THE CHURCH // BIG IN LIGHTS

It's time all you sinners went back to church. To a service where party is the new praising, where you'll be baptised in absinthe and made to dance with the devil himself. Hell, even Jesus get's down and dirty at this show!

'The Church' is a raucous interactive party experience and parody of a Deep South Pentecostal church brimming with the best soul, blues and disco tunes. Fronted by the insane pastor 'Michael Alabama Jackson' the service leads the audience through a sermon of serious partying. Since it's premiere in May 2013 the show has moved from the fringe tents onto the main music stages at numerous festivals including Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Party, Isle of Wight Festival, Bestival and the Edinburgh Fringe. The rest of 2015 saw even more conversions as The Church continued its Divine Mission touring with the raucous Molotov Jukebox around the UK and performing a special service at the Madness House of Fun Weekender in November. Think Sister Act on speed as the converts keep on growing!

Plus support from....

Big in Lights - an electro powerhouse hailing from Bristol - combine powerful vocals with compelling synthesizers, melodic sax riffs and killer bass lines.

Comprising of vocalist Amanda Hug n Kiss, vocalist and guitarist Brock Freeway, saxophonist Devon Heartbeat, bassist Papa Goldlove and DJ Chrissy Hotpants, Big in Lights distil a wide range of musical influences ranging from soul, jazz and blues to hip hop, funk and disco.

Described by BBC Introducing as 'like somebody has cryogenically frozen Quincy Jones and then forced him to mate with Prince in the future' these guys are ones to watch.
