The Overtones at Cambridge Corn Exchange

A short video heralded the arrival of The Overtones with their band on stage at the Corn Exchange, rattling straight in to the Womack and Womack hit Teardrops. This was the start of a two hour set of dance and doo-wop. This wasn’t your traditional Christmas concert, this was a Christmas party. By the second song, the audience were on their feet dancing and singing along and the party had well and truly started.

For those of you unfamiliar with the band, The Overtones are a four-piece vocal harmony group, now on their sixth album. There’s a cheekiness and charm to their songs. The choreography is slick, stylish and full of energy. We are talking old School, 1950’s style charm. The audience lapped it up and these boys could do no wrong.

This tour is a tribute to band member and lead singer Timmy Matley, who sadly died unexpectedly in April. 

Ramzi kicked of the evening with an acoustic set of covers and his own songs.

If you have never seen The Overtones live then you must try and get to one of their shows, you will be in for treat and I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed
