Club Scene with Sam Cherry

Have your say

It’s unusual for the audience to be up and dancing within the first line of a song, but the Overtones managed it at the Portsmouth Guildhall.

Timmy Matley, Mike Crawshaw, Lachie Chapman, Mark Franks and Darren Everest gave their fans a night to remember rattling through a jam-packed set of show tunes to promote their latest album Saturday Night at the Movies.

Matley demonstrated his incredibly impressive falsetto throughout the show whilst Chapman shone when taking the lead for Moon River.

The crowd went wild when the dapper gents sauntered into the audience during It Had to Be You, happily posing for photographs with their adoring fans.

The vocal harmony group impressed with their moves displaying slick choreography at all times. Shake Your Tail Feather was particularly popular with the females in the audience.

Due to popular demand, the Overtones returned for an encore sporting sequined dinner jackets and spats. Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You and Do You Love Me from Dirty Dancing drew the show to a close with rapturous applause.

A thoroughly entertaining night out from start to finish, if not a little exhausting from all the dancing and clapping!
