For a flavour of the flawless famous five – vocal harmony group The Overtones – ahead of the release of their new album on November 4th – book to see the silky-smooth charmers on Saturday October 5th at the Villa Marina.
The concert is in aid of Junior Achievement Isle of Man and will see Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw, Darren Everest, Timmy Matley and Lachie Chapman performing classic present-day British pop with their customary potent mix of good looks, great vocals and effortless style.
And then, on November 4th, The Overtones release ‘Saturday Night At The Movies’, a celebration of some of the most loved songs in cinematic history, including reinvigorated versions of numbers from Grease, Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, Cocktail and The Jungle Book.
The album also features three of the band’s own new compositions, ‘Miss Hollywood’, ‘All About You’ and ‘Superstar’.
The Overtones landed a surprise hit with their debut album ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’ released towards the end of 2012 which peaked at number four which they followed with last year’s ‘Higher’ which entered the charts at number six. The group performed in front of 250,000 people at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert, appeared at the Festival of Remembrance and in Hyde Park, London for festival shows BT London Live in 2012 and British Summer Time this year.
The Overtones’ biggest headline shows have been at the London Palladium and the Hammersmith Apollo. Their successful UK and Ireland tour in support of ‘Higher’ featured 27 shows stretching from Aberdeen to Plymouth via Dublin. Word of their talents is also spreading internationally following shows in Europe and South Africa, as well as the emergence of local fan clubs in Brazil, Japan, USA, Argentina and Indonesia.
