About The TestostaTones
the TestostaTones are a Doo-Wop vocal quartet available as acapella, with backing tracks or a live band. They cover traditional Doo-Wop including music for 50's events as well as contemporary songs for more modern functions.
The TestostaTones are an authentic and energetic vocal Doo-Wop quartet who grew up listening to recordings of The Ink Spots, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, The Marcels and the Penguins among others and were “Transported to a magical musical era of storytelling vocal musicians in complete control of their craft that seemed to have passed our generation”. As a result of a love of these harmonies, they were inspired to go on to emulate the style and performed their own arrangement of “Sh-Boom” at a concert at The Theatre Royal, Norwich. After the show, they were approached by two entertainment agencies who asked if they would take professional bookings. The group have never looked back and have been described as “The missing track from a Scorcese movie soundtrack”. The group is made up of a collective who all have impressive solo performances and credits to their names, including working on cruise ships, doing national theatre tours, West End credits and working with some of the top function bands in the UK across various genres, including Rock, Jazz and big band. As a quartet, they have performed at over 500 weddings and over 1,000 corporate functions at some of the most prestigious venues in the UK including The Savoy Hotel, Hampton Court Palace, Alnwick Castle (Hogwarts filming location in Harry Potter), The Royal Festival Hall, The Barbican, HMS Belfast, Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey exterior filming location), Windsor Castle, Tunnels Beaches Devon, The Shard London, King’s College Chapel Cambridge, The o2, Heathrow Airports and London department stores including: Harrods, Liberty, Selfridges, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, Fenwicks, Fortnum and Mason and John Lewis Oxford Street. They have been booked to entertain prestigious brands including: Mondelēz, Cadburys, Virgin, Ted Baker, Procter and Gamble, EAT, Reuters, AEG, Sotheby’s, Harley Davidson, Grazia Magazine, Adnams, Hilton Hotels, The Big Lottery Fund, CATerpillar, BBC Radio 2, BBC, BBC Wales, Lloyd’s Banking Group, Ernst & Young LLP, Lush Cosmetics, Estee Lauder and Jo Malone among others. The TestostaTones currently mix their time between performing at weddings, festivals, the 50’s circuit and for corporate events and exhibitions where they also provide jingles and songwriting services. They are still as passionate about making their own vocal harmony music as they were when they first played a Crew Cuts record and they enjoy, with equal measure, performing acapella at a small and intimate wedding with or without amplification as they are being the feature performance onstage at a large function using backing tracks or with their live band. They have recently sung for the Queen at Royal Ascot, Elton John and Arnold Schwarzenegger (but not at the same time!) and were the subject of an exclusive 30 minute documentary about Doo-Wop on The Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2 where they sung live and were interviewed about the genre.
