Singing Sensation comes to the Riverside Theatre
NI Live events presents Dana Masters live, with support from Jasmine Gardiner, Melody May, Toni Whitten, Claire Hill and Hollie Rose on 17th November, Riverside Theatre, Coleraine.
Originally from the US, internationally renowned jazz and soul vocalist, Dana Masters, has made Ireland her home and has become an extremely popular artist in local jazz scene. NI Live Events are delighted to showcase the talents of a performer who is at the top of her game in the music industry.
In 2014, 11,000 people at ‘Proms in the Park’ were all talking about Dana and her performance that night. Dana Masters is now one of Northern Ireland’s top vocalists.
Recently, more than 350 music fans gave Dana Masters and her band a standing ovation at the lyric theatre in Belfast and only last week Dana sang alongside Van Morrison at his 70th birthday concert on Cypress Avenue.
“Every once in a while you have the opportunity to see a musician who projects themselves with such tremendous ease and honesty. It can only be attributed to sheer talent, years of hard work and a deep understanding of the material being performed.”(www.giggingni.com)
Supporting Dana on the night will be some of the country’s brightest up-and-coming female Solo singers. With combined views online of well over 1 million, these singers are sure to get the audience buzzing before Dana takes the stage.
The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio’s Ralph Mclean and is sponsored by LSFX, one of Northern Ireland’s finest audiovisual companies.
NI Live Events always try to ensure that a Northern Irish charity benefits from their shows. Since 2011 we have raised in excess of £70,000. We are proud to be associated with the ‘Children’s Heartbeat Trust’ at our show on the 17th of November.

What a weekend…..
We have just returned (and recovered!) from our second Summer Blast weekend with yet another fantastic group of teens! This year’s Summer Blast took place at Shannaghmore Outdoor Education Centre in Newcastle sandwiched between the backdrop of the gorgeous Mourne Mountains and the Irish Sea – Thank goodness we had the weather on our side!
We kicked off the weekend with the fantastically entertaining Joe at The Gathering Drum who kept us all on our toes and on the beat with his African drumming workshop!
After lunch we all suited up and headed off to Castlewellan with our canoes in tow. We all helped to prepare the boats for some Canadian canoeing and took off in small groups to explore the lough…..and steal Dr McCrossan’s boat! On our way back to dry land our competitive nature kicked in which resulted in a 3-way splash off between each of the boats….fortunately we were all far too wet to work out who won!
Once we all had a much needed shower and some chill out time in the games room it was time for Nightline, we all wore blindfolds and had to put our trust in our teammates under the guidance of our Instructors Leo and George who turned out to be not so trustworthy after all!!
We chilled out on Saturday night with a DVD and lots of well earned munchies as we had an early start the next morning for our high and low rope challenges….The high ropes looked ok from the security of flat ground but once we took in the view at the top of the course the challenge seemed to become a lot bigger! Although the low ropes were a lot closer to the ground they were every bit as challenging…particularly when the alternative to balancing on the ropes was to plunge into a stinky, muck filled swamp…. let’s just say not everyone finished the low rope challenge as clean as they started!!
After a weekend full of fun, laughs, overcoming fears, meeting new friends, trying new activities and a few hundred whoop whoops we have to thank everyone that made this Summer Blast a success; HUGE THANK YOU to Catherine, Jan and Claire our Specialist Nurses and Dr Chris Lockhart and Dr Brian McCrossan for your support over the weekend and most importantly to our fantastic group of teens for coming along and giving your all this weekend….we certainly had a blast and we hope you did too!!
