Rizzle Kicks Get The Roundhouse Roaring!
REVIEW: Brighton Boys set temperatures soaring at this year's iTunes Festival...

On September 5, Rizzle Kicks came roaring into the Roundhouse, Camden for the fifth night of this year's iTunes Festival. The duo were lively and vocal as always, belting out their top tracks as well as new material from their album Roaring 20’s.
Feeling: It may have been a Thursday night, but that didn’t hold the crowds back. Any qualms about early Friday starts were soon forgotten. That ‘almost the weekend’ feeling was rife, as the crowd danced away to the young duo.
The Look: The Roundhouse offers a unique setting with its curved walls and pillars - which can prove troublesome in the seated section. There wasn't a controversial 'Free Tulisa' T-Shirt in sight compared to their stint at this year's Wireless Festival, with Jordan instead donning demin shorts and a checkered shirt. Harley opted for a colourful vest and black jeans.
As well as the Rizzles, there was also seven piece band with no other than Jordan’s dad - complete with his own pair of Nikeys - on guitar. Also joining the set were two jazz musicians, a drummer, a DJ, keyboard player and a second guitarist. Hearing Jordan call out to his father was endearing and added a special touch to the gig.
Tunes: The dynamic duo opened their set with new tracks from the Roaring 20’s album from When I Was A Youngster to Skip To The Good Bit and new single, Lost Generation. To no surprise they kept the best until last. They sang Mama Do The Hump as their final track and exited the stage. But the lively young crowd were going nowhere and chanted to the Brighton boys. They emerged in seconds and gave a triumphant encore playing Put Your Two's Up and rounding things off with Down With The Trumpets.
Special Guests: Support act Eliza Doolittle joined the lads on stage for a rendition of The Reason I Live, wearing bright-yellow hot pants - which went down a storm with the Roundhouse crowd.
Banter: It’s no secret that the Rizzle Kicks are controversial and outspoken, with the pair keeping their audience entertained between tracks. They also made many cheeky comments about the crowd and of course, to each other.
Celeb Spots: We were so transfixed on the nimble actions of Jordan and Harvey that we didn’t spot any familiar faces among the crowd.
Sweat Factor: Being the hottest day in September - temperatures were expected to soar as the crowd waited in anticipation for the Rizzles. Although stuck to the seats, it didn’t stop the crowd getting to their feet and diminishing any insecurities about sweat patches to dance along to the tunes.
Summary: Those Rizzle Kicks boys never fail to entertain and provide an enjoyable show. From Jordan’s twinkle toe movements and cheeky raps to Harvey’s impeccable vocals, their stint on stage was a roaring success!
