Project Description

Boney M                                          

Featuring Maizie Williams

Everyone knows the name; everyone knows at least one of their songs. Now meet the very original member Maizie Williams.

The success of the group is the result of producer Frnk Farian recording a song in 1974 entitled “Baby Do You Want To Bump” and releasing it under the pseudonym of Boney M. by the end of the year television stations and clubs wanted to see Boney M. live. The producer did not want to go on stage, so he used an agency to find three girls and a guy. Thus the first Boney M. line up with Maizie Williams.

This line up was used for press appearances, and live shows. Later the line up was to change with Maizie Williams being the only woman to stay and become part of the official four-piece line up.

She was then joined by:

Marcia Barrett, Bobby Farrell and Liz Mitchell
