Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music – but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group.
After a number of successful top-twenty singles in the UK, the band went on to score unprecedented international success with the release of the classic ‘Nightbirds” recording and the title track has now become a standard in the popular music repertoire. This success was repeated with the top-ten hit “Down on the Street” and the award-winning video. With the magic Al Jarreau / Shakatak combination, the group went on to record the track ‘Day by Day’ to further international acclaim.
Shakatak bring their unique blend of melodic jazz / funk to Hampton for one night only on Saturday December 1st.
