When everyone arrived to watch the second set of Vintage Trouble’s exclusive RLife LIVE performance at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel last night, fans, hotel guests and local patrons always knew they were in for another electrifying 30 minutes.
However, what no-one knew, not even the band themselves, was that Paloma Faith had secretly snuck in and taken a seat at the back.
Once spotted and after very little persuasion by lead singer Ty Taylor, the next thing the crowd knew was that Faith and Taylor were taking to their own make-shift stage, a high table in the centre of the hotel’s Booking Office Bar, for an extraordinary rendition of Etta James’ ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’.
Faith and Taylor had recently performed the same song together at Faith’s concert at The O2 Arena London last month but it was the unexpectedness and intimateness of last night’s duet that rendered the crowd open-mouthed.
Vintage Trouble hosted two exclusive performances in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel’s Booking Office Bar last night as part of Renaissance Hotels’ global entertainment platform, RLife LIVE. Having played with The Who at Wembley on Monday and supporting The Rolling Stones in Hyde Park this Saturday, it was with huge excitement that the hotel welcomed the band to the stage last night.
LA-band, Vintage Trouble, exploded onto the UK music scene in 2011, releasing their debut album,
Their performances in the Booking Office Bar last night showcased a selection of songs from their album, ‘The Bomb Shelter Sessions (Encore Edition)’, which was released on June 4th 2013, and they also performed their new single ‘Pelvis Pusher’, which was released on Monday.
