40 Years of The Korgis - Go East!
The Korgis burst onto the scene from the remnants of Stackridge in 1979 with the hit song ‘If I Had You’. This was followed in 1980 by the worldwide classic ‘Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime’. There have been over 150 versions, including dance mixes, and even a version by Beck that appeared in the multi award-winning film, ‘The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’. The hits and favourites carry on with ‘Dumb Waiters,’ ‘If It’s Alright With You Baby’, ‘All the Love in the World and many more. In 2020 The Korgis are celebrating 40 years of quirky hits, catchy melodies and hi-jinx! They are led by original singer James Warren, and include vocalist John Baker and guitarist Al Steele from the 1990’s Korgis touring band. Keyboard ace Nigel Hart and powerhouse drummer Paul Smith make up the rhythm section and ‘Born To Win’ provide brilliant backing vocals and bring a vibrant energy to each performance. James and the band have worked hard at creating a show that is both musically and visually exciting. Going back to the earliest Stackridge material, through all the Korgis hits and favourites plus excellent new songs, the 2019 show has elicited comments such as ‘flawless musicianship’ and ‘breath-taking musicality’. Come along and witness The Korgis at their finest, with an outstanding 8-piece band, and a Poptastic show not to be missed!
