Shalamar "Friends" 35th Anniversary Tour
Thursday, November 23rd, 2017
6:00 PM
William Aston Hall, Wrexham Glyndŵr University
Mold Road, Wrexham, United Kingdom
Shalamar are one of the most successful Soul groups of all time selling 25 million albums worldwide - this is their story. Soul Train producer Dick Griffey had the idea of a Soul Train singing group and drafted in Jeffrey to start forming the band. Jeffrey was hugely popular with the American public and it made sense to build on this. When asked if he knew a female singer, Jeffrey immediately sought Mickey Braiden a cousin of the De Barge family singing group. Unfortunately she was pregnant at the time. As a result Jeffrey began rehearsing Jody Watley whom he and his family had known from his church since she was 12 years old. She was in her final year of high school and loved to rehearse to Diana Ross and Barbara Streisand records. After auditioning for Dick Griffey she was included in the line up. Gary Mumford who actually sings on 'Uptown Festival' was the third member of the new group named 'SHALAMAR'. Shalamar went on to have world-wide hits such as 'Night to Remember, There It Is, I Can Make You Feel Good,' and many others. Shalamar toured the world and filled arenas and stadiums. Jeffrey left the group at its peak to pursue a solo career as one of the highest profile choreographers and dancers in the business and also as a creative consultant, singer, writer and producer. Jody followed suit to pursue a solo career. Thus came the end of the original line up of the most remembered R&B group since the Jackson's. Babyface reunited Jeffrey, Howard and Jody for his version of their hit single 'For The Lover in You' in on which he sang lead with Jeffrey, Howard and Jody on backing vocals. Shalamar followed this success with two UK Arena tours in 2000 and 2003 and then in 2005 performed on the U.K. TV show 'Hit Me Baby one more time' with Jeffrey Daniel, Howard Hewett and new singer Carolyn Griffey (daughter of Shalamar founder Dick Griffey the CEO of SOLAR records). They are currently appearing world-wide.

Amazing showing. Beautiful Venue!! His opening act Baritone was great. Howard gave an incredible intimate show. He laughed and joked with the crowd and sang his butt off!!! He did a mix of both his old and new music, slow songs and up tempo. Of vourse he did all the "SHALAMAR" hits. Only song his missed was ENOUGH but thats ok😁!!! Ge even came out in the lobby after the show and talked, hugged, and took pics with people and signed autographs. I'd go see Howard over and over again!!!

Howard did not disappoint! He sang a mixture of old and new songs with flair and style. At one point he jumped off the stag and sang to the people in the back of the venue! The crowd went nuts! He is a must see!
