The Korgis burst onto the scene from the remnants of Stackridge in 1979 with the hit song ‘If I Had You’. This was followed in 1980 by the worldwide classic ‘Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime’. There have been over 150 versions, including dance mixes, and even a version by Beck that appeared in the multi award-winning film, ‘The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’. The hits and favourites carry on with ‘Dumb Waiters,’ ‘If It’s Alright With You Baby’, ‘All the Love in the World and many more.
The Korgis in Top Of The Pops
Returning back to where it all started in Bath all those years ago, The Korgis are celebrating 40 years of quirky hits, catchy melodies and hi-jinx!
Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime
BUT THERE IS MORE! The Korgis have a new album called Cartoon World. After the time we have just been through, there is movement for real change. This album – perhaps even this CONCEPT ALBUM! – was inspired by that need for change. The two songs that sum it up are perhaps the new Beatle-esque anthem for our times ‘Bringing Back The Spirit Of Love’, and the heart-wrenching ‘Best Thing You Can Do Is To Love Someone’. We will certainly be playing those ones!

To make our journey into new territory complete we will be premiering our new Quadraphonic sound setup! Remember Dark Side Of The Moon?! Anyone lucky enough to see that tour will know how effective it can be.
The Korgis are led by original singer James Warren, and include vocalist John Baker and guitarist Al Steele from the 1990’s Korgis touring band. Keyboard ace Nigel Hart and powerhouse drummer Paul Smith make up the rhythm section, plus ‘Born To Win’ provide brilliant backing vocals and bring a vibrant energy to each performance.
James and the band have worked hard at creating a show that is both musically and visually exciting.
Live in Cardiff
Going back to the earliest Stackridge material, through all the Korgis hits and favourites plus excellent new songs, the Forty Years Of The Korgis show has elicited comments such as ‘flawless musicianship’ and ‘breath-taking musicality’.
Come along and witness The Korgis at their finest, with an outstanding 8-piece band, and a Poptastic show not to be missed!
