B I VANILLI L L I M E H C U O B Y C A L O MER FRANK FARIAN

Frank bought his first guitar at the age of 12 and in 1955 he discovered rock´n roll. In the 60‘s he started his first band and covered songs by artists such as Otis Redding and The Drifters.

In 1975 he put together a band fronted by a black dancer and three singers, called Boney M. The band had their first hit-single with “Daddy Cool” and went on to have 38 top ten hits between 1975 and 1988. This included 15 number ones in Germany and 22 top tens in England, including five number ones. Three Boney M. singles now grace the Top 10 all-times bestseller list in England: “Mary´s Boy Child”, “Rivers Of Babylon” and “Brown Girl In The Ring”. Boney M. became the first Western group to perform in the Communist Soviet Union. They played a set to 2,700 people in Red Square. In 1982 Frank built “Studio Rosbach“, pioneer in the use of digital technology, in which he produced the internationally renowned million seller hits of Milli Vanilli, La Bouche and No Mercy. In 1984 Stevie Wonder visited the studio to produce his No. 1 hit “I Just Called To Say I Love You”. Currently Frank is involved in a Hollywood movie project called “The Milli Vanilli Story” and is preparing the Daddy Cool Show for Las Vegas.

DIE STORY

VON DADDY COOL

Ein Trommelschlag, ein Blitzlicht, ein tanzender Körper – Daddy Cool beginnt! JAMAIKA: Pearl verabschiedet sich von all ihren

Freunden. Zusammen mit ihrem 10-jährigen Sohn Sunny wandert sie nach England aus. Alle singen „Holiday“.

CLUB RASPUTIN: Eveline Baker erfährt von Benny,

dass seine Freundin Rose (Evelines Tochter) neuerdings Interesse an einem jungen Mann namens Sunny zeigt. Eveline verbietet ihrer Tochter daraufhin, Sängerin zu werden („Ma Baker“).

werten Lela, der besten Freundin der Familie. Der junge Sunny spielt im Freien und trifft ein kleines Mädchen namens Rose.

Zwischenzeitlich gesteht Pearl ihrer Freundin Lela, dass sie sich immer noch nach ihrem ehemaligen Liebhaber, Daddy Cool, sehnt. Sie erzählt Lela, dass Daddy Cool Sunnys Vater ist. Ihrem Sohn hat sie das nie gesagt. („Got a Man on my Mind“) ... und Daddy Cool lebt nicht mehr.

15 JAHRE SPÄTER: Eine Weihnachtsfeier in einer

ÜBERRASCHUNGSFEIER FÜR SUNNY: Rose

LONDON: Pearl und ihr Sohn leben bei der liebens-

Kirche. Pearl und Sunny (inzwischen 25 Jahre alt) haben es schon immer geliebt, zu dieser Gelegenheit „Mary’s Boy Child“ zu singen. Während der Messe beweist Sunny zum ersten Mal seine tänzerischen Fähigkeiten. Es ist sein Geburtstag! PROBERAUM: Sunny tanzt mit seinem Team („Sun-

shine“) – sie wollen in diesem Jahr einen Tanzwettbewerb gewinnen, werden aber von Benny und seiner Crew („Thunder“) vertrieben. Ein erster Tanzwettkampf entbrennt zu „Let it all be Music“. Vor dem Proberaum trifft Sunny nach 15 Jahren erstmals wieder auf Rose. Rose würde für ihr Leben gerne singen und so bittet Sunny sie, Sängerin in seinem Team zu werden („One Way Ticket“).

findet sich unvermittelt zwischen allen Freunden von Sunny wieder; es wird gesungen und getanzt, um seinen Geburtstag zu feiern („Brown Girl in the Ring“). Plötzlich taucht Eveline Baker, die einst Pearl den Liebhaber (Daddy Cool) abspenstig machte, vor der Kirche auf. Sie versucht, Pearl und deren Sohn Sunny von ihrer Tochter fernzuhalten. Benny ertappt Rose bei Proben mit dem „Sunshine“-Team, woraufhin er wütend wird und sie schlägt. Das Team beschützt Pearl und gibt gemeinsam zum ersten Mal „Sweet Dreams“ zum Besten. Ein wahnsinniger Erfolg! Eveline Baker ist wütend und Pearl macht sich Sorgen angesichts der Freundschaft (oder ist es vielleicht mehr?), die sich zwischen Rose und Sunny entwickelt: „Baby don’t forget my Number“.


PAUSE CLUB RASPUTIN: Alle Besucher des Clubs singen

und tanzen, während sie auf den Beginn des Tanzwettbewerbs warten („Rasputin“). Eveline sagt Sunny, dass sie dafür sorgen kann, dass er den Wettkampf gewinnt, wenn er im Gegenzug dafür bereit ist, auf Rose zu verzichten. Die Kirche ist mittlerweile geschlossen, da sie alt und einsturzgefährdet ist. Vor der Kirche sitzen sich die Gemeindemitglieder und beklagen den Verlust ihres „Heims“ („Rivers of Babylon“). Pearl und Lela entwickeln einen Plan, um die Kirche zu retten. Sunny verlangt von seiner Mutter, ihn über seinen Vater aufzuklären, den er nie kennengelernt hat. Pearl erzählt ihm schließlich davon, wie sie London verließ, schwanger vom Tänzer Daddy Cool. Sie zeigt ihm eine Geburtstagskarte, die Daddy Cool vor vielen Jahren an seinen Sohn geschrieben hat. Sunny stürmt davon und lässt Pearl mit ihren Erinnerungen allein („I can’t stand the Rain“). Sunny konfrontiert Rose mit dem, was er gerade über seinen Vater erfahren hat: Er war der Mann, der Rose aufgezogen hat und der gemeinsam mit Eveline Baker den Club Rasputin führte. Vollkommen verwirrt beenden die beiden ihre Beziehung („When I die“).

In der Zwischenzeit organisieren Pearl und Lela ein Straßenfest, um die Kirche zu retten („Calendar Song“). Sunny und sein Team sind ohne Rose verzweifelt, auch Benny weiß nicht, wie er ohne sie weitermachen soll („Blame it on the Rain“). Rose vermutet, dass ihre Mutter ein Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit vor ihr verbirgt. Sie entdeckt Daddy Cools Testament, in welchem steht, dass der Club Rasputin seinem Sohn Sunny gehören soll, wann immer dieser nach London zurückkehren sollte. Eveline begreift, dass sie dabei ist, alles zu verlieren, für das sie ihr Leben lang gekämpft hat. TANZWETTBEWERB: Benny und sein „Thunder“-Team bieten eine fantastische Show. Im Vergleich zu ihnen wirken Sunny und seine Leute uninspiriert und niedergeschlagen; bis plötzlich Rose auftaucht: Sie ist zurück, und gemeinsam mit der „Sunshine“-Crew führt sie eine wunderbare Version von „Daddy Cool“ auf. Die Menge tobt – und sie gewinnen den Wettbewerb. DER

Rose erklärt Sunny, dass sein Vater ihm den Club Rasputin hinterlassen hat. Sunny ist überwältigt von seinen Gefühlen und benennt den Club um in „Daddy Cool“. Sunny und Rose können sich endlich zu ihrer Liebe bekennen („Sunny“).


A beat. A flashlight. A dancing body. Daddy Cool has started! JAMAICA: Pearl is saying goodbye to all her friends.

She is emigrating to London with her 10-year-old son: Sunny. Everybody sings: Holiday! LONDON: Pearl and her son come to live with the

friendly Lela. The young Sunny is playing outside and meets a little girl called Rose.

15 YEARS LATER: 15 years later: A Christmas celebration in the church. Pearl and Sunny (now 25) have always loved to sing “Mary’s Boy Child there”. Sunny demonstrates his dancing skills for the first time in the middle of the service. It’s his birthday!

CLUB RASPUTIN: Eveline Baker hears from Benny

that his girlfriend Rose (Eveline’s daughter) has taken a sudden interest in a guy named Sunny. Eveline forbids her daughter to start a singing career (“Ma Baker”). In the meantime, Pearl confesses to Lela that she is still longing for her former lover Daddy Cool. She confesses that he is Sunny’s father, but she had never told this to her son. (“Got a Man on my Mind”)...and Daddy Cool isn’t alive anymore …. SURPRISE PARTY FOR SUNNY: Rose sudden-

ly finds herself among all Sunny’s friends; they dance and sing to celebrate his birthday (“Brown Girl in the Ring”).

(“Sunshine”). They want to win the Dance Contest this year, but they are chased away by Benny and his crew (“Thunder”). The first dance battle takes place to the song “Let it all be Music.”

Suddenly Eveline Baker appears outside the church. In the past she had stolen Daddy Cool away from Pearl and now she is trying to keep Sunny and his mother out of the way of her daughter. Benny catches Rose rehearsing with the Sunshine crew. He becomes angry and hits her. The crew protects her, and for the first time they perform together: “Sweet Dreams”. It is a raving success!

Outside the rehearsal room Sunny meets Rose again (for the first time after 15 years). She would love to sing, so Sunny asks her to become a singing member of his crew (“One Way Ticket”).

Eveline Baker gets angry and Pearl gets worried when they see how the friendship (or is it more than that?) between Rose and Sunny is growing (“Baby, don’t forget my Number”).

REHEARSAL ROOM: Sunny dances with his crew


THE STORY

OF DADDY COOL

INTERVAL CLUB RASPUTIN: Everybody is singing and danc-

ing in the club, waiting for the Dance Contest (Rasputin).

Eveline tells Sunny she can let him win the contest, if he is prepared to drop Rose in exchange. The church is closed, because it is too old and nearly falling apart. Outside, all the church-goers sit and lament their lost ‘home’ (Rivers of Babylon). Pearl and Lela think of a plan to save the church. Sunny demands his mother to tell him about his father, who he never knew. Pearl explains to him finally how she left London, pregnant by Daddy Cool, the dancer. She shows him a card Daddy Cool had written for his son’s birthday many years ago. Sunny storms away and leaves his mother behind with her memories (I can’t stand the Rain). Sunny confronts Rose with everything he’s suddenly found out about his father: he was the man that had brought up Rose with Eveline Baker and had run the Rasputin club. Totally confused, the two end their relationship (“When I die”). In the meantime Pearl and Lela are organising a Carnival to save the church (Calendar Song).

Sunny and his crew are desperate without Rose. Benny doesn’t know how to go on without her either (“Blame it on the Rain”) Rose suspects that her mother has been hiding a secret from the past. She finds Daddy Cool’s last will; it says that if his son Sunny eventually returned to London, then the Rasputin club would be his. Eveline realises she is losing everything she has always fought for. THE DANCE CONTEST: Benny and the Thunder

crew do their fantastic dance act. Compared with them Sunny and his crew are really low-spirited; until Rose suddenly appears: she is back! And sings and dances with the Sunshine crew in an incredible act (“Daddy Cool”). The roof comes down and they win the contest. Rose tells Sunny that his father has left him the club; he is overwhelmed by emotion and renames the Club “Daddy Cool”! Sunny and Rose can finally avow their love (“Sunny”).


LA HISTORIA DE DADDY COOL

Un redoble de tambores, un resplandor, un cuerpo bailando – ¡Comienza Daddy Cool! JAMAICA: Pearl se despide de sus amigos. Junto a

su hijo Sunny, de diez años de edad, se va a emigrar a Inglaterra. Todos cantan “Holiday”.

RASPUTIN: Eveline Baker se entera por Benny de que su amiga Rose (que es hija de Eveline) últimamente muestra mucho interés por un joven llamado Sunny. Eveline prohíbe a su hija cantar en el grupo de Sunny. CLUB

la mejor amiga de la familia. El joven Sunny está jugando fuera, donde conoce a la pequeña Rose.

Entretanto, Pearl confiesa a Lela que sigue añorando a su antiguo amante, Daddy Cool, y que éste es el padre de su hijo Sunny. A Sunny nunca se lo ha contado (“Got a Man on my Mind”) … y Daddy Cool ya no vive.

15 AÑOS MÁS TARDE: Una celebración navi-

FIESTA SORPRESA PARA SUNNY: De re-

LONDRES: Pearl y su hijo viven con la simpática Lela,

deña en una iglesia. Para Pearl y para Sunny (que ahora tiene 25 años) cantar “Mary’s Boy Child” en esta ceremonia siempre ha sido algo muy especial. Durante la misa Sunny demuestra por primera vez sus habilidades como bailarín. ¡Es el día de su cumpleaños! SALA DE ENSAYO: Sunny baila con su grupo

(“Sunshine”). Están ensayando para ganar el concurso de baile de ese año. Pero Benny y su grupo (“Thunder”) los echan de la sala. Se entabla un primer duelo entre bailarines al son de “Let all be Music”.

Delante del local de ensayo, Sunny se reencuentra con Rose. Hace quince años que no se han visto. Rose está deseando cantar, así que Sunny le pide que sea la cantante de su grupo (“One Way Ticket”).

pente, Rose se encuentra rodeada de los amigos de Sunny, que celebran su cumpleaños cantando y bailando (“Brown Girl in the Ring”). De pronto, frente a la iglesia aparece Eveline Baker, que en su día le quitó a Pearl su amante (“Daddy Cool”). Eveline intenta alejar a Pearl y a Sunny de su hija Rose. Benny sorprende a Rose cuando ensaya con el grupo “Sunshine”, monta en cólera y le golpea. El grupo le defiende y por primera vez entonan juntos “Sweet Dreams”. ¡Es un éxito! Esto pone furiosa a Eveline Baker, mientras que Pearl observa preocupada cómo la amistad (¿o es algo más?) entre Rose y Sunny se va haciendo más fuerte (“Baby don’t forget my Number”).


DESCANSO CLUB RASPUTIN: Todos cantan y bailan mientras

esperan a que empiece el concurso de baile.

Eveline dice a Sunny que puede amañar el concurso si él, a cambio, renuncia a Rose. Entretanto, la iglesia ha sido clausurada porque está demasiado vieja y amenaza ruina. Los parroquianos congregados frente a la iglesia se lamentan por la pérdida de su “hogar” (“Rivers of Babylon”). Pearl y Lela diseñan un plan para salvar la iglesia. Sunny pide a su madre que le cuente la verdad sobre su padre, al que nunca llegó a conocer. Finalmente, Pearl le relata cómo abandonó Londres embarazada del bailarín Daddy Cool. Le enseña una tarjeta que, hace muchos años le escribió por su cumpleaños. Sunny se enfada y sale corriendo, dejando a Pearl sola con sus recuerdos (“I can’t stand the Rain”). Sunny cuenta a Rose lo que acaba de averiguar sobre su padre, el hombre que crió a Rose y que junto con Eveline Baker estuvo al frente del Club Rasputin. Sumidos en la confusión, los jóvenes ponen fin a su relación (“When I die”). Entretanto, Pearl y Lela organizan una fiesta callejera para salvar la iglesia (“Calendar Song”).

Suny y su grupo se desesperan ante la ausencia de Rose. Tampoco Benny sabe cómo continuar sin ella (“Blame it on the Rain”). Rose sospecha que su madre le oculta parte de su pasado. Descubre el testamento de Daddy Cool, donde dice que el Club Rasputin pasará a pertenecer a Sunny si algún día regresa a Londres. Eveline sabe que está a punto de perder todo aquello por lo ha estado luchando toda su vida. EL CONCURSO DE BAILE: Benny y su grupo

“Thunder” hacen una actuación fantástica. En comparación con ellos, el grupo de Sunny parece abatido y falto de inspiración. Hasta que de pronto aparece Rose. ¡Ha vuelto!
