The ‘Neasden Queen of Soul’, Mari Wilson, burst onto the scene in the early 80s with her skyscraper beehive, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations (featuring singer-songwriter Julia Fordham and Eastenders star Michelle Collins). Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event - pure entertainment.

1982 brought six hit singles, including Cry Me A River and the top ten smash Just What I Always Wanted, as well as constant touring across the globe. A move to musical theatre saw Mari taking on the role of Nickie Pignatelli in Phil Willmottʼs production of Sweet Charity, appearing alongside Boy George in the West End hit TABOO and playing Dusty Springfield in Dusty The Musical, which toured some of the biggest theatres in the UK.

Mari’s new show, Pop Deluxe, features unique interpretations of songs from those Brit girls who inspired her as she was growing up in North London; Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Sandie Shaw, Cilla Black and more, alongside her own classic hits
