'Mari Wilson is one you really shouldn't miss..'
- GAY TIMES
Mari Wilson (The Neasden Queen of Soul) first arrived on the scene in the early eighties with her skyscraper beehive hairdo, bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations! Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event - pure entertainment. In 1982 Mari’s records began entering the charts and she soon had six hit singles, the biggest being ‘Just What I’ve Always Wanted’ and ‘Cry Me A River’, both taken from her album ‘Showpeople’
Mari's shows still feature a myriad of glamorous costume changes. Combined with Mari’s storytelling and wit (and of course that voice!) she still stands as one of the best live performers in the country.
Her current hit show 'Ready Steady Girls!' features Mari performing classic hits from the Brit Girl singers of the 1960s such as Sandie Shaw, Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield.
