London, Jan 10 (Agencies): The original three female singers of the 70s hit disco band Boney M reunited after 24 years in Amsterdam to pay tribute to late bandmate Bobby Farrell.

 The 61-year-old was the sole male singer in the band and was found dead in a Russian hotel room about a week back.

 "We will miss you, your dance moves. Without Bobby, there is no Boney M," said Liz Mitchell, Maizie Williams and Marcia Barret after taking the stage near the flower covered coffin.

 American soul singer, George McCrae of the 1974 single Rock Your Baby' fame also performed. Russian investigators said heart disease was the cause of death.

 "It was not a suspicious death. Heart disease was the cause," said Sergei Kapitanov, representative of St Petersburg's branch of Russia's investigative committee.

 The band's hits include 'Daddy Cool', 'Ma Baker' and 'Rasputin'. Their 'Brown Girl in the Ring' and 'Daddy Cool' released in 1978 was the biggest selling single of that year.

It still remains the sixth biggest selling single of all time in Britain.
