The Real Thing

When you think of 70s soul and disco music, there are a few tracks you might instantly think of. Chances are, You To Me Are Everything by The Real Thing is going to be one of them. With its infectious piano hook, incredible string arrangement and instantly recognisable vocals, it’s a hit in every sense of the word.

When: Saturday 18th May 2024
Where: The Grand, Clitheroe, BB7 2DL

We’re lucky enough to be hosting The Real Thing with original vocalists Chris Amoo and Dave Smith on Saturday 18th May here at The Grand in Clitheroe. Alongside their catalogue of hits – You To Me Are Everything, Children Of The Ghetto, Can You Feel The Force and more, they’ll be playing a selection of amazing new material from their 2022 album A Brand New Day.

New Music

This is their first album of new material in 44 years, and it hit No.3 in Amazon’s best seller list. The album’s lead single Hang On Never Let Go is sure to please fans of their older material, particularly those that like the slower, more intimate tracks. 

The Real Thing’s live shows are absolutely not to be missed. They can whip up a crowd instantly and Smith and Amoo’s vocals are just as good today as they ever were, plus their band is world-class. You’re guaranteed to see a range of material played by one of the best live acts around, and you’re more than likely to end up singing along, dancing and experiencing an incredible night!


Support for The Real Thing comes from Richie Sampson who will be performing classic pop and soul hits from numerous artists including The Drifters, Four Tops & Temptations.

Richie is another class act and has actually performed alongside former members of The Drifters including Ray Lewis, Billy Lewis and Butch Leake. Expect to hear a range of classic hits from Richie and his band that will instantly transport you to the golden age of soul and disco.

If you’re a fan of classic soul and disco music, or you just fancy a night of world-class entertainment, then get yourself down to watch The Real Thing live here at The Grand on the 18th May.
