Shalamar: Friends 40th Anniversary

Sunday 25 June

Local hero Jaki Graham has now been added as special guest!


Let’s go back to the Autumn of 1982 The Hottest concert was not for any of the New Romantic bands currently appearing in the charts but for SHALAMAR , the soul disco band put together by Solar Records head man Dick Griffey who had earlier in the year released the ‘Friends’ album in the UK.

The ‘Friends’ album delivered 4 Top 10 hit singles – Night to Remember, There It is, Friends and I can make you feel good – but more importantly a dance craze – never seen before in the UK by group member Jeffrey Daniel – exploding after a single solo performance on Top of The Pops – The Moon walk had taken the nation by storm

The Friends 40th Anniversary tour commences in June 2023 and for the very very first time the band will perform THE ENTIRE album live in concert –all 10 tracks from the album in full. As Howard Hewett lead singer said ‘throughout the years we’ve played the 4 hit singles plus varying other tracks from the album but never the whole 10 tracks, for a lot of people ( over a million copies were sold in the uk alone) Friends was their ‘go to’ album of the early 80’s.
