With her repertoire of unforgettable and timeless classics, Jaki Graham is one of the UK’s finest Soul and R&B singers. After a successful debut performance at Shanklin Theatre in 2021, Jaki returns to the Isle of Wight to raise the roof this October with a string of back-to-back disco anthems, guaranteed to get you dancing in the aisles!

Jaki achieved international success with a string of hits from '85 including Could it Be I'm Falling In Love?, Round and Around, Set Me Free, Step Right Up and Breaking Away, also making the Music Guinness Book of Records in the '80s as the first black British female solo artist to have 6 consecutive Top 20 hits.

Her career excelled in the '90s with her album Real Life selling more than 800,000 copies in less than four weeks. Her cover of Ain't Nobody reached No. 1 in the US Billboard Dance charts.

Jaki’s passionate love for Motown and Soul classics will ensure that this show is packed full of blistering, soulful, powerful hits including Band of Gold, Stop! In the Name of Love, Let’s Stay Together, Baby Love and countless more.

Having signed with both Motown records and EMI, this is Jaki’s most intimate live shows this year. Featuring a fantastic live band of exquisitely talented musicians, see for yourself why Jaki Graham firmly maintains her position as one of Britain’s most revered ladies of Soul.

With a voice that’s second to none, her set will include high energy, up-tempo renditions of the tracks which shaped a generation, each sounding as modern and fresh as the day they originally took the charts by storm.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience Jaki’s hits and Motown classics stripped back, whilst turning the spotlight on her powerful and emotive vocals, highlighting her effervescent personality that she’s known and loved for, up close and personal!
