Cameo - One of the grestest Funk Rock and Soul groups of all time live at HMV Ritz, Manchester

Sunday 15th July // 7pm // £22.50

Cameo have topped the R and B charts for more than a decade, sold more than 17 million albums and are one of the most popular Funk/Rock and Soul bands of all time. Line-ups change, styles evolve, and record labels merge, but Cameo have maintained their core funkiness for nearly four decades. Cameo have permanently marked major turning points in music and set the standard that many have tried to duplicate and follow. Cameo’s creator and producer; Larry Blackmon, along with founding member Tomi Jenkins are once again ready to challenge the way the world listens to music, live at the HMV RITZ, Manchester on Sunday 15th July.

The New York City-based band, led by drummer Larry Blackmon, debuted with a single called Find My Way on Chocolate City Records. Larry Blackmon has been synonymous with Cameo since the beginning of his career in the music industry, growing up in New York City, and digesting the sounds of the city streets.  A sought-after writer/producer/director/ musician;  Blackmon has produced projects for several outstanding and chart topping artists including: Bobby Brown, Chaka Kahn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall and 8 Ball and MJG, just to name a few.  Many artists have paid respect through the replication of Cameo’s unique funk-filled sounds. A multitude of recording artists and filmmakers have re-created and/or used original recorded versions of their favorite CAMEO music and songs in projects/films being played today. These artists include TuPac, Boys II Men, Will Smith, 8-Ball and MJG, Snoop Dogg, Mariah Carey, KORN to name just to name a few.
