Chichester-based rock band Sabio carry on

DESPITE an earlier announcement that their appearance at Devon's Cross Rhythms Festival in July was to be their final concert, Chichester-based pop rock band Sabio have decided to continue, though with a new name and working exclusively in the mainstream. Now to be called Oversol and with a new drummer Nathan Evans (previously with the band Steve) the group are now planning some mainstream showcases.

The group, fronted by singer Aaron Frith, have a complex history. Originally called Fruit, they gained considerable popularity on the Christian circuit before signing with secular management and being renamed Sabio. However, the group failed to land a mainstream recording contract and after dumping their management released the critically acclaimed independent album 'Escape' in 2002. CR
