They write their own material, play various instruments, dance and put together their own style. They have a right laugh – as they say in Manchester – while they’re doing it too.
Introducing Cian Gleeson (20), from Bolton, Joel Healey (19) from Swinton, Sonny Hardman (18) from Atherton, Lewis Maxwell (17) from Maghull and Jake Donlan (20) from Colne in Lancashire.
The band’s mentor is Take That’s former manager Nigel Martin Smith who predicts the phenomenal success for Yes Lad that Gary Barlow and the boys enjoyed.
He said: “We’ve had three different line-ups and it’s taken four years to get Yes Lad where I want them to be, but they’re now ready and raring to go. Expect to see a lot of them in the near future.
“They’re a great bunch of lads with a lot of talent and versatility. They live for music and they’re prepared to work hard to get the success they deserve.”
