Audio Show Deluxe 2024 is a departure from conventional audio events in the UK and one of the key differences is our commitment to providing excellent entertainment for our guests.
This year at Audio Show Deluxe our live music events are loosely based around a jazz theme and we have some fabulous artists to entertain you whilst taking a break in our dedicated jazz-bar space at the show.
(Saturday at Noon)
BowFiddle were hugely popular at Audio Show Deluxe 2023, so much so that we invited them back to perform a more jazz-oriented set as a trio at Audio Show Deluxe 2024.
Bowﬁddle have performed at a wide range of prestigious venues such as Buckingham Palace, Blenheim Palace, Goodwood House, Spencer House, Wallace Collection, Claridges, Woburn Abbey, and many top London hotels.
The players have worked with the likes of Joan Armatrading, Take That, Alesha Dixon, Spice Girls, Shirley Bassey, Madonna, and Peter Gabriel to name a few; and on another note The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Opera, Moscow City Ballet; plus West End shows Matilda, Ghost, Les Miserables and Lion King again to name a few.
The quartet performed recently at the wedding of Richard Osman and also privately for the King of Bahrain in one of his homes.
THE SWEETHEARTS (Saturday at 16:00)
The Sweethearts are a female vocal trio who are requested to sing at high-end events worldwide. With amazing vocals and slick harmonies, this stunning trio sings everything and for every occasion.
Individually, the singers have amassed a vast number of credits having performed in theatre, television, cruise ships, and have played world-renowned venues such as Wembley Arena, The Barbican, and The Dubai Opera. The singers have had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest names in showbiz including the National Symphony Orchestra and the legendary Kid Creole.
Together they are an exciting collective of talent and have added glamour, charisma, and unrivaled entertainment to many events worldwide and to some of London’s most prestigious venues including Claridge’s, Soho House, The Century Club & Quaglino’s.
ANTONIO FORCIONE (Sunday at Noon)
Audiences are guaranteed a powerful show of wit, personality, and musical virtuosity.
Antonio Forcione is an artist in every sense of the word, hailed as one of the most charismatic, unconventional guitarists at large in the musical world today. With a host of international awards under his belt, and 20 albums released to date, this eclectic composer never ceases to stun his audience on stage, leading him to be referred to as the ‘Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar”. His solo performances never fail to bring the house down, let alone when he is performing in a duo, as a trio, or with his quartet of international musicians.
He breaks the mould of most conventional guitar sounds, be it in the field of jazz, Spanish, African, Brazilian or improvised music, with ferocious virtuosity, passion and humour. He has shared the stage and recorded with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians including Charlie Haden, Angelique Kidjo, Trilok Gurtu, Larry Coryell, Diego el Cigala, and many more (see list below) as well as supporting giants such as Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin, Zucchero and Van Morrison amongst others.
