This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Just seen this and 'What's Going On' guide. Fantastic to see Chairman of the Board as a 'live' act at this weekender and now, additionally, Tommy Hunt.

From the very roots of their early career with songs such as The Wrong Girl, It Will Stand, Our Love Will Grow through to the blockbusting 70's hits like Give Me Just A Little More Time, the Chairmen are back in the UK this September with full live band and I'm rather looking forward to this weekender ! Last year at Whitby the bar was set high with The Contours,  so similar expectations this September having read reviews of their live USA performances. 
Nice summary here from Kev

A special Q&A with Tommy Hunt about his early days at Scepter etc! 

The book is a great and recommended read 


however the chance of meeting up with Tommy again , seeing him perform live and the added bonus of a Q&A can't be beaten.
