In November 1997, Five released their debut single "Slam Dunk (Da Funk)", which debuted at number 10 in the UK Singles Chart. A year later they earned their first major international hit, "When the Lights Go Out", which cracked the U.S. top 10 and earned Gold status there soon after. Finally in October 1999, after three consecutive number-two peaks, "Keep on Movin'" became their first UK number 1, as well as their biggest selling single to date. In 2000, 5ive opened the BRIT Awards with Queen and were awarded Best Pop Act of the year.
The band split shortly after the departure of Sean Conlon in 2001. There was an an unsuccessful attempt to reform in 2006, but in 2012 Sean, Ritchie, Abz and Scott got back together for The Big Reunion and will be performing their hits as part of the Summer Party at Chester Rocks.
911 formed when Jimmy Constable met Simon "Spike" Dawbarn whilst working as a dancer on the show The Hit Man and Her. They decided to put a band together with Lee Brennan and the trio started touring up and down the UK. After they became popular, they independently released two singles which both made the UK top 40, "Night to Remember" and "Love Sensation". Following this, a major label bidding war ensued and 911 were eventually signed up by Virgin Records.
They had their first top 10 hit in 1996 with "Don't Make Me Wait", and follwed this up with nine more successive UK top 10 hits followed including "Bodyshakin'", which became their signature song. in the four years that followed 911 released three studio albums and they're back to play you all the hits at The Big Reunion Summer Party in the 8th June.
The Honeyz are an English R&B girl formed in 1997.
The original line-up was Célena Cherry, Heavenli Denton and Naima Belkhiati. Mariama Goodman replaced Dention in 1999 and left the group after three singles. But in June this line up wll hit the stage at the Roodee.
The Honeyz debut single, "Finally Found" was released in August 1998 and peaked at number four in the UK Singles Chart and remains their biggest hit. "Finally Found" introduced the trio to the British public and went on to sell more than 350,000 copies. The follow-up, "End of the Line" notched up similar sales figures, peaking at number five.
On the 8th June you can look forward to the Honeyz singing their singles and tracks from their 1998 studio album "Wonder No. 8".
A1 are an English-Norwegian pop group formed in 1998. Their first single, "Be the First to Believe", entered the UK Singles Chart at number six in mid-1999. They achieved success in the UK and other parts of the world in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In the UK, they scored two number ones and eight top 10 hits, seven of which were written by the band. Adding to this, they also won a BRIT Award for "British Breakthrough Act" in 2001.
In December 2013, it was announced that A1 would be appearing without original member Marazzi for the itv2 documentary The Big Reunion. This line-up of Christian Ingebrigtsen, Mark Read, and Ben Adams will take to the stage at The Big Reunion Summer Party on the 8th June.
