Band on the Wall is delighted to present American soul and funk legend Keni Burke live in Manchester with 8-piece live band featuring members of the Sunburst Band and Incognito. Expect his massive hit Risin To The Top plus many more delights from one of modern music’s true greats.

An original member of the Five Stairsteps who scored a hit with million-selling single Ooh Child, Kenny is perhaps best known for his string of hits in the 1980s including the massively influential and much-sampled Risin’ To The Top. Collaborating with a who’s who of the world’s greatest artists including Sly & The Family Stone, Natalie Cole, Billy Preston, Terry Callier, Curtis Mayfield, Dusty Springfield, Bill Withers, Diana Ross and Gladys Knight, Keni Burke possesses an extraordinarily seductive voice and has written some of funk, soul and disco’s most lovely songs.  An incredible night beckons in the company of one of modern music’s true greats. Advance booking strongly recommended.
