THE MAGNETS – a stunning live vocal music act that performs throughout the world.
By combining harmony vocals with beatbox drumming they have taken a capella music to a whole new audience and created a sound rivalling that of any band with instruments. in fact, THE MAGNETS have an advantage over any conventional band in that they can perform anytime, anywhere there is space for five men to stand and sing. From street corner to arena, just add an audience and let the party begin.
From early beginnings busking in Covent Garden THE MAGNETS turned professional on signing to the EMI label in 2000. Subsequently the group have toured the world, released three albums and produced a series of a capella theatre shows.
Career highlights include tours with Tom Jones and Michael Ball, appearances on TV shows such as Parkinson, BBC Proms in the Park,GMTV, and performances at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall,Birmingham Symphony Hall, and at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Jubilee Concert. In demand for private events large and small, THE MAGNETS have found themselves singing everywhere from official functions for world leaders to numerous charity events and even in Elle Macpherson’s living room.
Every performance by THE MAGNETS is an exhibition of musical sophistication and showmanship, expertly tailored to the needs of the occasion and venue. The band can choose from a wide repertoire of pop, rock and soul hits ranging from the classic such as The Beatles, The Police, The Jackson 5, to the modern including The Scissor Sisters, Mika and Franz Ferdinand. Added to this is a stylishly choreographed show spiced with humour, audience participation and one incredible vocal drum solo.
Always pushing the boundaries of what is expected of a vocal group, THE MAGNETS use a capella to take an alternative view of music, and their recent theatre shows have featured surprising versions of songs as diverse as Love Will Tear Us Apartby Joy Division and Bon Jovi’s Living On A Prayer, alongside the group’s own award-winning compositions.
