‘The Valli’s’ are branched from the ‘Kristian Thomas Company;’ a performing arts company based in the East Midlands who produce shows, concerts, classes and many more. Creative Director and Valli’s vocalist, Kristian Cunningham, knew the other three guys from different backgrounds and groups. Having performed with Tom Hopcroft, and being a very close friend for many years, Kristian knew Tom was perfect for the group. George Groom & Duncan Leech came from the ‘KTCo’ itself, as two of the most talented vocalists the company held and Kristian knew that these two guys would complete the four piece perfectly with Duncan’s charm & George’s bass qualities. Having come together in December 2016 with an initial meeting and all the boys on board, they went into rehearsals ready for their launch in April 2017.
