About Lance Ellington

Lance is one of the UK’s most prominent male vocalists.  His regular appearances on the BBC’s globally successful Strictly Come Dancing have endeared him to millions of UK dance and music fans and his charismatic style and sultry tones have entertained more than 30 million people worldwide.

The son of legendary 1950’s bandleader Ray Ellington, Lance’s elegant vocal style has been in great demand from the world’s top recording artists, and he has worked with artists such as Sting, Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Freddie Mercury, Lionel Richie, George Michael, Paul Carrack, Take That and Robbie Williams.

Lance has also worked in concert alongside George Benson, Natalie Cole, James Brown, Gary Barlow, Susan Boyle and Anton du Beke.

Aside from being heard on numerous film and TV projects like X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Grease is the Word, Lance also appeared as his father in the movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, alongside Geoffrey Rush and Charlize Theron. This inspired him to record his first two albums, Lessons In Love and There Comes a Time.

About Ed Barker

In 2012, British saxophonist, Ed Barker, performed a sax solo for one of the world’s most iconic pop musicians of our time: the late George Michael. Ed played the sax solo on George Michael’s ’93 hit single, Cowboys And Angels to tens of thousands of fans around the UK as George introduced Ed personally to the crowd each night. It was this sax solo that put Ed on the map.

Based between LA and London, Ed plays saxophone all around the world. Ed and Lance met in 2013 when Ed was producing his debut album, Simple Truth, and the song they recorded together, When You Smile, rocketed to #1 in the US independent pop charts, as well as #1 on the Indie Adult Contemporary Chart.

Ed was never formally trained on the saxophone - he is self-taught - but learnt his craft in Britain’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) and National Youth Orchestra (NYO).

What the venues are saying...

A great “sell-out” evening at the Little Theatre.  We all loved their show and hope to welcome them back very soon.

They played the opening set at the Canary Wharf Jazz Festival 2014 to a sell-out crowd and received a standing ovation - a delight to work with, great performers and we would welcome them back in future years.

Pleasure to work with.  They certainly put on a good show with excellent musicians around them.  Oh and they sell out our club every time!
