For THE IMPRESSIONS this will be a momentous occasion–it will be their “farewell “ concert in the UK after almost 60 years, our last chance to salute their immense contribution to the music we love.
The Soul Togetherness team are delighted to announce that rare groove and 70’s soul icon LEROY HUTSON will also be joining us next June 16-18th for our second event. Leroy will be performing one number with a full live band on the Friday night. It will be quite a moment when for the first time in over 40 years Leroy is reunited with and shares the same stage together with The Impressions ! Then, on the Saturday night Leroy will be in the main Modern Soul room sharing with us all his most popular compositions - and all sounding stunning over the original studio quality backing tracks.
