Malcolm said: “I would listen to Lionel’s second album, ‘Cant Slow Down’ all the time as a teenager, not realising then that I was going to become a singer and sing these fantastic songs for a living.”

“I can still remember when I first heard All Night Long being at a house party and everyone was singing around a record player.

“It was such a memorable experience. And of course, Hello seemed to be at number one forever.”

This award winning five-star production also features a stellar line-up of world class musicians including musical director, Jonny Miller from Talon – The Best of Eagles show that has had phenomenal success over the last two decades.

A glowing testimonial from former head of Motown Records Roger Upright indicates to the fantastic quality of the Lionel.
