Free Music In London

This month is free music month at the Scoop. Located in front of City Hall on the south bank of the River Thames, the amphitheatre has been temporary home to a number of events over the last couple of months with free theatre productions and film screenings. Now it is the turn of music with a little dancing thrown in for good measure!

Today, at 12.30pm, there is a Salsa dance workshop and demonstration. Latin moves are the order of the day and top Salsa band, Conjunto Sabroso, help get your hips swinging and toes tapping with their South American sounds.

Tonight at 6.30pm, Conjunto Sabroso return with the current salsa dance world champions - John Vasquez and Judy Aguilar from Columbia. Ola Latina present this evening of entertainment and, after the highly anticipated salsa demonstration, you are encouraged to join the salsa spectacular and dance the night away!

Tomorrow (Thursday 10th) is Calypso Day! At 12.30pm there is a Calypso dance workshop with Antonio Susinni and then, at 6.30pm, Sunnie Dae And Her Hot Kats take the floor. A mixture of rare plantation blues and Caribbean folk music will quickly have you up dancing and, in traditional style, there will be some audience participation with “call and response” singing. A great evening for all the family!

On Friday, it is the turn of London-based band “We Used To Make Things” at 12.30pm. This unusually named band comprises six men and one woman who perform a mix of original pop music with a wide range of influences. This feel-good band are sure to get you in the right mood for the weekend!

At 6.30pm the All Stars Collective entertain the Scoop audience with, as yet, unannounced Special Guests. This group of musicians have worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry including George Michael, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez and Westlife to name but a few. Now they step out of the shadow of these superstars and bring you an evening of original and exciting material.
