Join ‘The Neasden Queen of Soul’ Mari Wilson for an evening of hits old and new as she fills the venue with her enchanting voice and beautiful arrangements. Performing tracks from her latest album ‘Cover Stories’, including her renditions of ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ and ‘Be My Baby’, Mari Wilson will take the audience on a musical journey with her surprising and diverse mix of both classics and contemporary songs.
Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early eighties with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations! Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event – pure entertainment. In 1982 Mari’s records began entering the charts and she soon had six hit singles, the biggest being ‘Just What I’ve Always Wanted’ and ‘Cry Me A River’, both taken from her album ‘Showpeople’.
Mari has always been known for her live shows – hits old and new, unusual and unexpected covers and of course, a myriad of glamorous costume changes. Combined with Mari’s storytelling and wit she still stands as one of the best live performers in the country.
