Playing the best in soul and hip-hop
2nd and 3rd February 2018
The January drought is finally over! Come celebrate on Friday 2nd or Saturday 3rd February at Level 1 Bar, Tate Modern with an evening of Hip Hop Karaoke. Unleash your inner Kanye, get stuck into Tate’s extensive beer list including guest beers from Brooklyn Brewery and make a well-earned dent in that January pay cheque!
Level 1 Bar is renowned for its excellent craft beer offering. As a special for the weekend, Tate will showcase three guest beers from top US craft brewery, Brooklyn Brewery that give a good mix of styles and flavours. From their much-loved Brooklyn Lager and winter seasonal Insulated Dark Lager to the brand new Naranjito Orange Peel Pale Ale, available for a rare tasting in the UK ahead of its official launch in autumn 2018. The bar also serves quality wine by the keg and barrel-aged cocktails.
On the night, with some Dutch courage, guests will have the opportunity to channel their inner performer when Hip Hop Karaoke invites amateur rappers to the stage!
The UK’s original Hip Hop Karaoke is a true London and national fixture and for the last decade DJ Rob Pursey, host Bobby Champagne Jr. and the HHK team have helped thousands of people live out their rap fantasies live on stage! With hundreds of songs to choose from, this is your chance to experience what it’s like to feel real crowd energy as you take on the rhymes of your favourite rappers. Whether it’s old school gems from the 80s, 90s and 00s or the latest records from Drake, Nicki and Kendrick, Hip Hop Karaoke is the place to let go of all inhibitions and feel the exhilaration of smashing it live on stage.
Vinyl obsessive, Hip-Hop, R&B & Soul DJ Rob Pursey says: “Hip Hop Karaoke is a euphoric, addictive experience and definitely something to cross off the bucket-list!” DJ Rob Pursey will be drawing on his vast music knowledge to make for a Tate payday party to remember.
