Six-man band’s sheer Magnetism

A CAPELLA stars The Magnets promise to leave you gobsmacked when they bring their glorious harmonies and jaw-dropping beatboxing to the Platform.

A six-man sound machine, The Magnets are one of the must-see acts on the current British music scene.

At the heart of The Magnets’ music lies a gift for extraordinary arrangements that radically restyle and subvert songs from artists as diverse as Kraftwerk and Beyoncé.

Highlights of this show include a sultry Poker Face by Lady Gaga, an adrenaline-fuelled mash up of Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz and Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice, a sun-soaked Girls and Boys by Blur, and an incredible A–Z of movie themes all delivered via stunt vocals, cool moves and superb theatrics but absolutely no instruments.

The Magnets will take to the stage this Saturday (May 19) at 8pm. Tickets cost £15, and are available online at {http:// www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets|www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets}, from 01524 582803, or from Lancaster and Morecambe Visitor Information Centres.
