Review: The Overtones at Christmas @ Sage Gateshead

When I heard that The Overtones were launching their Christmas Party at Gateshead, I knew I was going to be in for a festive treat.

Dedicated fans aka ‘toners’ will know that there has been a lot of changes in the band- including a new member, Jay James. Jay has known the band for many years so it was a natural progression to come into the band. And it looked like he had been with the guys for years.

As soon as the guys sang their first song from their new Chrismas EP- Christmas, the audience was up on their feet, singing and dancing.  There was a strong sense of family/fans support with The Overtones, as I said they have been through a lot and to have their support meant a lot to them.

It was nice to see that their charm and charisma has not changed, in fact, it felt like there were new energy and pace to the band. Jay’s voice adds a new layer and sound, it just melts into the harmonies, they are sounding on point.

I particularly enjoyed their version of Walking In The Air, not what I was expecting but still classic Overtones with a breathtaking musical accompaniment.  I was blown away by this performance.

Speaking of classic Overtones, boy do they know how to move. They have some serious microphonology, yea it is not just stepping click any more oh no.  These lads know how to entertain a crowd with their sway hipping moves.

In 2018 the group released their sixth album ‘The Overtones’, the accompanying sold-out UK tour took their trademark sense of celebration and party on the road with the group living up to the promise of “a night to remember”. That’s the tradition they come from and they’re certainly not about to stop now.
