The Sons of Pitches are a multi-award winning British vocal group combining soaring solos, impeccable harmonies and sensational beatboxing to stunning effect. In 2015, they became the first winners of BBC2’s The Naked Choir hosted by Gareth Malone.
With over two million YouTube hits and a growing international reputation, The Sons, have “given a cappella a kick up the backside”.
Since their formation in 2010, the group, which is made up of Joe Novelli, Joe Hinds, Jamie Hughes, Joe Belham, Josh Mallett and Midé Naike have captivated audiences with highly creative vocal gymnastics and a programme of inventive pop covers, original numbers and entertaining improvised songs.

With over 35,000 people turning up to the concerts and most being sell-outs, the tour was a storming success. Particular highlights included packing out the Union Chapel, Islington and prestigious venues such as TheSage, Gateshead and The Lowry, Salford.
In June & July they completed their 3rd UK National tour comprising 32-date UK tour throughout June and July.
