Acoustic band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Sheila G & Friends is a versatile acoustic band which covers a range of different genres including pop, motown, soul and Bollywood. The band, consisting of Sheila G (singer), a pianist, guitarist and upon request, a tabla player, which brings a truly eastern and western sound merging… The group was founded in January 2018, following Sheila G's project with the United Nations, which included writing a song for the United Nations Refugee Agency. The song, entitled 'Home' was used to promote their campaign which was successful globally. This followed a charity event organised at the prestigious Madrake in London to raise funds for the global refugee crisis; After securing several key sponsors, Sheila G & Friends hosted and put on a cinematic show consisting of a number of covers and original songs - covers included classics like 'Man in the Mirror' (Michael Jackson), Stand by Me (Ben King) and also modern ballads and classics like 'All of Me' (John Legend). The band also included a Bollywood 'mashup' of both current and modern songs and the event was a huge success; in a review by UK’s longest running music magazine ‘Record Collector’, Andy Rawll stated: ‘Sheila’s delightfully eclectic set encompassed ‘Leonard Cohen’, John Legend and well-bred originals. These revealed the soul, power and clarity of her voice.' Sheila G Trio & Friends performed at a number of corporate events across the UK and most recently, the Diwali Ball in Gibraltar where the band entertained 400 guests with a number of well known Bollywood hits including 'Sheila ki Jawani!' Other venues include the London Hilton, where the group entertained 500 guests at the annual Charity Clarity Awards UK. The band have most recently recorded a number of acoustic medleys, including hits from the 80s, 90s, 2000s and a latin and Bollywood medley. Being multi-lingual, international and cultured, the group is able to adapt to a number of different genres to suit both an intimate crowd and larger audiences.

I met Sheila G in February 2018 when we began rehearsing together for a high profile gig at the Mandrake Hotel, London. Sheila is a true professional and great at adapting songs, bearing in mind a high entertainment factor for the target audience. Her heart goes into her work as her main focus is on ensuring that the client needs are met completely. We have performed Soul, Motown, Pop and Bollywood songs together to a number of different audiences successfully.

Sheila is an unparalleled singer and performer. She has the vocal control of Whitney, but she is as unconstrained and emotive of the best contemporary artists today. I had worked with her and gotten to know her through the Record Label and specifically working on songs with Joe B. I would consider it with utmost honor to work with Sheila again, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to help share her talents with the world. She won’t let you down. She purrs like a Cheshire Cat, but Roars like a Lion! Tops in my book!!! Check her out for your yourself!
