Both critics and fans agree that Roy G Hemmings is a great showman and dynamic singer. Understood as the longest serving former member of legendary group, The Drifters, Roy worked alongside founder member Johnny Moore for over 10 years.
He has entertained audiences around the world with his easy, relaxed style and fabulous voice in a career that spans four decades and includes appearances in several Royal Variety shows and ‘The White House’.
In 1997 Roy released his first solo album, ‘No Afro, No Sequins, No Flares’ to great critical acclaim.
He followed this in 1999 with his second solo album, ‘All Talked Out’ which includes a fine version of The Drifters classic, ‘Like Sister and Brother’.
His current stage show ‘The Sounds of Philadelphia and Motown’ includes songs by The Temptations, Four Tops, The Supremes, The Ojays, Stevie Wonder and other Motown and Soul greats, and of course, The Drifters.
