Chart-topping band Big Brovaz will be pulling in the crowds when they play at the University of Lincoln’s Delph Bar in March.


The six-strong R’n’B/hip hop band – whose new single ‘OK’ was released yesterday - was booked to play at the Student Union bar last October just as their debut single Nu Flow was catapulting them up the charts and to national fame.


Showcased at the recent Top of The Pops Awards, the band – three girls Cherise, Dion and Nadia and three boys, Flawless, J-Rock and Skillz - have taken the charts and the UK by storm with their theatrical fusion of R’n’B and hip hop.  


Their gig at the university’s Delph Bar on Friday 14th March will undoubtedly be the smallest venue included in their forthcoming tour.


SU Events Co-ordinator Maria Lyon said: “We’ve already had some pretty big names playing on the campus since the launch of our regular live music nights at the Delph last year, but this is going to be something special.


“From the beginning we said our aim was to book breaking bands and to showcase some of the best new musical talent in the country, and this is the result. The gig was organised several months ago and we are very lucky to have secured Big Brovaz for the last appearance on their forthcoming university tour.


“Tickets are strictly limited and we are expecting them to sell fast.  They are being sold on a first-come-first-served basis for what is sure to be one of the most talked-about music events of the year in Lincoln.”


Tickets are £7 in advance, £8 at the door for non-SU and guests. They are available now from the Delph Bar in the university’s sports hall, or the Student Union office.   


Details of forthcoming live gigs and all activities taking place at the Delph Bar are available from the Student Union office on 01522 886142 or from the Delph Bar on 01522 886642.
