The Real Thing

The Real Thing appearing at this event

The UK's own disco pioneers The Real Thing still whip up the crowds from the minute they hit the stage. Following the sad passing of Eddy Amoo, his brother Chris and Dave Smith have decided to continue as a duo backed by The Real Thing band. Return to the glory days of dance music with the real music legends in a soulsational evening of non-stop, live dancefloor anthems including You to Me Are Everything, Can't Get By Without You and Can You Feel the Force. Backed by their critically acclaimed band, one of The Real Thing's original frontmen, Chris Amoo plus Dave Smith, revive the sensational 70s and 80s, performing all of the UK's most successful soul group's formidable repertoire. Rainin' Through the Sunshine, So Much Love to Give and Love's Such a Wonderful Thing give way to the classic Children of the Ghetto famously covered by Philip Bailey of Earth Wind and Fire. Also featuring a specially composed tribute to the biggest dance hits of their era, including Ladies Night, Ain't No Stopping us Now and Celebration, prepare to use up and wear out the dancefloor one last time! " ... these guys are pure class, and really hold up their songs vocally, even after all these years" - Clair Woodward, Sunday Express

Jazzie B

Jazzie B appearing at this event

DJ, music producer, entrepreneur and a founding member of Soul II Soul. Although Jazzie B and Soul II Soul will always be connected, both spiritually and substantially, that has never been all Jazzie has been about. For years he has built a parallel career away from the collective, one that allows him to advance his own ideas and character. Among his more eclectic achievements as Jazzie B, he has been a regular on London radio since Kiss FM was a pirate, and also does a variety of voice-overs for radio and television. He has had a spell running Motown in the UK, designed a sneaker for the Lacoste Legends range and presented James Brown with the Diesel U Music Lifetime Achievement award – an honour the late Mr Brown would accept in person on the one condition that it was Jazzie who presented it to him!

Jimmy James and The Vagabonds

Jimmy James and The Vagabonds appearing at this event

During the mid to late '60s, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds were one of the most popular soul acts on the live circuit, only rivalled by labelmates Geno Washington & His Ram Jam Band. Jimmy’s recording of Neil Diamond's ‘Red, Red Wine’ in 1969, taken from the Vagabonds’ second album ‘Open up your Soul’, gave them their first commercial hit record. He continues to play to full houses on the cabaret circuit across England and has appeared with artistes such as The Drifters, The Four Tops and the late Edwin Starr.
