indulgence Show will also enjoy a variety of buskers around the conference centre playing the ukulele, electric guitar, saxophone, trumpet and many more instruments, so everyone will be able to experience great music from a diverse array of artists.
