Doors Open 7pm
The Overtones on at 9.30pm
The Overtones continue to reboot classic sounds for contemporary audiences. The Overtones’ three albums to date – Good Ol’ Fashioned Love (2010), Higher (2012) and Saturday Night At The Movies (2013) – established their reputation as a group with the unique ability to deliver consistently uplifting music infused with exquisitely crafted vocal harmonies.
The new album opens with the swinging title track Sweet Soul Music which was originally recorded by Arthur Conley and co-written by the legendary Otis Redding. Other album highlights include The Temptations’ sensational Get Ready, Martha & The Vandellas’ scorching Heat Wave, Marvin Gaye’s classic How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You and The Drifters Under The Boardwalk. The album also features three brand-new songs - Something Good, Giving Me Soul and Moving On. Capturing the spirit of the classics which sit seamlessly alongside them, these new songs also continue the well-established tradition of self-written Overtones’ originals such as Gambling Man, Loving The Sound and Superstar.
A consistently popular attraction at major events including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert, the Festival of Remembrance, BT London Live and British Summer Time, The Overtones’ previous three headline tours have all sold-out, the most recent of which sold the entire total of over 35,000 tickets in advance.
They’re all classic songs which ruled the airwaves. It’s been a real pleasure to take on these big songs, we’ve stretched our voices - our vocal abilities, our harmonies, our whole approach and moved into a different gear.
