Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 17 th December 2023

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

The core members of this landmark group are Don-e, Junior Giscombe and Omar, who have been amongst the 'Torch Bearers' of authentic British soul music since the 80's. Individually, they have sold millions of records worldwide, recorded some of the most iconic British soul anthems and won many notable industry awards. They have performed, written for and recorded with many of the world's R&B's legends, such as Stevie Wonder and Phyliss Hyman through to Erykah Badu and Angie Stone in the neo-soul space. This fully collaborative and iconic project brings together seasoned artists, musicians and performers who continue to carry forward the torches they lit several decades ago. There is no ‘lead’ singer, when it’s their time to step to the mic, they do so. This is a true collaboration, that deserves its place as 'a seminal moment in British soul music history.’
