Saturday 2nd July saw the launch of the much anticipated Soul Heaven – The Disco Sessions presented by Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes. The event had created a buzz on the island and long entry queues welcomed disco party goers early on in the night.
The event opened with a bang as new talent Correigh entertained the crowd with a live PA on arrival . The clued up party crowd made up of a good mixture of island friends and visitors then took to the dance floor with Deep City Soul to get in the mood for the main event with the legend that is Francois K. The Fat Lady Sings gave a fabulous introduction to FK who after a challenging week in Europe was ready to reach out with the “healing, holistic powers of disco” and boy did he reach out and get the crowd going crazy.
The spirit of Freddie Mercury was in the house as the party took over his old suite. Francois K drove the crowd crazy playing disco infused house alongside disco classics which had everyone bouncing off the walls. Tom Crane took over and worked the crowd till close. A very special mention is needed for Sunny whose bath tube karaoke provided those who wanted time on the mic with a little outlet of fun.
