After a sell-out performance by Coldplace, the world’s top-ranked Coldplay tribute band, one of the country’s leading disco and soul acts are now set perform in Enfield.

The six-piece group Mojo Rising will perform at the Black Barn at Forty Hall this Saturday (March 10).

Mojo Rising front man Lee Martin explains: “We started the band about six years ago having actually discovered one another online. It was one of those weird situations when we were all looking for a band.”

“My idea for the concept was that if you went to a party, how you can have a live act that performs like a DJ. We do our own mixing and it’s about keeping the dance floor going at all times instead of stop-start. Sometimes we do 25 minutes without stopping.”

Between them the singers have years’ of experience, performing in West End productions such as Fame, Grease and The Blues Brothers, with the rest of the band made up of musicians who have made appearances at the likes of Ronnie Scott’s, The 100 Club and even on BBC Radio.

Lee adds: “We’ve known about the Black Barn for some time and have always wanted to play there. The problem is we’ve been so busy but we’re delighted we’ve found a date.

“All the band are soul, funk and disco freaks which some people might find somewhat unusual given the fact that we are all aged around the 30 mark. Not many bands are that age play that kind of music.”

Tickets priced £10 for Mojo Rising are available either on the door or in advance from Doors open at 7pm with the music getting under way at 7.30 starting with a support act.
