“This band are amazing!

They’re just the best band of their kind in the world.”

Performing at Lulu’s 60th Birthday, many musical legends were present and The Overtures coaxed several on stage to perform with the band! Two weeks after Lulu’s party Sir Elton John asked the band to support him at his New Year’s Eve show at The O2 Arena in London!

There the band performed a 40-minute set to 17,000 people in a show including Will Young.

After watching you in the Royal Court Theatre I thought your performance in the Queens Lounge could only be an anti- climax; I should have known better, you were brilliant. What a great night we had before disembarking in Rome.  Many thanks to you all.”

David Briggs

“The evening was an absolute resounding success and this was due to the fabulous music from the Overtures. I have been inundated with messages from guests raving about the band and asking when we’re planning our next party with them! Thanks for the level of professionalism and organisation — the music turned it into an event that no-one will forget for a very long time.”
