The venue’s grand interior and esteemed history provided the perfect stage for the boys to show exactly what kind of performers they are.
They had a magnetic stage presence and their musical talents could be clearly seen. There seemed to be an intuitive understanding of pace and volume and the band worked together to ensure their close harmonies did not stray away from one another. They were commanding and yet not overbearing, and the audience were left knowing just how strong the vocals were, both in tone and control – it was a truly wonderful performance.
The bands frontman, Henry Parker, has been building up to this since his early teens when he began to cultivate his songwriting talent and general musicianship. He has been taken under the wing of British Producer Mike Hurst and has befriended one of the queens of Country music Margo Price, and the boys also managed to catch Beyonce’s attention when she heard them record their album in LA.

The 27 have spent the past few years writing and producing new music and are now ready to show the world what they have been up to. Starting with the promise of new music in February, and live dates planned for early this year let’s see what 2019 has in store for The 27…
