A NIGHT of soul, disco and rock 'n' roll is coming to Symondsbury Tithe Barn.

Jess Upton & The Guilty Pleasures will perform with support from The Vinyl Monkeys on Saturday October 21.

Long before the concept of Guilty Pleasures existed, there was only pleasure. Jess Upton & The Guilty Pleasures want to take you to that place again. The band members first met when rowing along the disco floor, line astern, to the strains of Oops Upside Your Head in 1979. Later that same evening, they found themselves dancing around the same handbag.

That handbag belonged to Jess Upton: and thus an unbreakable bond formed.

Best known for fronting The Jess Upton Soul Band from the age of 17, Jess’s latest offering is a mixture of soul, disco, rock ‘n’ roll, or “anything that makes you run to the dance floor to do The Hustle!”

Sharing the stage with them on the night will be the immensely popular Vinyl Monkeys, who must be Bridport’s hardest working band! They are three mates who’ve been gigging together for over 15 years, their set covers a wide range of great songs from the rockier side of pop – in their own words “three guys with a passion to make you all dance”! Your evening is in safe and guilt-free hands.
