A RATHER unusual group makes its debut in the Thames Valley next weekend.
Naturally 7 is an a cappella group who have just completed a world tour as special guests of Michael Bublé on his Crazy Love tour.
The origins of the group date back to New York in 1999 when Manchester-born Roger Thomas started the group with his brother, Warren, and five other talented singers they had come to know over the years from singing around the city.
Having been in and out of several traditional male groups over the years, Roger developed an affinity for a cappella sounds and a unique ability to create distinct harmony arrangements. When invited to sing at a major a cappella competition in New York, they won the competition, moved on to the nationals and took away two more wins.
Riding the wave of this newfound success and still unable to decide if Naturally 7 were going to be an a cappella group or a traditional band, Roger had a novel idea: they could be both.
