Fabulous news that the live act will be Pat Lewis. Another great weekender in store at Whitby and also an opportunity for all those who have missed out on the sold out July Weekender.

Yes I think so Dave, and I'm that confused with so many Weekenders on in September/October my heads spinning, it seems that I was right first time, this clashes with Skeggy Grand Central, so I can only go to one and Skeggy Hotel pre-booked for twice a year in advance, Buggar. :facepalm:  :dash2:

Refresher blurb on our Live artist
Patsy Lewis was born October 23, 1947 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania and moved to Detroit, Michigan in 1951. In the early 60s, Pat, her sister Dianne, and two friends (Betty and Jackie Winston) formed the group, The Adorables, who recorded a record and began singing backing vocals for Golden World Records. Pat herself debuted as a solo artist in 1966 with Can't Shake It Loose while also beginning to do outside backing vocals sessions. She met Motown Records' in-house backing group The Andantes, and one day when one of the girls couldn't make the session for Stevie Wonder's Up-Tight, Pat stepped in and did it as well as several other Motown sessions. She signed to Solid Hit Bound Records and released a string of singles, including "Look At What I Almost Missed", "Warning", "No One to Love", "No Baby No", and "The Loser". From the late 60s on, she became a permanent backing singer for Aretha Franklin, Isaac Hayes and later on George Clinton too. She wrote several songs for Isaac Hayes.
Later Years[edit]
In 1989, Pat as well as The Andantes were among the invited artists to join UK producer Ian Levine's mega-project Motorcity Records, a label formed to record new material on former Motown artists. Pat became the main backing vocals co-ordinator for the label and did several hundred arrangements while she recorded more than 50 tracks with herself and as a lead singer for the re-formed Andantes. Her single Separation (1991) (co-written by Levine and Billy Griffin) was Single of the Week when reviewed in British soul magazine Blues & Soul. After the label's demise in 1992, Pat continued to work with Ian Levine on a regular basis. In 1997, she recorded 50 cover versions of selected Motown and Northern Soul classics although only a handful of tracks have been released on various artists compilations. In 1999, she recorded 76 gospel tracks with Levine for K-Tel. As for the present, Pat occasionally tours with Martha Reeves's original backing group The Vandellas

Once again proves Whitby, the Heritage Coast and Moors can't be beaten for location and the Pavilion is a top notch venue . 700 plus made this their event of choice which is remarkable bearing in mind the other weekenders , allniters and a multitude of other soul/northern/motown events . Very enjoyable and once again a credit to the promoters, Kev and Snowy and their helpers plus of course the djs. Popped into The Pier for the very popular and well supported extra afternoon session. Already looking forward to next year , potentially a sell out with the announcement of the live act.
