Barrow boys join top pop outfits
Last updated at 12:38, Friday, 01 August 2014
BARROW’S own pop opera group Voce are preparing for an opportunity of a lifetime, when they line up alongside a host of Britain’s Got Talent stars next month.
The Furness four-piece have been handpicked by organisers of music show Lytham Live! as support to the hit ITV talent show’s reigning champions Collabro, fellow winner Jai McDowell and this year’s runner-up Lucy Kay, as well as Brit Award Winner Denise Pearson.
The concert on Saturday August 23 is by far Voce’s biggest show to date, and Mark Johnson from the band is looking forward to the experience.
He said: “We feel so privileged to have been asked to represent the local area and sing at Lytham Live! It’s such a beautiful venue. They are expecting the outdoor concert to be a sellout, so if you are interested, get your tickets ordered quickly.”
Since forming for a charity event around six years ago, Voce have gone on to become one of Barrow’s best-loved live acts and in the past year headlined three fundraising concerts for the town Mayor.
Completed by Phil McIntosh, Iain Nicholson and Chris Warby, the quartet have played a number of high-profile local events, but nothing on this scale, supporting nationally-renowned and award-winning acts.
Collabro won the eighth series of Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year, and signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Music to release their debut album, due out today.
This year Lytham Live! takes place at Blackpool North Pier Theatre over two days. Tickets can be booked from the Lancaster Grand Theatre box office on 01524 6469501524 64695. Prices range from £20 for general admission to £65 for VIP, with proceeds going to the North West Air Ambulance.

Have your say
His name is McDowall. Jai McDowall. With an 'A' not and 'E'. He'll blow Collabro off the stage all by himself. ;-)A little respect is all we ask.
