Instead, these five young men—Jonah Marais, Corbyn Besson, Daniel Seavey, Jack Avery, and Zach Herron—have forged ahead at warp speed. In under two years, they innovatively amassed a diehard fan base through grassroots engagement in the digital arena fuelled by a prolific outpouring of new music, constant social media engagement, and sold-out cross country tours where online “likes” materialised I.R.L. into millions of screaming fans worldwide.
Prior to coming together, each member stood out as a performer in his own right. Jonah and Corbyn often livestreamed in-home performances to massive audiences as Zach served up viral covers that generated tens of millions of views. Jack built a growing a subscriber base on YouTube, and Daniel etched a space in the hearts of viewers everywhere on American Idol. They crossed paths during tours and fan engagements in the midst of these burgeoning solo careers.
Soon, they found themselves on a group text where the idea of joining forces came up. Their collective response: “Why don’t we?”
Drawing on their respective talents and formidable followings, the group emerged as a phenomenon. Beyond generating over 300 million YouTube views and 200 million Spotify streams during that period, the quintet released five EPs—Only The Beginning, Something Different, Why Don’t We Just, Invitation, and A Why Don’t We Christmas.
The Alexandra was built in 1901 by William Coutts and was originally called the Lyceum. The theatre is home to first class entertainment and has welcomed productions such as Doctor Dolittle, starring Phillip Schofield and the sell-out version of Peter Pan with Joe Pasquale. This stunning theatre was recently relaunched as The Alexandra following a £650,000 refurbishment.
