Very excited to announce that I will be DJing at this event alongside Afrobeats talent TeeJayBoy who will be performing his hits live at Barefoot Joes in Peckham.
What can I say? Raheem DeVaughn blew us away. The live performance from #theloveking was wonderful. It was soulful, it was deep, engaging, exciting and he was simply amazing.
He treated us to tracks from each of his many albums. He had support from Wes Felton (the other half of their dual act The Crossrhodes, whose awesome album Footprints on the Moon was out in 2017).
As with all the best soul artists Raheem DeVaughn had the crowd singing along and creating unique call and response soul vibez.
Be in no doubt Raheem DeVaughn is a SOUL LEGEND!!
The warm up act Xamvolo was super cool too and a perfect warm up for Raheem DeVaughn. I will definitely be looking out for new music by this up and coming UK soul artist. You can follow him @xamvolo on Twitter.
The neo hippy soul rock staaarrrr!
I’ve been a huge fan of Raheem DeVaughn since his debut album The Love Experience back in 2005.
I would play that album OVER and over and tell eevverybody I met about it. And seeing Raheem perform it live at the Jazz Cafe in Camden, London (2006) was a live music experience that was just out of this world! I went to hundreds of concerts in my 20s but this is one of the few that really really stays clearly in my mind, years later. I remember how he had his brother up on stage painting the scene (a painting of himself painting Raheem and the band). How Raheem and the band all dramatically collapsed on the stage in sync. How Raheem got down from the stage to dance with a lady in the front row. The various costume changes. The crowd participation….., but above all else the mind blowing vocal talent, the music, the passion and the Soul!
Some years and many quality albums and outstanding shows later Raheem DeVaughn is back again at the Jazz Cafe in Camden on 26th June 2018. So if your looking for a great show to go to this June, this has to be top of the list.
