Brand New Heavies, best remembered for hits such as Midnight at the Oasis, Never Stop and Sometimes, bring their UK tour to Norwich Arts Centre on Monday (8pm).

The Heavies' big break came in the early 90s when they signed to cool label Acid Jazz and released their self-titled album to critical acclaim.

Fronted by N'Dea Davenport the singles Dream Come True, Never Stop and Stay This Way became hits on both sides of the Atlantic.

Brother Sister (1994) was the last album for a while with N'Dea Davenport.

The album spawned more singles, most notably, a cover of Maria Muldaur's Midnight at the Oasis.
