The Grand Prix Ball has confirmed its entertainment package at the Hurlingham Club as the country gears up for what is set to be a thrilling 2010 British Grand Prix
at Silverstone – with something for everyone in the evening's packed, star-studded line-up, including sets from the Sugababes, Seb Fontaine, Eddie Jordan and The Robbers, Darius Campbell and Ben Montague.
Headlining the evening is Britain's top girl group, the Sugababes, with the trio of Heidi Range, Jade Ewen and Amelle Berrabah set to perform some of the greatest hits from the band's twelve-year repertoire. The Sugababes have been named the most successful female act of the 21st century by the Guinness Book of World Records, as they boast six UK number one singles and 18 top ten hits to their name.
For the more musical of fans, Darius Campbell, the winner of ITV's 'Popstar to Operastar', will be dropping in to perform a variety of swing songs with his sultry Scottish baritone. Darius recently performed in the world-famous opera Carmen at the O2 Arena with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, playing the illustrious role of Escamillo. The last few years have seen him score hit singles and platinum albums, tour the world with Shakira and Alanis Morissette and earn several lead roles in the West End and on TV.
To keep the dance floor kicking until the small hours, there will be a set by internationally-celebrated DJ Seb Fontaine, courtesy of F1 Rocks, which will be making its much-awaited comeback later this year. Seb, who has been at the top of the house and dance music scene for two decades, has enjoyed a huge career, including a famous residency at top UK club Cream and his own show on BBC Radio 1.
F1 Rocks brings together the world's most glamorous sport with the biggest music stars, to create the world's most exciting broadcast-led entertainment platform. An unprecedented fusing of music megastars and F1 lifestyle, F1 Rocks provides a unique and groundbreaking global entertainment and marketing platform.
From the established to the up-and-coming, the Grand Prix Ball will see a performance by celebrated singer/songwriter Ben Montague. Ben's single 'Haunted' recently took the coveted record-of-the-week slot on BBC Radio 2, and he is fresh from a headline performance at the Isle of Wight Festival. Ben will play tracks from his debut album 'Overcome'.
As previously confirmed, BBC F1 pundit and former team owner Eddie Jordan will also be taking to the stage with his acclaimed pop/rock covers band, The Robbers.
