About this Act

Halfway to New York are an exceptional find on the function band circuit. Their UK headline tour culminated in supporting Bruce Springsteen at Hyde Park and Headlining Trafalgar Square at the Paralympic Closing Ceremony. From there they went on to spend 2014 touring the US, supporting bands like Fuel and Alien Ant Farm.

Now back in the UK they have teamed up with the West-End Star, Catriana Sandison and the amazingly talented Adam Holloway on Saxophone to form a Function band like no other. Already in high demand, these guys will fill any dance floor and leave any crowd wanting more. The repertoire takes in acts such as Bruce himself, Dusty Springfield, Pherrell Williams and Daft Punk among others.

Their lead-vocalist, Sam has recorded Backing Vocals for acts such as Goldfrapp and Keith Urban as well as singing on Movie Soundtracks such as The Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the recent Warner Bros blockbuster, Pan.
