The Overtones have firmly established themselves as the number 1 vocal harmony group. Since breaking in 2010 with their debut Good Ol’ Fashioned Love, the group has established their reputation as an act with the unique ability to deliver consistently uplifting music infused with exquisitely crafted vocal harmonies. It’s no wonder that they have sold OVER a million records and had five Top 5 albums!
Last year they released their Christmas album, Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas, accompanied by a major UK tour that had fans of all ages dancing in the aisles.
The press as well as the fans just loved it up and down the country– “It’s all about old school cool” proclaimed the Daily Record in Scotland, whilst the York Press confirmed that there was “Buckets full of Christmas cheer [with] the boys helped get me well and truly into the festive spirit” and the Bolton News observing how “everyone in the packed theatre [got] on their feet”.
Back by popular demand and quickly becoming a fixture in everyone’s Christmas party season, is the quintet’s Christmas 2016 tour. The 21 date run kicks off on 23rd November in Dunfermline, taking in cities across the country including London’s indigo at The O2 on 16th December, finishing on 22nd December in Nottingham.
Celebrating the most wonderful time of the year, with a stocking rammed full of Christmas crackers, in the shape of good ol’ classics such as ‘White Christmas’, ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ and ‘Let It Snow’, this will end a vintage year for the Darren, Mark, Mike, Lachie and Timmy.
Currently starring in a 9-week production of That’s Entertainment – a nationwide tour bringing back the hits of the 30s, 40s and 50s, The Overtones’ remain as in demand as ever! Lachie has even made his TV debut in the hit E4 comedy series, Crashing.
The Overtones are torchbearers for flat-out fantastic singing, as much as a throwback to the timeless appeal of doo-wop and Motown as they are to modern day R&B and pop. They have enjoyed a succession of major achievements, including performing in front of 250,000 people at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert, appearing at the Festival of Remembrance and hitting London’s Hyde Park for major festival shows at BT London Live and British Summer Time.
