Eighties disco funk trio Shalamar are heading to Manchester this winter, bringing their scintillating live show to the city's Ritz venue on Friday 5th December for the start of a soul revival weekender (Boyz II Men play live at the Albert Hall the day after).

The group, behind hits such as 'I can make you feel good', 'There it is' and 'Take it to the Bank', originally came to prominence in the late seventies, formed by Soul Train impresario Don Cornelius and consisting of singer Gary Mumford, replaced first by Gerald Brown and then Howard Hewett, and dancers Jeffery Daniel and Jody Watley, who also sang and left the group in 1983 going on to have a successful solo career.

Daniel was also famed with inventing the moonwalk, when injury and pregnancy to Mumford and former member Watley meant he had to perform 1982 smash 'Night to Remember' by himself on Top of the Pops - watch the video above for the routine which inspired Michael Jackson.

This performance will feature the line up of the group consisting of singer Carolyn Griffey, who has fronted the group for twelve years, alongside Hewett and Daniel.
