Big Vern n the Shootahs have just returned to Scotland after a stunning road-trip across the world to perform at the Great British Ball, held in the Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This event had a ‘Casino Royale 007 theme’ and the 700 guests at this sold out party were treated to the band on top form, playing to a rammed full dancefloor for two hours.
The boys were flown from Glasgow to Kuala Lumpur with Emirates airlines and the entire trip was co-ordinated by the GBB committee and the band to ensure everything was in perfect place; instruments, PA system, monitor engineers, lighting techs and nine dry cleaned Big Vern blue suits!!!!!
Needless to say, the mainly expatriate crowd had never seen anything quite like Big Vern n the Shootahs on TOP form, with the band delivering song after song which had the entire dancefloor filled from first song till last. Its a simple philosphy that the band employs; party classics played well, with kicking horns, perfect backing vocals and a driving rhythm section. No backing tracks, no tricks, no sequencers, simply nine guys singing and playing completely live with some cool choreography to boot. Cool, soulful and funky. Just perfect for any party……………
