Clyve - Funky Christmas Special
Chapel Arts CentreMENU
Clyve, is back at Chapel Arts for his 7th Christmas Special – an evening of soul, funk, seasonal favourites and after last years’ show – maybe a few surprises !! – Over the past 5 years he has performed to thousands all over the UK and in the USA, creating a brand of neo soul with his new album, whilst keeping the authentic soul sound of the past for the funky specials. His show is guaranteed to make you dance with tracks from the likes of Chic, Chaka Khan, Motown Legends and even a bit of Beyonce.
Clyve’s new album “Blue Eyed Soul”, which was recorded in Bath, New York, and then then finished off at Puzzle Maker Studios in Bristol, is getting great reviews and next year he will take the “Blue Eyed Soul Tour” around the UK as well as Europe and USA. Last year he performed alongside his buddy Gail Porter at the 2018 Special Olympics Opening Ceremony in Scotland, with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, five years on from performing the Official Anthem “Living Our Dream” at the Special Olympics Opening Ceremony at the iconic Royal Crescent, Bath.
Clyve has also been involved in various musical styles over the past decades, fronting Frame By Frame in the 80’s, and in the 90’s, enjoying European Dance chart success with “Painted Moon”. He made his US live debut in 2001 in front of 200,000 in Washington DC and then for a short while dabbled in musical theatre, before starting the Blue Eyed Soul project in 2013.
He has also regularly been a guest on BBC Radio, performing in the Live Lounge and is a regular co host on the Ginger NY TV Chat show and works on his own Radio Show “Block Party”.
The last six years of Christmas Shows at Chapel Arts have sold out and been a great start to the Holiday Season – so make sure you’re prepared to dance and sing along
