The Royal Organ -
Sunday 06th July, 12PM
Since being unable to accept knighthoods back in 2008 due to a gig commitment at The Murderer’s Arms in London’s Shepherds Bush on the same day, The Royal Organ Duo have earned their non-existent titles entertaining courtiers all over the United Kingdom and United States of America, in venues ranging from prestigious hangouts like the Groucho and Soho House, to numerous dodgy discotheques, retirement homes and good old fashioned back street boozers.
Originally formed back in 2001, the Duo starting worked for Her Royal Highness The Queen of England, providing the music and general vibe at Royal functions within Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Sandringham, and sailed the high seas as the house band on the QE2. This allowed them to establish a large repertoire of funk based psychedelic covers and build up a celebrity packed fan-base. At one point they became so well known in Upper Class circles that Her Majesty the Queen approached them with an offer of appearing on the front of the new twenty pound note (£20 Sterling)- a true honour but another opportunity that the duo missed out on as they were away backing a well-known soul legend in America.
Being able to entertain people from all walks of life the duo are now performing for the common people as their decade on higher ground came to an end. They have been seen reveling at top public events such as Camp Bestival, House of Vans, Edinburgh Festival, Clapham Grand as well as impressing corporate types at Not on the High Street and House of Vans.
