Hit doo-wop group plans return concert
DOO-wop close harmony group The Overtones are set to return to Bristol as part of their UK tour.
The platinum-selling five-piece group, that includes Bedminster man Mike Crawshaw, shot to fame after being discovered while they were working as decorators and singing on a tea break.
With four members originally – Mark Franks, Mr Crawshaw, Darren Everest and Timmy Matley – the band had been performing for several years. The four all shared an interest in the doo-wop genre of the 1950s mixed with R&B and modern pop music.
Later, they met Lachie Chapman, discovered similar tastes in music and reformed themselves as a five-piece band. Mr Everest then had the idea of starting a painting and decorating company so that the five could practice together while working. It was while painting a shop near Oxford Street in London that the band were discovered by a talent scout.
