LORRAINE SILVER
Northern soul legend Lorraine Silver recorded the classic “Lost Summer Love” for Pye Records when she was 13 years old in 1965.
The track went on to become an iconic track at the legendary WIGAN CASINO allnighter in the 70’s and due to high public demand the single was re-released on the Casino Classics label and sold in excess of 30,000 copies.
In her set she also performs versions of some Northern Soul classics including “Landslide” & “Long After Tonight Is All Over”.
She now has a new release “Fever Raging Out Of Control” which is receiving extensive radio airplay.

MR GRIFF
After spending over 20 years as a session drummer, working with a host of acts and musicians both locally and internationally, Ian Griffith aka ‘Mr Griff’ is now fronting his own project. Drawing on a wealth of influences from his years as a drummer, and with a band packed with some of the finest local Cambridge players, Mr Griff creates a unique blend of Soulful, Bluesy, Funk, guaranteed to get you moving. He cites influences like Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Bill Withers and with powerful vocals, catchy song writing and infectious grooves the band definitely hark back to that classic era.

JOE STAXX
Staxxy (ex The Smokestax and Shelta) is a Blue Eyed Soul singer like none other! Think of a cross between Otis Redding, Sam Cooke and Steve Marriott. Joe'll be playing keys accompanied by old bandmate Dan on guitar.

DJ TONY DELLAR (Howard Mallett & Cambridge 105 Radio). A legend on the Cambridge Northern Soul scene, he's been there right from the beginning!
