One of the original godfathers of UK garage DJ Spoony, recently embarked on a new live venture called Garage Classical, working alongside acclaimed composer and conductor Katie Chatburn and the esteemed Ignition Orchestra. Garage Classical has in turn become a force within the live and orchestra world’s with a string of high profile performances in some of the UK’s most iconic venues.
Following on from two iconic, sold-out shows at The Barbican and Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo, which saw the original Dreem Teem member curate and craft classic tracks bringing out special guests including Ms Dynamite, Mike Skinner & The Heartless Crew; Spoony and Chatburn went onto to record and release a high-energy studio album released via RCA/Sony featuring the likes of Lily Allen, The Sugababes and many more.
More recently Garage Classical remarkably sold out The Royal Albert Hall, bookmarking a moment in time for the Garage genre, bringing out a flurry of huge surprise special guests including Craig David, Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith, So Solid and a roll-call of the ‘who’s who’ of Garage Royalty.
Summer 2020 saw another ground-breaking moment, selling out Kew The Music, a 6,500 capacity outdoor headline show embedded in the glorious grounds of West London’s iconic Kew Gardens.
Stand by for the next move as Spoony and Garage Classical continue to document the genre in the most dynamic and original way.
Guest features to be announced soon, before the 3rd instalment of his celebrated Garage Classical series; an explosive live show at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
Expect to be taken on an intricate journey through one of music’s most timeless genres, exploring the rich tapestry of sounds that defined this era.
