Soul and funk legends Shalamar are embarking on 'The Greatest Hits Tour'.

The 'A Night to Remember' group - comprising original lead singer Howard Hewett, singer and dancer Jeffrey Daniel and Carolyn Griffey, the daughter of the band's original record company owner Dick Griffey who put the band together - are bringing the disco to venues across the UK this May and June to celebrate almost five decades in music.

Gig-goers can expect classics including 'Take That to The Bank', 'Second Time Around', 'Make That Move', 'Dead Giveaway', 'Disappearing Act', 'Dancin’ In The Sheets', 'Over and Over', 'Friends'.

The run kicks off in Liverpool on May 19 and wraps in Edinburgh on June 29.

They will be joined by a very special guest, Gwen Dickey, the singer of Rose Royce, who had hits with 'Car Wash', 'Wishing On A Star', ‘Love Don't Live Here Anymore’, and 'Is It Love You’re After'.

Shalamar sold more than 25 million records worldwide and are famous for helping to bring the street dance of "body-popping" across to the UK.

Original singer Jody Watley left by 1997, with Carolyn joining in 2001.

In 1982, Jeffrey appeared on 'Top of the Pops' and wowed viewers by performing what is now known as the moonwalk.

Howard later said: "We called it the backslide."

It's believed that the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was inspired by Jeffrey and he actually ended up teaching the 'Billie Jean' hitmaker the iconic move that he popularised.
