A band with a difference – young, quirky and energetic with a rock n’ roll vibe, an incredible live performance and superb vocal harmonies to match.
Originating from Wolverhampton, the four lads who are aged 18 – 20 years old, first met a few years ago and started performing together in musical youth theatre groups across the West Midlands, recent credits have included the shows Les Miserables, Oliver, Hairspray, Miss Saigon, Our House and many more.
It was during these early years that their common interest in music was born, particularly when they became aware that they shared the same source of musical inspiration – The Beatles. The Icon formed in 2015 and since that time, the band has been playing a variety of gigs at pubs, clubs, festivals, charity events and parties across several cities in England including Birmingham and Liverpool.
The band are continuing with writing their own material (songs which are very much based on the 50’s / 60’s genre) and last year released 3 singles. They have performed these live on local radio in the Midlands and on BBC Radio Merseyside to promote their appearances in festivals and also their appearance in the final of the 2018 UK Soundwaves Band competition.
