She sang at the renowned R& B recording center and recorded at Quinvy, Fame, Broadway Sound, & Muscle Shoals Sound as well as American Sound in Memphis, Tn. and Atlantic Records Studio in New York. During this time she backed up Etta James, Dionne Warwick, Ella Washington, Merrilee Rush, Persey Sledege, B.J. Thomas, Joe Simon, Joe Tex, Clarence Carter, The Box Tops, Roosevelt Greer, Bobby Womack, James Purify & Ben E. King.
They recorded in 1969 with Elvis on the American Sound Sessions in Memphis which produced such hits as Suspicious Minds, In The Ghetto and Kentucky Rain.
Following the government’s latest announcement we have to postpone both the School Disco Weekend at Unity resort and our Voices weekend at Beverley Park.
We will be in touch with everyone affected in next two weeks.
Please allow us to contact you and we thank you for your patience in advance during this difficult time
Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2021 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).
Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.
We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.
If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.
We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.
As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success
Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.
The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
