As a highly respected artiste and singer, Roy G Hemmings has a distinguished track record of fine stage craft. Roy has enjoyed major success when he signed a recording deal in the mid-seventies with the J.A.L.N. Band, one of the first bands to storm the British charts with the dance record, ‘Disco Music, I Like It’ co-produced by Pete Waterman. After three well-received albums, the group disbanded and Roy launched his solo career. In 1997 Roy released his first solo album, ‘No Afro, No Sequins, No Flares’ to great critical acclaim. He followed this in 1999 with his second solo album, ‘All Talked Out’. The release of his latest album in 2017 ‘Philly vs Motown’ includes songs from his stage show and featuring a fine version of ‘The Drifters’ classic, ‘Like Sister and Brother’.

The Dictionary of Soul ® show includes songs by Otis Reading, James Brown, The O-Jays, The Supremes, Temptations, Four Tops and other Soul / Motown greats. The show also features the Soul Divas The Prim-ettes, adding a stunning dimension of smooth harmonies and slick Motown dance routines. Diana Ross and Mary Wilson were in fact founder members of the Prim-ettes before changing their name to The Supremes. The show is full of timeless songs performed with energy and sensitivity, creating emotions that touch the hearts of audiences everywhere.

Audiences enjoy a musical array of all-time greats: Get Ready, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, Me & Mrs Jones, Under the Boardwalk, Can’t Help Myself, My Girl, Save the Last Dance for Me, and Love Train.

A Show For Everyone!
