The Real Thing
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
