CLASSIC Ibiza wowed crowds at an ‘absolutely amazing night’ in Tatton Park.

Thousands greeted the 32-piece Urban Soul Orchestra for a journey of Balearic-infused house music on Saturday.

Musicians performed 16 new orchestrations in a set of more than 40 dance classics.

One concert goer said: “Absolutely amazing night, we loved every minute from start to finish.”

The concert began with a chill-out DJ set, as the crowd settled into the show’s family-friendly atmosphere over their picnics.

Former Pacha Ibiza resident, DJ Jose Luis then took control of the decks for his Afro/Latin House Set, which included a live jamming session with members of USO.
