The Sons of Pitches
British Vocal Group
The Sons of Pitches are a multi-award winning British vocal group combining soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and sensational beatboxing to stunning effect. In 2015, they became the first winners of BBC2’s The Naked Choir hosted by Gareth Malone.
With over two million YouTube hits and a growing international reputation, The Sons, have “given a cappella a kick up the backside”.
Since their formation in 2010, the group, which is made up of Joe Novelli, Joe Hinds, Jamie Hughes, Joe Belham, Josh Mallett and Midé Naike, has captivated audiences with highly creative vocal gymnastics and a programme of inventive pop covers, original numbers and entertaining improvised songs. The group has performed at both public and private engagements with previous clients including Microsoft, Nokia and the NFL, and headline performances at the NEC Birmingham, Vale Fest and the Hong Kong International A Cappella Festival, together with a sell-out debut run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In the late Spring of 2016, The Sons embarked on their first UK Tour, playing at 27 venues from London to Edinburgh. With over 20,000 people turning up to the concerts and most being sell-outs, the tour was a storming success. Particular highlights included packing out the Union Chapel, Islington and prestigious venues such as The Sage, Gateshead and The Lowry, Salford.
Their set list ranges from Kate Bush’s haunting Wuthering Heights to the hilarious and nostalgia fuelled ‘History of UK & Irish Boybands’ medley - combined with original songs of their own and completely improvised numbers – The Sons cater to all audiences of all ages.
