23/07/2016: Saturday night saw the KlubKidz stage another of their regular FlashBack takeovers of the White Swan as DJs Jason Prince and Matt Unique joined resident Stevie Tee on the decks for a journey through 80s and 90s disco right thru to bang up to date house classics.
The mostly local audience of east end totty was treated to a fantastic show from the first lady of disco and soul, Miss Angie Brown with a set of covers like Cher’s ‘Believe’ and Kylie’s ‘Better The Devil’ as well as some of her own hits with Bizarre inc like ‘I’m Gonna get You’ and ‘Playing With Knives’. Always an amazingly energetic and fun performer, Angie was on good form and kicked off her shoes to sing and dance thru the crowd.
The White Swan itself has had a major refurb and is now a gleaming east end palace of chrome and marble with a great new terrace out the front, and next month it’s the old girls 31st birthday (the White Swan not Liam) with a whole host of guests including our Eurovision entrants Joe and Jake.
