With 25 million record sales under their belts, Howard and Jeffrey, along with the newest member Carolyn Griffey drive audiences crazy with a dynamic blend of funky feel good music.
Last year the group recently played their first ever UK festivals at Chilfest and at Let’s Rock Bristol, generating considerable audience frenzy. The almost insatiable demand for funky dance music in the UK has rarely been stronger.
As Shalamar, Howard Hewitt and Jeffrey Daniel sold over 25 million records worldwide and collected no less than 100 gold, silver and platinum awards. Howard and Jeffrey, together with Carolyn Griffey – the daughter of Solar Records founder Dick Griffey, bring an exciting blend of funk, disco and soul to every live show. One of the most powerful and energetic acts on the circuit today. As noted in the British Hit Singles & Albums, Shalamar were regarded as fashion icons and trendsetters, and helped to introduce ‘body-popping’ to the United Kingdom. Jeffrey Daniel brought street dance to the UK – he is noted as the dance mentor for Michael Jackson and the man that taught him the moonwalk. Howard Hewett is a one of the most iconic US soul artistes of all time, releasing numerous solo albums and collaborating or performing with some of the greats including Stevie Wonder, George Duke, Earth, Wind and Fire, Teena Marie, Anita Baker, Dionne Warwick, Deniece Williams, El Debarge. He was recently voted by Soul Tracks as one of the top 10 greatest male soul singers of all time.
“The final track was “I Can Make You Feel Good” and yet again, it was like watching fireworks. The dance routines, the singing, the chemistry, all merging to create something truly spectacular. “ Hey Music Lover – April 2015
“Their version of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk also had a great reaction, with people scrambling for their phones to record it. It was a night to remember certainly, with perhaps their most famous song doing what it says on the tin!” 5 star review, Music-News.com – Chilfest July 2015
