Charity & Community Work...

26 June 2013

Ultra 90s headlined Party in the Park - Our home towns annual carnival party - great night!!! Also saw the likes of JJ Youngstar, Soul Patrol and Reinst80'd on stage. An awesome display of local talent entertaining the local community going through 4 decades right from the 60s to the 90s with the unique sounds of JJ Youngstar adding something a bit different into the mix.

This weekend sees Ultra 90s joining another fab line up for Knipfest - another local event raising money for Cancer Research UK and St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice

Ultra 90s will be heavily involved in raising money over the next 12months for Grantham Carnival 2014 which looks set to be the biggest and best we've ever seen!! So watch this space and Facebook for ideas, competitions, events and how you too can get involved.

Til next time :)

2013 So Far...

23 May 2013

Hi everyone...

Apologies for it being so long, busy busy here at Ultra 90s HQ - so what's been happening...

Jan/Feb saw a fairly quiet start to the year but then things just got crazy!! We were approached by a London based Company to put together 2 groups of performers for Viking Lines travelling daily between Finalnd and Sweden doing 90s Shows. We utilised all of Ultra 90s material and added some pop stuff including Ace of Base, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears... and our 10 people are still onboard until mid-June getting Ultra 90s out to Europe!!

Katie Price found us on Scott Jordan Entertainments Website and requested we play for her and Kieran at their 2nd Wedding Reception back in the UK end of March - that was pretty awesome!! A beautiful couple!! Great night!! Had the whole crowd up dancing and singing along from start to finish.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
