Take That star Howard Donald is taking time out from his Take That stadium rehearsals to return to his second love of DJing as he hits £5million hyper-club Gatecrasher in Birmingham for an exclusive DJ set on the 29th of January.
Howard follows in the footsteps of top DJs including Mark Ronson, Will.I.Am, David Guetta, Plan B, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5 and Calvin Harris who have all played in the club.
This is the second time Howard has played at the 3,000 capacity club. On the last occasion his unique blend of deep vocal house and electro set the Gatecrasher dance-floors alight and crowds were left speechless with his undeniable talent and dedication to music. Refusing to go down the route of party DJ Howard has strived to play a more refined style of music, taking influences from the Chicago luminaries and the French 'Naked' house sound.
This is Howard's first DJ set in 2011 before he tours with Take That in Summer and an opportunity for his fans to get up close and personal with the DJ in a more intimate environment.
Howard believes that performing to millions of fans with Take That compares with seeing the dance-floor go off whilst DJing in a packed club. Howard commented; "It’s the same but very different if that makes sense … I love DJing because its more intimate and I can get up close with people and what happens on the dance floor is purely down to the music I play which is completely different to a stadium show because people know what they are getting as that’s what they paid for.”
Howard's set is part of Gatecrasher's Superstar Boudoir season and he follows DJing legends including Eric Morillo, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten and Paul Van Dyk.
