Add to Calendar 2017-10-20 21:30 2017-10-20 Beverley Skeete at 606 Club Beverley has had a career in the music industry that is the stuff that dreams are made of. As well as being a first call singer for numerous high profile projects she has also been a pivotal member of ex-Rolling Stones’ bassist Bill Wyman’s project Rhythm Kings, playing and touring with them since the mid-1990s. Bill said of her contribution to their music, “she turned out to be my biggest find of all – putting another dimension into our songs”. However, her CV is also loaded with the names of dozens of well-known pop, soul and dance acts with whom she’s recorded including Robbie Williams, Will Young, M People, Tina Turner, Aswad, Jimmy Cliff, Neneh Cherry, Jamiroquai, ABC and Dido. Her live credits are also extensive, including the likes of Elton John, Chaka Khan, Georgie Fame, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones and Johnny Cash. She’s also worked on numerous film and TV projects including the movie “Love Actually”, and if all that wasn’t enough has found the time to release five solo albums. It’s fair to say that Beverley’s talent and versatility have put her in a class that few can equal. For her 606 date she has put together a standout band, including Nathan O'Borne-guitar, Adam Saunders-piano, Chris Dodd-bass and Graham Cuttill-drums. And if all that wasn’t enough, she’s also asked the wonderful singer Kevin Leo to join her to help make the night just that little bit more special. This gig is an opportunity to get up close to one of the UK scene’s great singers and her truly impressive Friends.

“Beverley Skeete…came into her own with a perfectly paced version of James Brown’s ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s World’.” LondonJazz News
