SHAKATAK 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR + special guest LOUISE MEHAN
TOSB concerts are proud to bring one of the original UK Jazz Funk bands back to the city for their first appearance in 22 years!! Shakatak along with bands such as Level 42, Light of the World, Freeez, Central Line, Hi-Tension, Morrissey / Mullen, Second Image, Direct Drive, Linx and Incognito were all part of the 80’s UK Jazz Funk scene – a scene that certainly had a big following in Peterborough at the time with regular club nights at venues such as The Fleet Centre and The Grove in Woodston along with Slickers Club at The Cresset. It was the release of the 1981 single, "Easier Said Than Done", that gave the band the radio exposure needed for their first top-twenty hit. This record introduced their instrumental-unison vocal sound to a much wider audience, and the track stayed in the UK Singles Chart for seventeen weeks. The band actually headlined one of the early Willow Festival events way back in 1999!. On October 24th they return to The Key Theatre for the follow up performance! We're extremely pleased to announce that special guest for the show on the 24th October will be SouLutions front lady Louise Mehan. SouLutions are one of the bands at the forefront of the UK Soul scene and its an absolute pleasure to be able to bring her to Peterborough.
