Heatwave, one of the most popular Soul bands of the decades, with their inimitable blend of sweet, soul grooves and great Pop/Soul/Dance songs will headline this year’s Christmas Pops.
With hits like ‘Mind Blowing Decisions’, ‘Boogie Nights’ and the all-time classic ‘Always and Forever’, Heatwave are no strangers to chart success.
The concert line-up also includes:
• Midnight Soul Sisters who were created by powerhouse performer Bupsi Brown, who recently shot to fame on the X Factor where she got through to the Live Finals in Simon Cowell’s group! Their performance oozes sophistication, class and charisma as every girl is a unique talent, with personality and vocals to match.
• Informal Soul who hope to bring back great memories of Soulful Rhyl from the 60s and the 90s. Dave Williams was one of The Fabulous Twins who sang with local group The Informers with whom his Informal Soul partner Phil Hartley-Williams was tenor sax and keyboard player and musical director.
Dave said: “We really enjoy singing all those great songs, and can’t wait to share this with Rhyl’s soul fans. We’re a duo now, but with the help of modern technology, we aim for a soulful sound to get everyone joining in.”
• Ysgol Emmanuel Choir who have performed regularly at St Thomas’ Church, offering support to local fundraising initiatives and good causes.
