Suzi Sheridan

 

Suzi started dancing as a toddler and during her school years performed in many Pantomimes, old time musicals and shows and eventually stopped dancing when her horse became first priority.
It was whilst at college that she acquired an interest in playing music and with friend Jean March formed their first band 'Double Vision'. Suzi on Guitar & Vocals, Jean on Bass & Vocals and a drummer called Mark.
Suzi and Jean made a good writing partnership and the band played a number of gigs.


It was then that Suzi met Music Shop owner Dave Hunt, who was after a Bass player, so he naturally provided the gear and Suzi joined him as a bass player and they worked as a country Duo. There was plenty of work and laughs with Dave for a good few years. Suzi also went out solo singing for her equity card!

In 1984 Suzi joined a band called Limelight who played covers of the pop songs of the day. The band played all the clubs and pubs and it was during this time that Suzi first met Mike whilst supporting The Nightriders at theTyburn House.

In the mid eighties Suzi joined professional all girl band Indigo Lady, who were at the time the Top British country band.
The girls played many festivals and supported Amercian Dan Seals on his theatre tour.
Several years were spent on the road playing at many of the countries army/RAF bases and Holiday camps, as well as the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and the Birmingham Grand Prix.
Later on the girls were signed to Big Boy Management - Peirre Tubbs and took another name of 'The Girl Can't Help It', which was a band playing their own material - brand of light pop/rock


The Girl Can't Help It played all the main London venues and many rock festivals to include The Kent Custom Bike Show.
They were also thrilled to play live on TV for the official opening of the Channel Tunnel.
One of the highlights was to be lucky enough to be the support band for Black Sabbath.
Although the band spent many hours in the recording studio no tracks are available on CD.



In 1991 Suzi decided to form her own band playing the songs of the great 'Girl Groups' from the 60's.
The Devotions worked extremely well up and down the country and went through several line-up changes before eventually becoming Mike Sheridan & The Devotions!
Eventually The Devotions became a duo and the rest is history!
