About DJ Rusty Egan with Guest Steve Norman
Lytham Festival Official Aftershow Party with DJ Rusty Egan and Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet
DJ Rusty Egan returns to Lowther Pavilion with The Blitz Club and special guest Steve Norman of Spandau Ballet.
The Blitz Club will follow Saturday night’s Madness gig in the Main Proms Arena.
Steve Norman, founding member of Spandau Ballet and a musician who helped shape the 80s, is special guest on the night and will perform live saxophone and percussion to accompany Rusty’s set of dance, soul, 80’s, 90’s Funk and House music.
Rusty Egan is one of the most influential DJ’s of modern times and is often cited as the pioneer of electronic dance music in the UK.
A passionate musician who made his name in the late 1970’s as a drummer for the British new-wave band The Rich Kids with Glen Matlock formerly of the Sex Pistols and Midge Ure on lead guitar and vocals. Rusty enjoyed considerable success with Midge in Visage, fronted by Steve Strange, including the worldwide hit Fade to Grey.
Rusty came to prominence as a DJ at the Blitz Club (1979-1980), where he introduced German Electronica to the British scene, and as a musical innovator he sought fresh influences in Paris, Berlin, Düsseldorf and New York.
It was also at the Blitz Club in 1979 that Rusty met Steve Norman when Spandau Ballet were the House Band. This was the place that Steve Strange, Midge Ure, Boy George, Sade, George Michael, David Bowie and other personalities of the New Romantic scene partied.
Multi-talented Steve is a guitarist, saxophonist, percussionist, songwriter, vocals and founding member of Spandau Ballet, and went on to enjoy world-wide success having 23 hit singles and more than 25 million record sales.
In the early 90’s Steve Norman moved to Ibiza and discovered his love for club and dance music. Since then Steve has performed with DJ’s at selected events and parties around the world and is currently working on a new solo album and upcoming tour.
Steve added: “I am really excited to be performing at Lytham Festival on Saturday 5 August as I’ve always had a fantastic time in Lytham and love the place. It’s a great line up for the week and I will be coming up for a few days to enjoy the festival as a few of my good mates are on the bill. Roll on Lytham Festival. Hope to see you there.”
The Aftershow Parties will be held from 10.30pm – 1am.
