It was wet , Cloudy with torrential rain storms , puddles and ducks , loud music , Oh and still Brilliant !

Ronnie and Maxine were superb, really enjoying the crowd.

The allnighters still had large numbers attending till the end , great to see.

Always good catching up were other soul people.

 

Thanks to Ady and the team, see you all at the 25th Clegg Fest !!

. . . . . . .  RONNIE CANADA .... short bio .........

Ronnie Canada has enjoyed a long & varied life in the music biz over the last 40 years. Born in Cleveland, Ronnie made his start working with the likes of S.O.U.L. And Truth. From there, he became a member of Sly, Slick & Wicked in 1979. The group had landed a record deal with Carl Maduri's Sweet City and were slated to record a Dunn Pearson song “All I Want Is You”. Ronnie was selected as the lead singer on the song and so spent some weeks learning & rehearsing the song. However, on the day the group went into the studio, group leader John Wilson decided he would take lead vocal duties and so the track was recorded that way. The cuts were licensed by Epic in the US and released to little reaction. However, here in the UK, Modern Soul fans were soon searching out copies of the 45 and it soon took on anthem status.

Next up, Ronnie moved on, joining the Blue Notes who needed new members after splitting from Harold Melvin. Group members Larry Brown & John Atkins went all the way back to the mid 60's (the group's “Get Out” period). The group had cut good tracks for Uni & Glades records (Florida: mid to late 70's) and were a popular live attraction when Ronnie joined their number. However, Harold Melvin wasn't happy that two sets of Blue Notes were out there and so he took legal action against the Florida based outfit. Wanting to move on, the guys changed their name to Caviar and with Ronnie on lead vocals they cut “Never Stop Lovin' You” for Survivor (1982). They cut more tracks at that time but these didn't escape until an album was put out by Boogie Time Records (France: 2009).

Next, Ronnie joined Omari and they had the popular “After Loving You” out on Bound Sound Records (1983). After Omari split, Ronnie went solo and cut "I Don't Believe It" which escaped on AJ's Records (1987). Copies of this 12” sold well in the UK and that once again raised Ronnie's profile. Needing steady work, Ronnie went back into the group environment and he moved over to Europe where he started singing with the Platters and American Drifters. These outfits were a top live draw across Europe but Ronnie wanted to get back into the recording side of things. So, he started to collaborate with people in the house & garage worlds, cutting for Tomohawk (1993/94) and Shaboom (2004). This work also resulted in him being used by various similar acts, Ronnie adding his vocals to tracks by the likes of Fabio Tosti, Audioplayerz and Darockwildas. So that brings us up to date. Ronnie, now resides in Watford and keeps up his work in the music world.

The live act rehearsal took place today. Ronnie Canada tells me that it went well. The band were up to the mark as always and Maxine did her bit as fine as ever. Ronnie & Maxine will be doing a duet (ala Chuck & Maxine) on "Hold On, I'm Coming", which should go down well on Saturday night. 

Ronnie's own PA will be in the MS Room Sunday afternoon @ 4pm.

The lads will be arriving tomorrow (Charlie, Paul, Nige, etc) but I'm a late starter this year (not gettin' to Clegvegas till Saturday pm). Looking forward to proceedings as much as always. Weather not tipped to be great & then there's the footie (& F1) to fit in ... it's going to be a busy one again.
