Before the event
Home Care Preferred is pleased to sponsor what promises to be a great night of music as part of The N21 Festival on Sunday 17th June at The Waterhouse Hall in Winchmore Hill.
This is a rare chance to see Tony O’ Malley & his band.
Tony O’Malley is unquestionably one of the most charismatic vocalists working in the UK. A featured performer since the late 60’s, his cv is vast and includes stints with the iconic band “10CC” and his own seminal Jazz/Funk band “Kokomo”.
His brand of jazz-tinged contemporary soul and blues is really stunning, with his fabulous, smoky, velvety growl of a voice delivering original material and some covers in his inimitable style. With 7 CDs to his name, including one recorded live at Ronnie Scott’s plus a Jazz Standards album, Tony has established himself as one of the most original and powerful performers on the scene today.
An established artist throughout Europe Tony’s fan base extends from the likes of Belgium and Holland to Georgia in the East and beyond. Not surprisingly his regular band features some of the finest “Groove” musicians around including guitarists Neil Hubbard (Kokomo) and Adam Phillips (Hamish Stuart, Tina Turner) and drummer Ash Soan (Will Young, Robbie Williams).
If you like contemporary R&B vocals with a touch of Jazz in the Blues Brothers style, then this is definitely for you.
“..the velvet gravel throated O’Malley is one of the UK’s most undersung vocal performers...the songs drenched in the deep soulful spirit that characterises everything he touches…one of the UK’s hottest properties” Jazzwise magazine
