The Sons of Pitches shot to fame in November 2015 when they were crowned winners of the BBC2 singing contest The Naked Choir, hosted by Gareth Malone, as their combination of soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and stunning beatboxing – mixed with a large dose of comedy – captivated the viewing public’s imagination.
With a programme of inventive pop covers, original numbers and entertaining improvised songs, the Sons of Pitches have performed at both public and private engagements with previous clients including Microsoft, Sky, ASOS, Nokia and the NFL, and headline performances on The London Eye, Hampton Court, the NEC Birmingham, Vale Fest, Greenwich Festival and international events in Hong Kong, Austria, Spain and the USA, together with a sell-out debut run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In addition, ‘The Sons’ completed three hugely successful headline UK tours throughout 2016 and 2017, performing 72 shows to over 60,000 fans. Most recently, the Sons of Pitches starred as the house band on Sky1’s TV entertainment series Sing: Ultimate A Cappella, presented by Cat Deeley, who posted a picture of her with the band with the caption “My favourite guys in the whole wide world.”
