The Impressions live in London - 10 June

AGMP & Jazz FM present the first ever UK performance of one of the most important soul groups of all time - The Impressions. The band will be performing all of their hits and the songs of Curtis Mayfield with backing from the Curtom Orchestra. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience one of the greatest soul groups in person. The exact line-up of the group has not been advertised, but I would assume it to consist of Sam Gooden (who originally joined in 1958), Fred Cash (who originally joined in 1960) and Reggie Torian (who originally joined in 1973 after Curtis Mayfield's departure).

UK funk band, Speedometer, have been confirmed as the support act for this concert, with Andy Fairclough (The Root Source / The Organism) sitting in on piano/organ.
