A new incarnation of The Beautiful South is back on a national UK tour, playing the Birmingham Hare & Hounds next month.

When great British pop institution, The Beautiful South split in 2007, most members of the band didn’t feel ready to hang up their microphones or instruments just yet.

The South are Alison Wheeler (Vocals), Gaz Birtles (Vocals), Phil Barton (Guitars), Steve Nutter (Bass), Dave Anderson (Drums), Karl Brown (Percussion), Gareth John (Trumpet), Su Robinson (Sax), Andy Price (Keys)Scott Choucino

The South feature former members of The Beautiful South including singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles.

Since original singer Dave Hemingway left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties. They still play the songs made famous by The Beautiful South and bring back the full flavour and excitement with the nine piece live band.

After a successful year of touring the country doing the theatre and festival circuit, the rejuvenated South are keeping alive all those timeless songs – A Little Time (the number one single), Perfect 10, Rotterdam, Old Red Eyes Is Back, Good as Gold, Don’t Marry Her, as well as a few choice South originals. All performed again live, these songs span an impressive 20 year career, starting way back in 1989!

Who are The South?

The South are:

Alison Wheeler (Vocals), Gaz Birtles (Vocals), Phil Barton (Guitars), Steve Nutter (Bass), Dave Anderson (Drums), Karl Brown (Percussion), Gareth John (Trumpet), Su Robinson (Sax), Andy Price (Keys).
