In the 90’s East 17 was one of the biggest bands in the UK and sold 18 million records worldwide! They achieved 18 Top 20 Singles and 4 Top 10 Albums in the UK and had over 30 Number 1 singles in many different countries with the top hit “STAY ANOTHER DAY”!
East 17 took their name from their Walthamstow postcode where they formed in 1991, the line-up originally consisting of John Hendy, Terry Coldwell, Brian Harvey and Tony Mortimer.
Their shaved heads and tattoo style gave them an edgier more street look than their rivals ‘Take That’; their style, a mix between pop and hip hop lyrics reflected a much cooler image.
East 17 achieved 12 Top Ten hits on the UK singles chart between 1992 and 1998 and their debut album 'Walthamstow' shot straight to No.1 in the UK Album Charts. This album contained a string of Top 20 singles including: "House of Love", "Deep", "It's Alright", "Let It Rain".
The band's second album 'Steam' featured their best-selling hit "Stay Another Day" which remained No.1 in the UK for five weeks and was the 1994 Christmas Number 1! East 17 are the ideal headline attraction for Christmas Light Switch On Events!
The band went on to release 3 more albums, "Up All Night", "Resurrection" and "Dark Light".
Brian Harvey and Tony Mortimer left the group in 1997 and although they have had a few come-back reunions they are no longer with the current line-up which still features John Hendy and Terry Coldwell. Robbie Craig joined East 17 in early 2014 and East 17 are gaining momentum again with a number of tours scheduled.
