Heatwave, one of the most popular soul bands of the past few decades, with their inimitable blend of sweet soul grooves and great pop/soul/dance songs are back with a vengeance. Although based in Britain, Heatwave were formed by the Wilder brothers, Johnnie and Keith, on their discharge from the US Army and an advert in a music paper yielded Hull’s England born songwriter Rod Temperton. With hits like ‘Mind Blowing Decisions’, “Boogie Nights’and the all time classic ‘Always and Forever’, Heatwave are no strangers to chart success with a string of hits reaching the top twenty, and the foot stomping ‘Boogie Nights’climbing all the way to Number 1 in 1977.
Rod Temperton, the bands keyboard player and the bands main songwriter, wrote songs for Michael Jackson, George Benson and Herbie Hancock.
Heatwave then recorded two more albums, ‘Current’ and’Candles’ spurning the hits ‘Gangsters of the Groove’and ‘Jitterbuggin’.
Based in the UK and the USA – the band love the spontaneity of playing live and are currently touring worldwide. So what more could you ask for? Serious production, soaring vocals and oodles of talent. It’s all there! Apply the sun tan oil and roast yourself in the sounds of Heatwave today.
