The Southmartins have carved themselves a unique niche in the tribute scene since forming in late 2009. Playing fast and loose with the back catalogues of the Housemartins and the Beautiful South (and the occasional foray into Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott’s more recent hits) the band manage to not only being the sound of these hugely successful British bands to their shows but also pull of the neat trick of making many of the sings their own with energetic, soulful interpretations and playful arrangements. Very much a band to involve the audience along the way, expect a great big singalong to classic hits such as Happy Hour, Good as Gold, Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Caravan of Love and many more. With a voice as close as you could hope for to Mr Heaton himself in lead singer Andy (Paul says “They’re really good”) and a super-tight band have honed their shows at increasingly large music venues across he UK including playing several times ta Paul Heaton’s Kings Arms in Salford.
