Flamingo Flame and The Groove Exchange join forces for Prince tribute

Glowing neon, 1980s inspired Flamingo Flame, alongside local funk, soul and groove group The Groove Exchange will be soundtracking a tribute night to the late, great Prince at Digbeth’s The Night Owl on June 15th.

The soul and retro nightclub based on Lower Trinity Street, has hosted the legendary Prince: A Tribute night since 2017 in tribute to the iconic artists passing. The 80s pop and rock inspired night has seen electrifying live music, visuals, fancy dress and local DJ’s play to sell out crowds of Prince fans and beyond.

Bringing back their legendary night on June 15th – The Night Owl will see live music from funk, soul and groove ensemble The Groove Exchange, a six piece outfit of harmonious soul melodies, bold funk beats and a capella covers of floor filling and nostalgic funk, disco and soul hits.

Bringing neon and glitter in the form of dance synth and indie bass are the euphorically electric Flamingo Flame. A band who’s 80s dance and pop inspirations are dolloped between heavy bass lines and synths that fluctuate between 1975-esque indie pop and New Order dance hits.

Mark Butler, frontman of the notorious local tribute to The Rolling Stones, Get Stoned, will also be treating audiences to his covers of rock & roll and retro guitar classics.

Prince: A Tribute is more than just a night of blaring Prince out from the DJ booth – its a chance for those inspired by the music, the fashion and the iconography of Prince and his era to celebrate more than a life, but a movement itself.

Tickets for Prince: A Tribute on June 15th are available here.
