Fans of BANANARAMA will be treated to a hit-filled set from the effervescent HEATHER SMALL when she supports the duo at Newmarket Nights on Friday 9th August.
As Part of M People, hits including ‘Moving On Up’, ‘One Night In Heaven’ and ‘Search For The Hero’ and albums such as ‘Elegant Slumming’ and ‘Bizarre Fruit’ achieving massive worldwide success, Heather Small became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s. M People won the Best British Dance Act Award at the BRITs in 1994 and 1995, as well as the Mercury Music Prize for ‘Elegant Slumming’.
Heather has since had great successes with two solo albums – the title track of her ‘Proud’ album has gone on to become the soundtrack synonymous to a whole host of sporting events including London’s successful 2012 Olympic bid, England’s victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony marking the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London.
She will be opening the evening for Bananarama, who are one of pop’s most influential and revered groups. Their achievements speak for themselves; an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful female band worldwide with the most charting singles, multiple sell-out tours and 32 Top 40 UK hits including ‘Venus’ and ‘Cruel Summer’. Earlier this year the band released their 11th studio album, their first in 10 years, ‘In Stereo’, which went straight into the top 40 of the UK Official Charts.
Tickets are onsale now from thejockeyclublive.co.uk with prices starting at £27. T&C’s are available on newmarket.thejockeyclub.co.uk. There are hospitality packages available to suit all budgets.
