Our Sweet Soul Friday season kicks off with a whole evening of soul & grooves to get you on the dance floor floor until 1am featuring DJ Ged Murray plus special guest DJ from The Manchester Soul Festival


The Real Thing, Chris Amoo with Dave Smith, are still looking and sounding great!    The show features million-selling hits including three No. 1 singles in the 70’s & 80’s   ‘You to me are Everything’ ‘Can’t get by without you’ & ‘Feel the Force’  Hear all the hits plus some fantastic covers such as ‘Ladies Night’ ‘Celebration’ ‘Good Times’ & ‘Ain’t no stopping us now’ in an action packed show

Original vocalists Chris Amoo and Dave Smith perform these hits and many more live on stage.

In 2005, ‘Love’s Such a Wonderful Thing’ was sampled by French dance outfit Daft Punk and re-titled ‘So Much Love to Give’. The same year the Freeloaders had a UK Top 10 single with ‘So Much Love to Give’ which featured The Real Thing resulting in the band charting across 3 decades.


The band continue to tour up and down the country selling out venues and regularly perform at 70’s & 80’s festivals alongside such artists as Rick Astley, Boy George, Belinda Carlisle, Kool and the Gang and Chic.


Commenting on The Real Thing’s success, singer Chris Amoo said, ‘There’s always going to be a sense of nostalgia about our music. It’s the sound track to so many people’s lives and that will never die.’
