Special guests Heatwave, one of the most popular soul bands of the past few decades, with their inimitable blend of sweet soul grooves and great pop/soul/dance songs are back with a vengeance.
Although based in Britain, Heatwave were formed by the Wilder brothers, Johnnie and Keith, on their discharge from the US Army and an advert in a music paper yielded Hull's England born songwriter Rod Temperton. With hits like 'Mind Blowing Decisions', 'Boogie Nights' and the all time classic 'Always and Forever', Heatwave are no strangers to chart success with a string of hits reaching the top twenty, and the foot stomping 'Boogie Nights' climbing all the way to Number 1 in 1977.
Rod Temperton, the band's keyboard player and main songwriter, wrote songs for Michael Jackson, George Benson and Herbie Hancock. Heatwave then recorded two more albums, 'Current' and 'Candles' spurning the hits 'Gangsters of the Groove' and 'Jitterbuggin'.
Based in the UK and the USA - the band love the spontaneity of playing live and are currently touring worldwide. So what more could you ask for? Serious production, soaring vocals and oodles of talent. It's all there! Apply the sun tan oil and roast yourself in the sounds of Heatwave today.
There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
