World's premier female DJ Lisa Lashes coming to Cumbria
Last updated at 11:29, Saturday, 16 February 2013
The world’s premier female DJ is coming to Workington to get up close and personal with her fans.
Lisa Lashes, a legend in the dance music scene, will be at The Vine Bar in Workington on April 6 as part of her boutique tour.
She has played at many of the world’s major festivals, entertaining thousands of clubbers.
But now she will perform at a series of hand-picked ‘intimate’ venues across the UK and Ireland, including The Vine Bar.
Lisa wants to thank the fans who have loyally supported her for more than a decade.
She said she is looking forward to coming to Workington.
“After playing a few intimate events in 2012, I realised I missed getting close and personal with the crowd.
“This tour will allow me to get closer to the people who have supported me and allow me to be on a one-to-one level.
“I feel lucky and honoured to get a chance to do this while still being picked to play all the festivals, arena and club dates internationally. So for this reason I’m really looking forward to these handful of one-off shows which I’ve decided to do on my boutique tour.”
The last time Lisa performed in Workington was in 2007 to sell-out crowds at the Fusion nightclub.
She will be headlining alongside DJ Genix, a leading dance artist in his own right.
Genix has also earned a Guinness World Record for the longest set in history – 84 hours – to raise money for charity.
Pub owner Paul Scott, who is spearheading a campaign to bring top acts into the town, said he had been hounding her manager for 18 months to get her to perform.
He said: “I was gobsmacked because I never thought it would happen.
“We have tried to bring her in two or three times but we were told we were too small.
“But she has agreed to come as part of this boutique tour. It is massive for us and for the town.”
The coup is the latest in a long line of big musical names to come to the venue.
English rock legends The Quireboys performed and Uli Jon Roth, former lead guitarist for The Scorpions, played two gigs in November.
Thin Lizzy’s bass guitarist Marco Mendoza, who has also worked alongside rock legends like Whitesnake, was also at The Vine Bar in October.
Lisa Lashes tickets go on sale on Monday and can be bought from the Music Store on Oxford Street, the Grapes on Pinfold Street or via www.facebook.com/vinebarworkington.
Tickets are £10 for the early birds who book before March 15 but the price will go up to £15.
Also performing sets will be Dina Watson, Tom Hayward and John McCrickerd.
