A Leicester band have their sights set on success following recent performances for BBC Introducing Midlands.

Harri Georgio & The Well Behaved Young Men have an upcoming gig at the Soundhouse, Leicester, on Saturday, December 21, where they are headlining for other artists at HQ Recording.

“We’ve got people making blogs about us,” said the band’s drummer Richard Thornton.

“We’ve hit over 2k in 2 days and had amazing feedback and online reviews.”

The HQ Recording artists were approached by BBC Leicester as part of the Under The Covers series in which they covered Engelbert Humperdinck’s ‘Release Me’.

Humperdinck has publicly praised this cover, posting on his Instagram story: ‘I’ll never let you go “Release Me” – but I love this version and the story behind it.’

As a result of the success of this cover, the band are booked to perform at Reading and Leeds Festival next year on the BBC Introducing stage, which will be their biggest performance to date.

“We headlined a year ago at The Shed for a showcase concert which was our first gig together.”

Harri Georgio & The Well Behaved Young Men formed a year ago after meeting at a bar, and since then have played multiple events such as the Peaky Blinders Festival and also at De Montfort Hall.

The musicians have ‘big plans for 2020’ but are not able to release information yet about this.

The Leicester band consists of singer Harri Georgio, guitarist Matt Bury, drummer Richard Thornton and bassist Michal Kais.

Richard also plays drums and guitar for singer Alice Kube who is signed at HQ Recording along with Harri Georgio & The Well Behaved Young Men.

She is currently making a name for herself after having her single named track of the week earlier this year by BBC Introducing Midlands.
