Roy Hemmings’ Sounds of Philadelphia & Motown

31st August 2024

Both critics and fans agree that Roy Hemmings is a great showman and dynamic singer. Understood as the longest-serving former member of the legendary group, The Drifters, Roy had worked alongside founder Johnny Moore for more than 20 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 twice at The White House for then-President Bill Clinton.

As a highly respected artiste and singer, he has a distinguished track record of fine stagecraft. Roy enjoyed major success when he signed a recording deal with Magnet Records in the mid-seventies with the J.A.L.N. Band, one of the first bands to storm the British charts with the dance record, Disco Music, I Like It produced by Pete Waterman.
