The Overtones

Vocal Group

The talented four-piece, comprised of seasoned musicians Mark Franks, Darren Everest, Jay James and Mike Crawshaw, The Overtones deliver a perfect mixture of nostalgia and originality at all events they attend. Delivering show stopping performances with their feel-good style, The Overtones are one of the UK’s most in-demand live acts.

In 2021, The Overtones announced their anniversary album, ’10’, which achieved the group their first Official Charts UK Number 1 Independent Album, and in 2022 they toured with their ’10th Anniversary’ celebration throughout May and June. Having formerly performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace and sang to over one million people at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, it comes as no surprise that The Overtones are one of the most highly sought-after harmony groups in the UK and worldwide.

Their debut album, ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Love’, reached #4 in the charts, leading to a stream of equally successful releases, like ‘Sweet Soul Music’ and their festive special ‘Good Ol’ Fashioned Christmas’. Joining forces with The Entertainment, the quintet toured in 2016, before embarking on the ‘Christmas with The Overtones Tour’.

The Overtones have worked with leading celebrities like Peter Andre, appeared on programmes like This Morning, and are regulars at large events, like Leicester’s legendary firework display. No strangers to the screen, The Overtones have also performed on Britain’s Got Talent and Dancing on Ice in 2011, and starred as guests on The Xtra Factor. Most recently, The Overtones have earned music placement on Sky Cinema’s ‘Monster Family 2’ and on the Sky Sports Football Premiership Season advert. They have also collaborated with Qatar Airlines for the 2022 World Cup, with their hit song Celebration. Their song ‘Celebration’ also featured as the official soundtrack to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Parade, and they have recently toured with music legends Michael Ball and Alfie Boe.

With five Top 10 albums, multi-platinum record sales and 11 sell-out tours to their name, The Overtones are the go-to party band for corporate events and festivals. Having headlined prestigious venues, including The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall, The Overtones are renowned for their exquisite vocals, show stopping harmonies and charming distinctive style. Their setlist includes a decade of popular soul, doo-wop and pop hits, ensuring that audiences of all ages enjoy the “feel good” atmosphere this band supplies. Perfect for both large scale events and intimate gatherings, The Overtones “celebrate the past, dance in the present and sing for the future”, making them an outstanding entertainment act.
