Never miss another 'Brand New Heavies' show
Dedham Does Dance : Brand New Heavies + Natalie Williams + Allstars
This evening aims to raise £10,000 for two cancer charities - Cancer Research UK and Brain Tumour Charity with The Kevin Ackling Trust.
Why not go along for a night of great music while helping raise money.
It was old school friends Jan, Andrew and Simon pursuing their near-obsessive love of soul music and '70s funk that inspired them to form The Brand New Heavies.
Early hits Never Stop and Dream Come True were original chunks of organic funk that earned the band a reputation as a formidable live act and their reinterpretations of popular standards, such as Midnight At The Oasis, Carole King's You've Got A Friend and the Stevie Wonder classic I Don't Know Why (I Love You), brought major global chart success.
Having made their mark originally with the immensely talented vocalist N’Dea Davenport, the core trio of Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy were later fronted by Siedah Garrett and Carleen Anderson.
