The Jebus Revival, Saturday in London City





Jan Couch     -      Tammy Faye Bakker     -      Vestal Goodman

This weekend in London City, we're holding a "Revival".  A toe-tapping high tempo, deep south, Gospel concert, starring our versions of Jan Crouch and Tammy Faye Bakker as hosts, with Vestal Goodman (known as Vestal Virgin) as the lead performer in our show.

In America, selling God is a multi-billion dollar, tax free business, raking in wealth for its televangelists, unimaginable even by the most famous of performers.

Each week millions of people tune into crying preachers who offer everything from cures for terminal illnesses to guarantees of making you as rich as them, so long as you send them your hard earned cash on a regular basis.

The premise being that God is a bit strapped for cash and that a mighty oak will grow from the acorn you plant.

Perpetually embroiled in scandals of racketeering, prostitution and embezzlement, it is also a cut throat business with each ministry condemning other ministries and producing evidence on each other,  as they compete for the prize fund of your money.

Kenneth Copeland     -     Benny Hinn     -     Robert Tilton

Top of the tree is Kenneth Copeland, with a tax free estimated worth of over a billion dollars, a fleet of private jets and his own airport, all used for spreading the word of the ministry... and holidays.

Every so often things go wrong, as it did in 1987 for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who were the original Satellite Televangelists. Jim was found guilty of mail fraud and sent to prison for 47 years, but paroled just 5 years later. His mistake was to oversell time-share stays at Heritage USA, a city he had built to spread the good word.

Since the Bakkers mistakes, other televangelists have stopped offering tangible assets and instead offer to use their own hot line direct to God (who speaks to them constantly) to get you the things you want.  Since this cannot be measured, its all perfectly legal and profitable in the extreme!

However, with such extreme stakes involved, the production value of the shows produced by each ministry is paralleled only by Walt Disney studios.

Our Revival concert highlights the very best of the glitz and glamour you can expect as your sins are melted away.  It is tongue in cheek, has a free bar with hard liquor, the occasional hooker for our preachers and lots of crying.

We are not poking fun at people's beliefs, we are however aiming to lambaste the highest paying entertainment job in the world.

Starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with 'The Hungry Goodmans' on stage from 1pm SL time.

Blondie on Saturday



Forty years ago, waitress Debbie Harry, who had been performing part-time in a folk band, formed Blondie with her friend Chris Stein.

In 1976 they released their first album Blondie and from then on became a huge success in Australia, England and America.

Although the bulk of their hits were in a relatively short timespan from 1978 to 1981, their most successful release, Maria was not until the band reformed, many years later in 1999.

Now regularly touring again, you can enjoy the hits once more at The Blondie Tribute Concert, this Saturday in London City.  The party begins at  12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.

Joe Dolan on Saturday



Continuing the Irish Festival for St Patrick's, top entertainer Joe Dolan in Concert on Saturday.

Joe Dolan was an Irish entertainer and recording artist.

He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 2pm SL.

Going Irish: The Nolans in Concert, on Saturday




Kicking off  the Irish Festival, it's The Nolans!

The Nolan's, who originally formed in 1974 as The Nolan Sisters, are an Irish/British girl group, famous for uptempo covers of well known songs.

In their own right, they are most famous for I'm In The Mood For Dancing, which when released in 1979, topped the charts around the world, and to this day, remains one of the most famous disco songs of the era.

The sisters, Anne, Denise, Maureen, Linda and Bernie, became regular favourites, appearing on many weekly prime-time shows, including The Two Ronnies.

Family feuds, ill health and the death of Bernie, put a stop to their act in the 2000's but the band reformed again in 2009, but stopped performing again by 2014.

Enjoy this show on Saturday at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), featuring all the Nolan's at the height of their popularity, with special guest, Kim Woodburn, who recently appeared quite demented along side Coleen Nolan on multiple shows!

Everly Brothers on Saturday



Appearing  this Saturday: The Everly Brothers.

Don and Phil Everly first became famous back in 1957 with Bye Bye Love and quickly established themselves as Rock n Rollers for the rest of that decade. Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy's Clown and Walk Right Back followed successively before they moved into the rock-a-ballad style they later became synonymous with.

In the mid 1960's they chart topped with, Crying In The Rain, Devoted To You, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Love Is Strange, Ebony Eyes, When Will I Be Loved and other softer rock songs.

By the start of the 1970's both brothers had become addicted to amphetamines which lead to a nervous breakdown for Don and the duo stopped recording. By the time both were recovered, disagreements had turned into a feud and the brothers did not perform, nor communicate with each other for a decade and pursued fruitless solo careers.

Thirteen years after the split, they performed some tense reunion concerts together beginning in the UK in 1983 where they had agreed that they would only talk to each other whilst on stage, but only if it was necessary.  Encouraged by the media hype of the reunion, in 1984 they recorded, On The Wings Of A Nightingale which was to be their final song to enter the charts.

By the 1990's the brothers had made peace with each other, but their stop-start careers had eroded their following and they continued to perform one-off reunion concerts every few years until their last appearance in 2004 as featured artists for the Simon & Garfunkel tour Old Friends, Live On Stage.

Phil Everly died in 2014, but the Everly Brothers legacy will live on.
We invite you to experience their heyday and bask in the incredible love songs penned by these talented and troubled souls.

Party in the Park is at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the stage show an hour later.
