Charlotte Day has been a professional singer for almost twenty years. Her voice can be heard on numerous top 40 records from the likes of Danni Minogue, Loleatta Holloway, and Faith Hill to name a few! As a member of chart topping dance groups Soda Club and Love To Infinity, she has had international success as a vocalist, songwriter and producer and has performed alongside many famous names within the music industry.
With Charlotte's unmistakably rich and sultry tones combined with Aidan's exceptional musical talent they faithfully recreate the memorable and classic sounds of Richard and Karen Carpenter.
After many successful performances at theatres and outdoor venues across the country, Aidan and Charlotte have decided to offer their live show of 'Yesterday Once More - a Tribute to The Carpenters', to smaller audiences.
The show is available as 2 x 45 minute or 1 x 60 minute performances with the highest quality backing music accompaniment.
Alternatively, Aidan and Charlotte can tailor their show for larger events by providing additional musicians, ranging from a compact four piece band, to a full orchestra with string section.
Whatever the occasion they can deliver!
"While one of the main reasons for the sustained commercial success of The Carpenters was that Karen Carpenter's incredible voice was uniquely warm and irresistible, without Richard Carpenter's undeniable genius as producer, arranger, decision-maker, and songwriter, it simply wouldn't have happened at all, and this is no exaggeration." (Excerpt from Carpenters Gold)
