Join the RV Jazz Festival 10th Birthday celebration as we present a thunderous triple bill for our Saturday night party at The Grand with South African influenced band Ubunye, Ghana's Isaac Burituro & The Rail Abandon, and Wah Wah 45 DJ,  Dom Servini, bringing our 10th Festival Party night to an end around 1am, all for £12 (advance tickets).
 
8.30pm - Ubunye unites singers hailing from Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa (now Huddersfield-based) with gospel and R'n'B players from Yorkshire. Imagine raw power of African voices in harmony; the funding rhythm of Africa, blended with the explosive energy of a live band. Vibrant Zulu performers and seasoned UK musicians combine ancient tradition with contemporary flare. 
 
9.30pm - Isaac Burituro & The Rail Abandon bring a specially commissioned international band performance, featuring superstar Ghanian xylophonist Isaac Birituro playing with the Rail Abandon, a group of brilliant UK based musicians led by Grammy Award winning producer Sonny Johns.  Recently signed to the groundbreaking Wah Wah 45s label in London and premiered on BBC 6Music by Tom Ravenscroft, this will be an 8-piece band playing joyous West African soaked grooves with vocals and horn section wrapped around Isaac’s virtuosic xylophone skills, more food for the dance floor!
 
And if that wasn’t enough, the Wah Wah 45s label will be bringing its 20th birthday celebrations to our 10th, so expect more fireworks on the dance floor from label manager and DJ Dom Servini, as the Festival party night enjoys an extension into the early hours on a Bank Holiday weekend.
