Responsible for some of Hospital’s biggest anthems, such as ‘Billion Dollar Gravy’ and ‘Different Drum,’ London Elektricity has cultivated a first class reputation as both a producer and DJ and continues to push the genre he fell in love with in the mid 1990s.

Six nights, six musicians and a full choir to celebrate three years of love and live music. For their anniversary, Shanghai's house of funk and soul takes it back to where it all started: Gospel music. Gospel is where funk, soul, R&B and house all grew from. Gospel is how we all got here. Gospel is what you will experience when SHAKE's full band and guest choir interpret the music of Kirk Franklin, Deitrick Haddon and many more to bring you raw power and waves of sound that Shanghai has never felt before. Go devil go! Dinner from 6pm; music from 10pm. Dress Code: Fix up, look sharp. RSVP and table booking highly recommended.
