For Utah Saints will headline a night that will include DJ slots from local stalwarts Steve Cass and Justin Wilson (No Strings Attached), alongside Hawick’s Dave Walker who was with the band QFX, Selkirk’s Gary Dixon aka The General, who was behind the infamous Headrush parties back in the day.

Utah Saints closed the main stage at this year’s Wickerman Festival in Dumfries and Galloway, playing a mind blowing DJ set.

The world-renowned duo –Tim Utah and Jez Willis – have been making music, DJ-ing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of House music.

They have released nine Top 40 UK hits, four of which hit the Top 10, and they have sold more than two million records worldwide, sampled a huge range of artists, from Annie Lennox to Slayer, supported U2 on a UK and European tour, set up and promoted award-winning and legendary clubnights The Gallery and SugarBeatClub and have recorded and presented shows for Radio 1, XFM, Galaxy, Kiss and Ministry of Sound.

Utah Saints are still very much at the top of their game hosting their SugarBeatClub brand at various clubs and curating festival stages.

When the pioneering DJs aren’t playing at clubs and festivals in various parts of the world, they can be found in the studio working on their new material and also remixing other artists.

Tickets for the Hawick event, which takes place on Saturday, October 18, from 7.30pm, are priced £15, and are on sale now at www.borderevents.com, as well as from local shops – Spences Music and Kudos Hair in Hawick, Selkirk Deli, Browns Newsagents in Kelso, Taylors Newsagents in Jedburgh, and Guess What? in Galashiels.

This week Borders DJ Steve Cass told The Southern: “We are advising people to buy tickets in advance as there is a huge demand already.”
