Paul Heaton says - "They're very good"
The Southmartins are a unique tribute to the songs and sound of The Beautiful South & Housemartins. Constantly gigging since early 2010 in the UK they have built up an unbeatable reputation as a live experience. With a set of classic hits and other bits to draw upon such as Song For Whoever, Don't Marry Her, Perfect 10, Happy Hour and many more they are guaranteed to make you smile, dance and sing. Rather than merely trying to recreate or reproduce the original recordings, or even live performances of the original bands, The Southmartins have always put their own stamp on the material and have led the way in how they approach paying tribute to these classic songs. This is not simple mimicry. Having said that, lead singer Andy's voice is about as close to Paul Heaton as you could hope for without it being the man himself (who has said the band are "very good") and with a highly skilled, and lively band they inject a huge amount of energy and soul into their shows. From pubs, clubs, music venues, festivals and private events they have proved themselves time and again and were the first such tribute to play at Paul Heaton's pub The Kings Arms in Salford as part of the launch weekend for his top 3 album with Jacqui Abbott, which they sold out in two days, prompting an immediate re-booking. Fully booked for 2015 and with gigs booked across England, Scotland and Wales in 2016 you've got no excuse to miss out (although shows regularly sell out in advance so book early!)
