THE REAL THING
31st August 2019
The Real Thing - Britain’s top Soul & R ‘n’ B group had three million selling hit singles in the 70s “You To Me Are Everything” “Can’t Get By Without You” and “Feel The Force”. In the 80s they were all remixed and became huge hits again, thanks to the band’s massive following.
Original vocalists, Chris Amoo and Dave Smith and their fantastic 5 piece band will perform these hits alongside many more of their great songs such as “You’ll Never Know What You’re Missing” “Whenever You Want My Love” and ‘Love's Such a Wonderful Thing’ which, in 2005, was sampled by Daft Punk and re-titled ‘So Much Love to Give’ and became a top 10 hit for The Freeloaders and which featured The Real Thing resulting in the band charting across three decades!
The band continue to tour up and down the country selling out venues and regularly performing at 70’s & 80’s festivals alongside such artists as Rick Astley, Boy George, Belinda Carlisle, Kool and the Gang and Chic.
Commenting on The Real Thing’s success, singer Chris Amoo said, ‘There’s always going to be a sense of nostalgia about our music. It’s the sound track to so many people’s lives and that will never die.’
