Deaf Havana’s James Veck-Gilodi Announces Livestream From London Church
As UK bands begin to make their way back into venues to host special audience-free performances, Deaf Havana frontman James Veck-Gilodi has announced his plans to stream a solo show from London’s St. Pancras Church online this month.
The performance will be available to watch from 8pm BST on July 19 (grab your tickets here), with James teaming up with longtime creative collaborator Jon Stone to make this a not-to-be-missed set.
“With the suspension of the live music industry this collaboration is trying to find a new and exciting way to capture James’ unique energy and present a live show which can be watched from the comfort of the fans’ homes,” explains Jon. “The growing importance of live-streaming within the music industry means finding innovative ways to enhance the viewing experience through our collective passion and creativity. We hope the fans will enjoy the show!”
“Initially, when Jon approached me a couple of months back about doing a livestream, I wasn’t too sure, as I’m not really a big fan of livestreams,” James adds. “They don’t usually capture the energy that we all need when we go to see live music. Jon and I talked extensively about how we could try and capture something that was visually stunning, but could also recreate that buzz you get from seeing a performance in real life.
“I’ve always been a fan of reworked versions so I’ve jumped at the chance to create some slightly stranger and more out-there versions of our pre-existing songs. The end product is going to be, visually, the best performance video I have ever been involved in and I’m incredibly excited for everyone to join us.”
