Profile:
Big Cheese Records' house band, the "All Stars", were formed by guitarist Orlando Lund, bassists Charlie Tate and Luke Williamson (Orlando and Luke were originally part of Monkey Business, Dorado Records' first release). Also featured Maria Chamley (aka Malia) on vocals (in early recordings) and Simon Richmond (aka Palm Skin Productions) on percussion. Sharon Scott replaced Maria Chamley on lead vocals and undertook the majority of vocal duties on all subsequent BCAS recordings.

This well seasoned group of musicians play a unique style of Jazz-Funk with a heavy Soul influence. Although at home in the studio, the "All Stars" excell on stage as audiences in England, France, Switzerland and Italy have testified.
