About The Spandettes:
The Spandettes are a powerful and exciting vocal trio supported by a fiercely energetic 7-piece band. Their original music combines a classic 70’s soul-boogie approach with a fresh contemporary perspective drawing inspiration from disco, funk, dance-pop, reggae, jazz and soul. Their original songs come to life with 3-piece horn arrangements, and unique vocal harmonies crafted by the leading ladies of the band, Alex Tait, Maggie Hopkins, and Lizzy Clarke.
Their sophomore album, Sequin Sunrise (Justin Abedin) was released world-wide in March of 2016 and in Japan on their Japanese label P-Vine in August 2015. With a massive fan following, their debut Japanese single charted in the top 40 throughout Japan, reaching #1 on FM Northwave in Sapporo and #10 on the legendary J Wave Tokio Hot 100. The Spandettes played 2 sold-out shows at the Billboard Live club in Tokyo in September of 2015.
