‘The Korgis are a British pop band known for the hit singles ‘Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime’, ‘If I Had You’, ‘Dumb Waiters’, ‘If It’s alright With You Baby’ and many more.
Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime’ was a massive worldwide hit and ‘If I Had You’ is often cited as a favorite love song of all time. Add to that the George Martin produced album ‘The Man With the Bowler Hat’ by Stackridge, of which James was a founder member, and it becomes clear that the fanbase for The Korgis is huge
The band, now led by original singer/bassist James Warren (also a founding member of the 1970s band Stackridge), includes vocalist John Baker and guitarist Al Steele from the 90s Korgis. Glenn Tommey – session player with Stackridge/The Korgis – and powerhouse drummer Paul Smith make up the rhythm section and ‘Born To Win’ provide brilliant backing vocals and bring a vibrant energy to the show.
James and the band have worked hard at creating a show that is musically superb and visually exciting. The set has been designed to bring in fans from all of the eras, going back to the very first Stackridge song ever released, through all the Korgis hits and favourites, the reformed Stackridge of the 2000s as well as new material that is being compared to ‘Lennon at his finest’.
James’ meticulous attention to musical detail has elicited comments such as ‘flawless musicianship’, and ‘breathtaking musicality’.
The shows to date have drawn standing ovations at every performance.’
