SPECIAL Mi-Soul OFFER £5 Off Tickets: Use Code: misoul CLICK TO BUYAlton McClainAlton McClain & Destiny were with Polydor Records in the late 1970s and early 80s. They signed to the label who were looking for a new Diana Ross & The Supremes and got a sound with “It Must Be Love”, more akin to The Emotions, with music that has endured to this day by lovers of disco, soul, two step and rare grooves. Alton McClain has never performed live in the UK before, and part of her show will be a tribute to her late husband Skip Scarborough, a classic songwriter of the period whose hits included ‘Lovely Day’ (Bill Withers) and ‘Love Ballad’ (George Benson).This special tribute will include songs like ‘Can’t Hide Love’ (Earth, Wind & Fire), ‘Don’t ask My Neighbors’ (The Emotions), ‘Lover To Lover’ (Maxi Anderson) and ‘Tell Me Please’ (Freda Payne).Expansion has its own CD dedicated to his work, “The Skip Scarborough Songbook”, in addition to the reissues of all three Alton McClain & Destiny albums.Tracy HamlinTracy Hamlin has a recent background as a lead singer with Pieces Of A Dream, Starpoint and as a solo artist since 2005, and came to Expansion last year as a solo artist for an album “No Limits”. Much earlier this year she blew a 1000+ UK audience away performing alongside Kashif and with the popularity of her own recordings. We are thrilled to have her perform with us at such an important night for us at Brooklyn Bowl.Joining Alton McClain and Tracy Hamlin on the night will be a mix of DJs with a shared passion for soul, playing until the early hours to make this THE soul party of 2016.
