The Irish Village presents The Brand New Heavies Live in Dubai.
The Brand New Heavies began in the 1980s as an instrumental acid jazz group called Brothers International.
The group came up with the Heavies name after signing their first record contract, borrowing from a liner note on a James Brown single declaring the artist “Minister of New Super Heavy Funk”.
They gained a cult following in the London club scene and soon signed to a record deal as acid jazz replaced rare groove in clubs.
The band issued a debut recording in 1990 with Jay Ella Ruth as lead singer.
The single, “Got to Give” was released to critical acclaim.
The band signed to a division of Chrysalis Records in the UK and N’Dea Davenport joined the group.
A revamped version of the first album with vocals by N’Dea Davenport was released, and the singles “Dream Come True”, “Never Stop” and “Stay This Way”, all with Davenport on lead vocals, became hits on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Stay This Way” was released with a music video directed by Douglas Gayeton that saw heavy rotation on MTV.
The Brand New Heavies then released their greatest hits album, Trunk Funk – The Best of The Brand New Heavies (2000) with Carleen Anderson on vocals for some newly recorded songs.
Come and end the season on a high with some serious acid jazz and funk and groove into summer.
