Jimmy James started his musical career, composing and singing, at the early age of 16.
His first successful single ‘Bewildered and Blue’ was followed by another self penned hit ‘Come to Me Softly’ which has become his signature song.
In 1964 he was asked to join as the lead singer with one of Jamaica’s leading bands ‘The Vagabonds’ and together they left Jamaica for what was to be a six month tour of the UK.
The outfit became so popular that they decided to extend the tour and thus ended up being residents of the UK.
Their popularity within the UK provided a platform for them to launch into the rest of Europe.

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.
