Forum pass on: Marlena Shaw in Manchester this March
Just got tickets to see this lady.. The Band on the wall is a fantastic live music venue thats been closed for a good while and now is back after a massive facelift... Details below for any others who could want to see her live...
Marlena Shaw.. Live at Band on the wall.. Swan St Manchester..
Sat 20th March 2010 – Doors open: 8pm..
One of the great singers from the 60's glory days of jazz, R&B, gospel and soul performs live at Band on the Wall!
Considered a national treasure in the USA, Marlena Shaw's 40-year career reads like a who's who's of music having fronted or played with, amongst others, Count Basie, Ray Brown, Sammy Davis Jnr, Benny Carter, Joe Williams and Frank Foster. She produced or sung on some of the era's best know hits and was also the first woman vocalist to be signed to Blue Note. With a later, highly successful foray into disco with the massive hit Touch Me In The Morning, her legacy continues as new-found fans with artists in the rap, dance and hip hop genres such as DJ Shadow, Diplo, Faze Action and St Germain sampling her work.
Expect a night featuring some of her greatest tunes such as California Soul, Mercy Mercy Mercy, Woman Of The Ghetto, Liberation Conversation, Touch Me In The Morning and many more. For a magical evening in the company of a music legend advance booking is strongly recommended.
This concert will begin at 8.30pm.
