A LARGS musician and his band have been offer a spot on Olly Murs upcoming tour after wowed The Voice UK judges.

Drummer Iain Mcfarlane, 26, had gone to the blind auditions to support fellow Brown Sugar member Stefan Mahendra.

After Stefan's rendition of Childish Gambino's 'Redbone' saw two judges turn, Will.I.Am then invited Iain and the band on stage to play.

The band's performance had the audience rocking and got the judges out of their seats to dance.

Both Olly Murs and Jennifer Hudson had already turned for Stefan - with Olly eventually triumphing by offering the band a spot on his tour!

The former Largs Academy pupil said: "We just went to support Stefan at his blind audition and had no idea we were going to end up playing.

"It was amazing. One of the judges asked him who he was with and when he said he was with his band, we got asked out and asked to perform.

"It was a completely surreal moment.

"We had a little debate on stage about what we were going to play and settled on ‘Crazy’ by Gnarls Barkley

"I’m just really happy they showed the clip on TV, it has been really great exposure for the band.

"Hopefully Olly follows through with that support slot on his tour, that would really be be the icing on the cake for an already amazing experience."

The video of their performance has now racked up 400,000 views on YouTube.

Iain co-founded the band, named after a Rolling Stones song, when the guys met in first year of college in London four years ago.

They caught the eye gigging in pubs and bars before being booked by bigger clubs and events around the city.

However it was in Largs that Iain's love for music was born - and he says his old school has helped him hit the high notes.

He said: "I started playing drums when I was about 12, and was encouraged at Largs Academy thanks to the great music department, led by Craig Smith and Caroline Shedden.

"They gave me a lot of opportunities and Craig was always putting on shows and gigs for the students. It was really helpful for young musicians like me.

"That foundation gave me the confidence to move to London and properly pursue music."

Now at the the British and Irish Modern Music Institute in the capital, Iain says he is 'looking forward to that call from Olly'.
