Attention beautiful people
Like many a soul star before her Barbara Tucker developed her love of singing through the church. From there she secured many a production off-Broadway and worked as a choreographer and dancer for the likes of Deee-Lite and C&C Music Factory. But it’s through the club scene where she really found fame. She has provided vocals for some of the giants of the scene including David Guetta and Blaze as well as the legendary Masters At Work team of Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzalez. Her dance smashes include ‘Beautiful People’, ‘Stay Together’ and ‘Stop Playing With My Mind’, which continue to set dancefloors ablaze to this day. She’s the only recording artist to have a yearly residency in Ibiza so it’s a real feather in the cap of the Barca Art Bar to bring her our way. Expect a night of the deepest and most soulful house.
