The Cafe with Darren Percival & our Heavenly Band - at The Basement

Sun, 13/11/2016 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm

We are Café of the Gate of Salvation, Sydney's premier a cappella gospel choir. Inspired by the footstompin', soulful music of the African-American vocal tradition, we sing because we love to and we share our voices, to foster inclusiveness, compassion & joy – much needed in this world of ours.
Please join us as we take you on a soul-stirring gospel and soul evening, with special guest, the fabulous, Darren Percival, all supported by our wonderful Heavenly Band.

We are delighted to have Darren Percival joining us on stage. We had the very great pleasure of performing with Darren in November 2015 as part of the Rally for Climate Change and we just knew we had to do another gig together. We hope you’ll join us for a fabulous evening of soaring voices and soulful songs as only this special combo can do it.
From traditional a cappella James Cleveland gospel, to band-driven Sam Cooke and Aretha Franklin, we'll take you to the river, quench your soul and electrify your spirit with our delectable gospel and soul selection - come on down and be revived!
Darren Percival has a voice that is warm and powerful. Audiences are mesmerised by his stage presence, his original music and his charm. He delivers astonishing performances and he is a gifted vocalist with natural talent, imagination and skill.
While Darren is a singer, he now enjoys a reputation not just as one of Australia’s most accomplished entertainers but also a Gold album selling recording artist, gifted musician, and dynamic radio presenter and vocal coach.
He’s been artistically inspired since a young age and during high school while studying piano, singing and acting at a performing arts centre in his hometown of Sydney. By the time he had graduated in 1989, Australian jazz icon James Morrison had discovered Darren and together they began a decade of musical adventures.
Through his career, Darren’s dulcet tones have featured on numerous recordings, jingles and voice-overs. He’s toured as a backing singer, and you’ll find him on the album credits for many other well-known Australian artists.
