With special guests

Odyssey

We can’t wait to welcome this 70s/80s chart topping trio. From their debut album emerged their first smash single – “Native New Yorker”, an international hit in 1977. A couple of years later, the group cut their “Hang Together” album. In the UK, “Use It Up” shot to the top ten, followed by “If You’re Looking For A Way Out”, “Inside Out”, and the Lamont Dozier classic “Going Back To My Roots”, among others..

lemar

Lemar shot to fame when he appeared on BBC’s Fame Academy in 2002, and went on to become one of the most successful British male solo artists of the last 20 years, having had seven UK Top 10 singles and selling over two million albums worldwide. His awards include three MOBO Awards (two for Best UK male and one for Best Album) and two BRIT Awards for Best British Urban Act. Over the years, he has shared the stage with Beyoncé, Lionel Richie, Mary J Blige, George Benson, and Justin Timberlake.

wonderband

Boogie on the Beach regulars, Wonderband, are a superb 9-piece band. This year, they will be performing their amazing ‘Soul Legends Tribute’, fronted by Ivan J Dellimore and the BBC’s ‘The Voice’ finalist C J Edwards. The show delivers both outstanding entertainment and musicality at the very highest levels.

brandon block

Brandon’s incredible career started in 1985 in London, before the emergence of House music in the late 80s brought numerous gigs at super clubs including Ministry of Sound, Turnmills and Miss Moneypenny’s and several appearances on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix. Brandon cemented his ‘superstar DJ’ status alongside Alex P on the legendary terrace at Space, Ibiza in the 90s. At Boogie on the Beach 2024, Brandon will play a carefully curated Disco House set, in keeping with the theme of the party.

A word from Brandon: “Bring your dancing shoes!”

jay rachet

Jay’s fabulous career gives no impression of slowing up. When asked about his style, Jay says, ‘i’ve always found myself playing records for the girls. If they’re happy and dancing, the party always has a great vibe!’. Jay was, and still is, a resident DJ at the highly regarded club night ‘Bump ‘n’ Hustle’, where he has always specialised in RnB. In fact, RnB also featured in one of the longest-running weekly radio shows in the UK that Jay hosted, for 17 years, on Bournemouth station, FIRE Radio.

Known for his impeccable style, individuality, and stage presence, Mike specialises in a cross-genre mix of Soul, Funk and Disco, never failing to ignite the party and keep the floor moving – a master of his craft.
