An explosive night of top music from the 90's
Featuring Cappella, Rozalla & Urban Cookie Collective
And DJ Paul Gordon
Cappella are an Italian Eurodance act formed in 1987 by producer Gianfranco Bortolotti. The act went through a number of line-up changes over the years but were most successful in the early 1990s when it was fronted by British performers Kelly Overett and Rodney Bishop. Their biggest hit was 'U Got 2 Let the Music', which reached number 2 in the UK in 1993.
Rozalla's first UK single 'Born to Luv Ya' became a club hit in 1990. The singer's career really took off when the dance anthem 'Everybody's Free (To Feel Good)' reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart in 1991. It became a Top 10 hit in many European countries soon afterwards and reached the Billboard Top 40 the following year. It remains her biggest hit to date. It was later included on her debut album Everybody's Free, which peaked at number 20 in the UK Albums Chart and went silver. The album spawned two more sizeable hits in 'Faith (In the Power of Love)' and 'Are You Ready to Fly'.
Urban Cookie Collective are a British Eurodance band, best known for their 1993 hit single 'The Key, The Secret'.The band was founded by Rohan Heath who had previous experience with groups such as Yargo and Manchester DJ A Guy Called Gerald. After a tour of Japan supporting the Happy Mondays, he left A Guy Called Gerald to work with the rave band Together. Heath went on to work with Jamaican reggae artist Eek-A-Mouse before concentrating on his new project, Urban Cookie Collective.
