THE GLORY DAYS of top vocal group Odyssey, one of the most successful soul/disco acts of their era
From their debut album emerged their first smash single – “Native New Yorker”, an international hit late in 1977. Additionally, Lillian’s eldest son, Steven Collazo had become part of Odyssey behind the scenes, recording as a background vocalist, journeyman session musician and musical director for their live performances and tours.
A couple of years later, the group cut their “Hang Together” album. It contained Use It Up And Wear It Out, while the flipside, “Don’t Tell Me, Tell Her” received major airplay on US Black Radio. In the UK, Use It Up shot to the top ten, followed by “If You’re Looking For A Way Out”, “Inside Out”, and the Lamont Dozier classic “Going Back To My Roots”, among others.

Dave Finnegan’s The Commitments
Saturday 19 January at 7.30pm
Direct from the hit Hollywood Film “The Commitments”, the man who has fronted the touring band for the last ten years, we are proud to present DAVE FINNEGAN’S COMMITMENTS.
Dave Finnegan has performed alongside such legendary artists as James Brown, Wilson Picket, Edwin Starr, Steve The Colonel‚ Cropper, Dennis Edwards (The Temptations), BB King, Sam Moore, Dan Ackroyd, Alexander O Neal and many, many more. It was Sam Moore who questioned, “how can a little white guy have a soul and a voice that’s so black?”.
DAVE FINNEGAN’S COMMITMENTS feature the same commitment to their music, with the instantly recognisable horn section, and that sweet soul rhythm section. On their ongoing journeys they undoubtedly continue where the film left off, still spreading the word of Otis Redding, Wilson Picket and the other apostles of soul, and in doing so enabling us all to experience the essence of SWEET SOUL MUSIC.
Now with his NEW SENSATIONAL SHOW & his own 8 PIECE BAND behind him performing all the hits from the film & much, much, more!
