The One And Only Jumpin At Jaks

Revellers in Coventry will get the chance to see ‘The One and Only’ chart topper of the nineties at a city nightspot.

Chesney Hawkes, who was one of the first teenagers in British pop history to have a debut solo single go to number one, is set to perform a full live concert at Jumpin Jaks on 27 November.

Hawkes topped the charts in 1991 with the hit tune ‘The One and Only’ which was taken from the soundtrack to the film ‘Buddy’s Song’ in which he starred alongside Roger Daltrey.

The song became a teen anthem around the world and was knocked off the top spot in the UK after five weeks by Bryan Adams’ ‘Everything I do, I do for you’ which was number one for more than three months.

And Hawkes will treat Jaks to his legendary hit and several other songs on the night, including his latest single ‘Stay Away Baby Jane’ which was recorded along with more new material in London and LA last year.

Jumpin Jaks manager Andrew Macleod says it promises to be another great night at the SkyDome-based venue.

He said:

“Chesney Hawkes was an overnight success when he shot to number one with ‘The One and Only’ in the early nineties.

“It is one of the first songs to be mentioned whenever someone is listing the hits from the past decade as it was one of the most popular songs with young people – most people can probably still hum along to it today.

“He has a bit of a cult status which is why he is selling out at venues right across the UK.

“He has been out of the public eye for several years now in this country but he has been co-writing songs with artists right across the board from Tricky to Caprice.

“He has also written a lot of new material for himself which has been given good press in the UK and the USA and I expect he will perform some new songs on the night.

“Chesney Hawkes promises to be a great draw and we are hoping for another great night at Jaks.”

Tickets are priced at £5 and are available from the Jumpin Jaks box office or by calling 07000 35 36 37.
