After taking the roof off Middlesbrough Town Hall in November, the Southmartins make their debut in Yarm – and we know they’ll be hitting another Perfect 10.
Formed in 2009, they are pretty much the biggest band to have come out of Teesside. If you’re after an uplifting, feel good show, you’ve come to the right place.
Playing fast and loose with the back catalogues of the Housemartins and the Beautiful South (and the occasional foray into Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott’s more recent hits) they manage to not only bring the sound of these two hugely successful British bands to their shows but also pull off the neat trick of making many of the songs their own with energetic, soulful interpretations and playful arrangements.
Both standing and seated tickets are on sale for an all singing, all dancing evening of classic hits such as Happy Hour, Good as Gold, Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Caravan of Love and many more.
With a voice as close as you could hope for to Mr Heaton himself in lead singer Andy (Paul says “They’re really good”) and a super-tight band the band have honed their shows at increasingly large music venues across the UK including playing several times at Paul Heaton’s Kings Arms in Salford.
