Michelle John was born to sing!

After many years of singing on the albums of a variety of artists ranging from Spiritualised to Tom Jones, Michelle released a 5 track EP of songs written by her entitled ” Little Me “ and in 2015 she released a Gospel Single with Karl Nova entitled “Shining On”.

Her singing life continued with the opportunity to perform with Herbie Hancock and Sheryl Crow and recorded with the phenomenal Lenny Kravitz. A highlight in Michelle’s career was the invitation to perform for President Barak Obama at The White House and most recently she has been on a World Tour with Joss Stone.

2017 Michelle enters The Voice UK and takes the country by storm, every week the public voted her in. She finished as the 4th place Finalist. The Voice UK chapter ended and a new one began! Her new show ‘The Voice Behind The Voice’ In the show she pays homage to many of the artists she has performed with, introduces the audience to some of her own original music.

Michelle delivers every time, her signature powerhouse vocals, guarantees an evening of sincerity, emotion, laughter and joy. We are delighted to have Michelle join us and we hope you will love her as much as we do.

The Gin Trap Band in the Casita
8:15 – 9:00pm and 9:45 – 10:30pm

Gin Trap 2

The Gin Trap House Band are staging a revival of the best rhythm ‘n’ blues, jump-blues, and jazz of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The band is a coming together of some the mightiest musicians in London.

Their stompin’ rhythms, infectious horns, and soulful vocals will make you want to dance all night long with their authentic versions of the real, original dance music.

They play a whole host of tunes that you already love, and some tunes that you don’t know yet, but as soon as you hear them you’ll wonder why they aren’t already staples of your own collection. If you like the music of Ray Charles, Fats Domino, or Nina Simone you’re in for a real treat.

FB Pocket Orchestra in the Garden 
6:00 – 7:30pm

The members originally began playing together in various FB Music & Media projects and officially began playing as The FB Pocket Orchestra in 2012.

Hot jazz, blues, ragtime & popular dances of the 1920/30s & earlier – Their style of music is so richly atmospheric that it whips you back through time, transplanting you to a swanky New York bar in the mid 1920s. A  lively and atmospheric bands that are without a doubt one of the best jazz bands working the circuit today.
