Sister Sledge have been performing together since the early 1970s, though it wasn't until 1979 breakthrough album ‘We Are Family' was released that the band started getting commercial and critical recognition. Double platinum success followed over their next several albums and the band had a huge UK number 1 in 1985 with ‘Frankie'. Other big hits include ‘Freak Out', ‘Chic', ‘He's The Greatest Dancer' and ‘Lost In Music.'
Gwen Dickey was the voice behind LA band Rose Royce and is renowned for her appearance on the soundtrack for movie "Car Wash". In 1998 Gwen Dickey teamed up with international rap artist Jay-Z for a brand new version of the Rose Royce hit "Wishing On A Star" which gave Gwen her first solo UK top 10 hit. Gwen Dickey will be performing classic tracks such as ‘Wishing On A Star', ‘Is It Love You're After', ‘Ain't Nobody', ‘Car Wash' and ‘Love Don't Live Here Anymore'
JAKI GRAHAM is a unique vocalist and one of the most appealing Soul entertainers to emerge from the UK, her track "Could it be im falling in love?" reached No.5 in the british charts in March '85. Jaki achieved a Guinness World record as the first black British female solo artist to have 6 consecutive Top 10/20 hits, unheard of by a black British female at that time. Particularly successful in Japan in the 90's, releasing 5 albums, her first album "Real Life" sold more than 800,000 copies in less than four weeks. Jaki Graham will be performing some of her classic singles including ‘Could It Be I'm Falling In Love', ‘Set Me Free', ‘Round And Round' and ‘I Want To Thank You' among others.
