HAWICK Town Hall will host a huge dance night in October, featuring two of the UK’s leading vocalists in the genre.

Musicity will bring Kelly Llorenna, lead singer with N-Trance, and Rebecca Rudd of Ultrabeat to the town on Saturday, October 29.

Kelly Llorenna joined N-Trance in 1992 and she and the band scored their first hit three years later with Set You Free, which reached number two in the UK charts and sold more than 600,000 copies.

It was rereleased in 2001 and was again a top ten hit.

Kelly then embarked on a solo career but also teamed up with Flip and Fill in 2002 to record True Love Never Dies, which got to number seven in the charts.

In the same year she got to number six with Forever, again with N-Trance, before she stopped working with the dance group.

After getting to number 15 with a Donna Summers cover, Kelly began working with N-Trance again.

She currently is working with a new band, Freak Asylum.

Rebecca Rudd worked with the M&C Project and Pawn Shop before joining up with Ultrabeat on their 2006 hit Elysium (I Go Crazy).

She also featured on the single Sure Feels Good, released in August 2007.

Support for Kelly and Rebecca will come from up-and-coming DJs Ally Brown and Gary Edgar.

Ally is a regular in many clubs in Blackpool while Gary spins discs in Edinburgh venues such as The Lane.

A spokesman for Musicity Promoters, who are putting on the night, said: “It promises to be a great night with a high quality sound system with lasers projections.”

Tickets cost £15 and are on sale now from Beanscene in Hawick, Selkirk Deli, Browns in Kelso, Moondogs in Galashiels and www.borderevents.com
