Thanks to everybody for making Friday night truly special. It was our 11th time at Hideaway and though the other ten were good this was the best yet. Everything seemed close to perfection. The music - Wayne was phenomenal, as were his musicians. The food was superb, the service was exceptional (a special thanks to the waiting staff who managed to weave their way through the dancers without causing problems). The sound was fantastic, and the audience played their part too! I have been gigging for 40 years and realise that nights like Friday don't come very often.
The “Queen” of studio and backing vocals, you may not know Mary’s name but you will certainly have heard her fantastic voice. Her powerful, soulful vocals have been heard with the cream of the Jazz, Soul, R&B and Pop world, including the likes of Lionel Ritchie, Grace Jones, Chaka Khan, Courtney Pine, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight, Culture Club, Marcella Detroit, Donna Summer and Roy Ayres. As well as more than 15 years as a studio singer Mary has also featured as a lead vocalist with a number of “Groove” and Dance bands, most notably the band “Up Yer Ronson”. The 2004 release of “Young Hearts” with Kujay Da Da once again brought Mary to the forefront of the Dance Music industry, culminating in her show stopping performance at the 2004 House Music Awards.
After many years of making other singers sound good Mary has finally decided to step in to the limelight with her own band, much to the delight of her fans. So, if you like great Soul and “Groove” vocals then you definitely have to make it to this gig, you won’t be disappointed, I guarantee it!
“Signed, Sealed, Delivered” is a tour de force for Pearce, who sings upfront and strong…..” Guardian
