The weather was great . I wore a maxi dress and was very comfortable. You can dress up or casual. I recommend casual at this location as folks were there with shorts, tennis shoes, and jeans, however decent..

Quotes & Highlights

Listen to some of Loose Ends’s most enduring tracks on Soundstage’s website.

Description

The London based R&B outfit, Loose Ends, took America by storm in 1983 following the release of their first album A Little Spice and the #1 single “Hanging On A String” (Contemplating). Soon to be followed by: “Slow Down” (#1), “Watching You “ (#1), “You Can’t Stop The Rain” (#3), “ Mr. Bachelor” (#3). 

The group was formed when Royal College of Music alumni, Steve Nichol (who had just finished a world tour with the well-known British rock band, The Jam) met singer/songwriter Jane Eugene at a South London party and happened to mention he was starting his own band. The two entered into collaboration, giving birth to their very first single, “In the Sky.” 

With the goal of landing a recording contract, they began to rehearse as a live band, which at one time included eleven members; one of them was Carl McIntosh. The chemistry between the three was instantaneous and they formed the group Loose Ends. Steve on keyboards, Jane on lead vocals, and Carl on bass and vocals. Hanging out at his local record store, Steve met Mick Clark. Mick would be instrumental in helping to send the trio on their way to international success. Mick had just secured a position as A&R at Virgin Records UK and told Steve, “Bring me a demo.” 

Soon after, Loose Ends signed a three single, one-album deal with Virgin UK, becoming the first R&B act signed by the label. Knowing he had something special, Mick reached out to Philadelphia, USA. Mick engaged the much sought-after producer, Nick Martinelli to produce their first album. Steve, Jane and Carl were ecstatic. They were going to the motherland of soul music — America! With the rich musical heritage of Philadelphia as the backdrop, _A Little Spice _was created and Loose Ends began their journey to No. 1 on the charts. Today, one would describe Loose Ends as a group with worldwide appeal to multi-ethnic groups.
