Photo of the four members of the band 4th Avenue

4th Avenue chose some of the most iconic songs from a variety of genres including  swing, soul, motown and rock 'n' roll, staying true to the melody and threw in some well blended harmonies to create their own unique sound. Since then, Dougie, Adam, Dan & Tom have taken the local music scene by storm and are about to tour the UK and Europe.

Having been compared to the Overtones, you can expect amazing vocals and slick routines as they take you through some of the greatest songs in history in their own unique style!
