TREVOR Nelson and his Soul Nation show comes to Coventry’s Rialto Plaza for a night of Classic 80s, 90s and 00s Soul & RNB anthems all night long.

Get ready to boogie your heart out at the UK’s iconic soulful party.

Expect to hear him spinning classics from Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston, Outkast, Destiny’s Child, Donnell Jones, TLC, Soul II Soul, Dru Hill and more.

Having imported music records at a young age, Trevor’s passion saw him working for Cooltempo and the legendary EMI records in the 80s and landing a spot at Kiss FM, at that time London’s elusive pirate radio station.

In 1996, he secured his first role on BBC Radio 1, presenting the UK’s first national RNB show The Rhythm Nation.

Trevor went on to achieve immense success hosting weekly radio shows on BBC 1Xtra and now BBC Radio 2 and always his finger on the pulse of the latest RNB and soul tracks.

In 2018 Trevor released his Slow Jams compilation album, including hits from Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Usher.

He continues to DJ around the UK and Europe and is now in his tenth summer residency in Global Room nightclub in Pacha, Ibiza. 2022 sees him tour the UK returning to Coventry on April 1.
