Many of the numbers, originally written in the 70s and 80s, have been re-interpreted with contemporary musical influences whilst still retaining the elements that made the songs such huge hits.

With over 800 million sales of Boney M albums around the world, including 22 Number One hits, the group was a phenomenon and their music has reached far and wide during the past 30 years.

Daddy Cool tells the story of 'Sunny', a young manwho lives for his music. Caught up in local rivalry between East and West London crews, he meets and falls in love with 'Rose', daughter of the East End's notorious club owner 'Ma Baker'.

Going back to music, he became a member of the hugely talented collective, So Solid Crew, who went on to win two MOBO's, a Brit Award and scored a platinum selling debut album.
