ENGLISH pop singer, songwriter and actor Chesney Hawkes is the latest artist to join hit makers Leo Sayer, T’Pau, Toyah, Jaki Graham and Five for Jack Up The 80s in August.
Born into a musical family — his father is the singer Chip Hawkes, formerly with the 1960s band The Tremeloes — Chesney Hawkes’s own career began at 19, when he appeared as the title character in the film Buddy’s Song, alongside Roger Daltrey.
He is best known for the hit single The One And Only, from the film’s soundtrack.
Written by another Jack Up The 80s favourite, Nik Kershaw, who appeared at the event last year, the song was later featured in the opening credits of Doc Hollywood in 1991, starring Michael J. Fox.
The single spent five weeks at number one and still features on radio playlists, compilations and in DJ sets everywhere.
Jack Up The 80s organisers said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Chesney for his first ever appearance at Jack Up The 80s.
“An exceptionally talented musician, Chesney and his band promise a great live set crammed full of his personal 80s favourites as well as several of his own collaborations with other famous name artistes.”
Mainstream early bird tickets go on sale on Monday, January 22.
