A BLEND of three-part harmonies mixed in with keyboards, guitar and percussion provide the soulful sound for which GEN-R-8 , one of Newcastle's finest vocal acts, is acclaimed.

The trio comprises the talents of YIANNI MORATIDIS, PEDRO VIRGIL and GEORGE MORATIDIS .

Each member brings a style and strength that complements the other and provides the audience with something d ferent to the usual trio.

Yianni Moratidis was with local trio D.T.Y and then with Virgil in another successful trio THREE 27, who recently toured the UK and also supported VANESSA AMOROSSI on her national tour.

The pair have released many CDs including the hit single Trust In Me.

Now they have honed a high- impact show and combined it with the talents of George Moratidis, who was with the Latino trio SMOOTH.

Since forming earlier this year, Gen-R-8 has perfected its sound with regular performances around the club scene in Sydney and Newcastle.

The trio delivers a repertoire of soulful funk, rock and r'n'b from great artists like STEVIE WONDER, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, RICKY MARTIN, MATCHBOX 20 and VAN MORRISON.
