"PURPLELUV" is a 5 piece world class act remembering the music, life and legacy of our dearly beloved.... the 1 and only.... Prince Rogers Nelson!
Brought together by their love of the legend and His music, this act delivers a powerful and energetic show filled with all the hits and favourites!

Our idea of honouring the music of Prince was born quite a few years ago and was put to rest many times over the years. But after visiting Paisley Park, the Capri Theater and First Avenue Minneapolis where the sound of Minneapolis Funk was made, and after meeting many of the musicians who performed with Prince, we were encouraged to keep the music going for the fans who love Him as well as future generations to get to love Him.

4 those who admire the songs and energy that is ‘PRINCE’.... Join PURPLELUV as we embark on something completely original in homage to one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived. No sequencers.... no overdubs.... A remarkably raw, in your face, live 5 piece show playing the hits and obscurities that truly define a legend, a movement, a culture that was.... Prince!

Songs from the earlier albums 'Wanna be your lover' through to the legendary Purple Rain, 1999, Let’s go Crazy and hits from The Purple Family; The Bird, Glamorous Life, I Feel 4 U & Nothing Compares 2 U; thru to one of his last projects 3rd Eye Girl!

“Listen-Learn-Repeat” we were told "It is up to us to continue his legacy. If you love Prince, you are part of that legacy." The Paisley Park Family.

So here we are excited to bring you into our Purple world and share with you the PURPLELUV and passion we have for our Legend and His music!!

Come and join us, get up and sing, dance and chant with us – Let’s go Crazy.... "PURPLELUV" !!
