JOHN CHEATDOM WAS BORN IN BROOKLYN AND HAS NOW LIVED IN LONDON FOR OVER 30 YEARS.  HE WENT TO LONDON WITHOUT KNOWING ANYONE AND WAS OFFERED A CHANCE TO COME TO ENGLAND BY PROMOTER PETER STRINGFELLOW WHO WAS IN SEARCH OF SOUL ACTS THAT HE COULD BRING TO ENGLAND TO PERFORM AT HIS MOJO CLUB. 

 

JOHN WAS SINGING WITH A BROOKLYN BASED GROUP BY THE NAME OF “THE VELOURS” WHICH PRODUCED A HIT RECORD IN 1956 BY THE NAME OF “CAN I COME OVER TONIGHT.”   AT THE AGE OF 17, HE WAS TRAVELING ALL OVER AMERICA PERFORMING WITH THE GROUP TO INCLUDE THE PLATTERS.  HOWEVER, THE VALOURS BROKE UP ABOUT THE SAME TIME AS THE PLATTERS AND FOUND HIMSELF SINGING WITH A REORGANIZED GROUP THAT PICKED UP THE NAME.

 

AFTER TOURING EUROPE OVER THE YEARS AS A MEMBER OF WHAT BECAME THE MAGICAL PLATTERS, HE MANAGED TO CARVE OUT A SIGNIFICANT CAREER AND LIFE FOR HIS FAMILY.  EVEN TODAY, JOHN TRAVELS REGULARLY WITH THE ENGLISH VERSION OF THE PLATTERS AND HAS MAINTAINED HIS PERFORMANCE SKILLS AT THEIR PEAK AT THIS STAGE IN HIS LIFE.
