VIDEO: Sunset concerts are set to welcome Toploader to Jersey

Saturday 22 April 2017

The platinum-selling group are most famous for their cover of the song ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’, however, they’ll be aiming to get Islanders dancing at sunset as they gear up to play the Sunset Concert on 24 June.

Now, into the ninth year of a partnership with Ashburton Investments, the Sunset Concerts are an annual event run by the National Trust for Jersey.

The family friendly open-air concerts have become firm fixtures in the Island's summer calendar and are held over two evenings in the natural amphitheatre at Grantez as the sun goes down over St Ouen’s Bay.

Toploader will take to the stage on Saturday 24 June while local bands The Word on the Street and The Kings of Swing will get the party started on Friday 23 June.

Charles Alluto, Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, said: “We have pledged to save a further 1000 vergées of unspoilt coastline over the next twenty years.

“With the much valued support of Ashburton Investments we are able to raise funds during the Sunset Concerts to help us achieve that aim, so that people can continue to enjoy the coastal beauty which surrounds us”.

The Word on the Street will deliver funk, pop and R&B sounds on Friday 23 June alongside The Kings of Swing who will perform hits from the ‘40s and ‘’50s, as well as tunes made famous by Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams.  

Toploader will then bring the curtain down on Saturday night.

Since forming in 1997, Toploader have over two million album sales to their name and a string of top 20 hits. Their highly anticipated 4th album, ‘Seeing Stars’, is scheduled for release in May and the band are heading out on a full UK tour and a host of festival appearances across Europe,  including Jersey.
