Knebworth Park – Urban Soul Orchestra

Back on a warm night on the 19th of August 2017 I went to see an Orchestra with around 2000 people spread across the green with their bottles of wine, picnics and blankets at the ready. Going to see an orchestra might sound boring but not so as this Orchestra was the Urban Soul Orchestra

Urban Soul Orchestra

The Urban Soul Orchestra comprises of Strings, brass, keyboards, percussion led by Stephen Hussey who conducts the Orchestra and also plays violin. Another member of the Orchestra who doesn’t play an instrument during the set but She does play the decks and that is Sam Hall AKA DJ¬†Goldierocks.

The Vocalist were amazing too with Maxamillion Barns-Dave, Jina Burrows and Roo Savil (Check out Roo’s vocals on Youtube)

My favourite tracks the Orchestra played was “Right here, right now” originally by Fatboy Slim

If you watch the video you will see how amazing the laser light show was. It was an incredible aural visual spectacular. I have been to many gigs in the past but I have never heard such an accurate live recreation of a track before.

Just to give you an idea of what the Orchestra looked like here is a few pictures I took of the night.

 

 

 

If you have never been to see the Urban Soul Orchestra I would suggest if you have the opportunity then jump at it even if you go just for the atmosphere. It was a brilliant night with great music, great light show and great atmosphere, and if you like to dance then there was plenty of room for that too. So grab your glow sticks, your face paint and rabbit ears and make a night of it. I would give the experience 5 stars.
