On 20th October 2019 London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom in association with Knot the Truth Ltd (KTT) will present an evening celebrating soul, funk, new wave, disco and the music of the Bee Gees hosted by RJ Gibb, son of the legendary musical icon Robin Gibb.
Backed by a high-octane band, visitors to the capital’s famed art deco space will witness RJ Gibb performing songs from his own catalogue as well as classic material from his father and uncles. Themed to the golden era of disco that the Bee Gees dominated, the show will feature archetypal songs such as How Deep is Your Love, To Love Somebody and hits from Saturday Night Fever.
August’s VIP preview event at The Ballroom was a resounding success and was attended by a plethora of industry figures including Tomi Ray Brown and James Brown Jr – wife and son of The Godfather of Funk, Heather Small of ‘M People’, greats from the sporting world were in attendance including legendary spin-bowler for England’s Cricket Team Monty Panesar as well as esteemed Hollywood actors like Steven Bauer, Ken Davitian, Armand Assante and many more. Performers on the night included Blue Weaver, original keyboard player for The Bee Gees, alongside West End stars from The London Cabaret Club, who’s breathtaking dance routines enhanced the disco atmosphere.
RJ Gibb worked extensively alongside his father Robin, co-composing The Titanic Requiem with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and producing much of Robin’s later work, including the song Instant Love - as well as co-composing various tracks on 50 St Catherine’s Drive, his father’s last pop album. In what will be a heartfelt celebration, RJ Gibb will call on family and friends to honour his father’s legacy, while adding his own inimitable flair as a performer to proceedings, alongside a varied selection of industry figures that will keep the show full of surprises.
Truly a night to remember and certainly one not to be missed.
