That was a pure pleasure to witness such an incredible artist, what a voice, fab backing singers, unbelievable backing band ( including Mick Talbot) off the Style Council on key boards, they got every single note spot on. Big thanks to the guys who put this on, know how much hard work goes into arranging a gig. The tunes were top notch all night.

Debbie Taylor will go down in history after that performance as one of the greatest live performers to grace these shores.

One word for the whole night - unforgettable !

Flanny we have loads of pictures as we were near the front. I will send them through to your Debbie on Facebook or drop me a message with your mobile as I will be getting some printed.

Thank You          Thank You        Thank You      Thank You!



I would like to thank everybody who attended on Saturday 9th November. People queuing at the door at 8:15 when we planned to open at 9:00. People on the floor by 9:30. The start of something very special was about to happen. Who were all the people piling through the door? — many of the most knowledgeable, long standing fans on the UK soul scene from  all four corners of the country.


What was the occasion? — Debbie Taylor’s debut performance in the UK.


What can I say about the night that hasn’t already been said? -  absolutely fantastic from start to finish.


When Debbie joined the band on stage for rehearsals and the band hit the intro to “Don’t Nobody Mess With My Baby” we all held our breath; for any live act promoter this is a crucial moment. We all melted - hey, has someone put the 45 on the decks? no, this was live, incredible! Debbie sailed through all 12 songs and left us all speechless. I looked at Mike and the others in disbelief; Mike had tears in his eyes and said ‘I think we’ve cracked it’.


Debbie did make a few fine adjustments to the arrangements and changed a key or two, which were quickly adopted by the band. The whole rehearsal was sheer perfection. Can it get any better on the night? — Well from what you all say on this thread, yes it did, and more.


Thank you time:


To Debbie Taylor: for being such a fabulous lady to deal with during the build up to the show and for the sensational performance she delivered on the night, not forgetting the time she spent with you all signing everything you put in front of her, until the early hours after the show.


To the band: they are equally as important to a show as the artist. I would like to thank my friend Ernie McKone for assembling a group of musicians second to none. A special thank you to our keyboards man Mike Talbot for agreeing to be part of our special night. Background vocalists — Wow!! Sam & Janessa were just fantastic, their support for Debbie was just great but their little solo parts, encouraged by Debbie, were just sublime.

To the sound guys: A fabulous artist, and band, but without a professional sound team and PA equipment, which is the third essential part of a show, we would have been in trouble.  I would like to thank John & Chris (JSS Audio) for their constant attention to the sound quality throughout the show, which made a great show fantastic.


To the DJs: What can I say, I was one of them! Along with Arthur Fenn, Mike Charlton & Mouse - a great mix of tunes, something for everybody’s taste, just great soul music. Thank you for your support.


To the team: Thanks to Mike and Jenny for their support from the start, when I first suggested the project at Soul Essence, back in April this year. To Val, the boss, for putting up with my tantrums and skilfully dealing with all financial aspects and ticketing. To Mouse for ticket sales, promotion and helping prepare the venue.


To the venue staff: Thanks for support and willingness to provide every request I threw at you; Website use, catering, venue facilities, etc, etc.

Special thanks to Rob Lawrence and Hazel (Caister Weekenders) for security for Debbie and general help on the door.


To you the fans: A show like this would be pointless without you. Debbie went home after an experience she will never forget. She told you on the night, from the stage, how she felt, and continued until we put her safely on the plane.


What’s next at the Wilton’s Soulful Sessions: I haven’t a clue right now. I think it would be impossible to top this, maybe we will have Debbie back again — What do you think? Watch this space.


Thank you


Dave (Boxy)

Just like to echo everything said so far, what a fantastic night, Debbie Taylor and the whole band and backing singers were awesome, incredible to put on a show like that after 1 rehearsal session earlier that day and that Debbie/Maydie no longer sings the songs she performed, what a powerful vocal, superb.......


A massive thanks to Dave,Val, Mike & Jenny and any one else involved in making this night possible.


Look forward to the next one and if its half as good it will be special.

Here are my photo's from Saturday, apologies for the quality on some, but my camera was on it's last legs (especially after THAT performance!!)    The Debbie Taylor pictures do get better towards the end as I was kindly pushed to the front during the second half of the concert 


Enjoy x
