Everything – The Real Thing Story Q & A

e real thing

Monday 20 January, 2020 – 8.15 p.m.

Against a backdrop of racism and social and political turmoil, The Real Thing were the first all-black British band to hit Number 1 in the pop charts – with ‘You to Me Are Everything’ – and as a result became the original black pin-ups for teenage fans in the UK. In this new documentary the ‘other four lads from Liverpool’ tell their story from the tough streets of Toxteth to the bright lights of New York, and international stardom as Britain’s first million-selling soul and funk band.

The band’s massive success has also been tempered with personal tragedy, but for the very first time Eddy, Chris and Dave tell their incredible story of a 45-year-long career. After five decades, they remain the true pioneers of British soul.

Followed by a Q&A with director Simon Sheridan and original band members Chris Amoo and Dave Smith.
