One Night Only are a Britishmarker indie rock band from Helmsleymarker, North Yorkshire formed in 2003.


One Night Only formed in summer 2003, consisting initially of Mark Hayton, Daniel Parkin(POB), Sam Ford(Gunner) and Kai Smith. The band did not have a vocalist until George Craig, a friend of Ford's brother, joined in a practice. He was asked to be the vocalist, but insisted on playing guitar as well. Smith then left the band. Contrary to some reports, they did not start out as a Beatles cover band — they initially played songs by bands such as Blink-182, New Found Glory and the Beatles, as well as some of their own material.

The name, One Night Only, came about when asked to play a gig. They did not have a name at the time and so came up with One Night Only, intending the title to, literally, last for only one night, however the name stuck to this day. They performed their first gig on 12 December 2003 in Kirkbymoorsidemarker Memorial Hall, which became a popular venue in their early days. In 2005, keyboardist Jack Sails(Fish) joined the band. The band have appeared on The Friday Night Project performing their third single "It's About Time". George Craig also appeared on Hollyoaks, performing an acoustic version of the same song.

In 2007, the band toured with Milburn and The Pigeon Detectives. Their first headline tour started in January 2008, ending in March. Their biggest headline tour to date took place in autumn 2008. They have also played at several festivals this year, including Isle of Wight, Oxegen and Glastonburymarker.

The band have done a subsequent tour, supported by northern Irish rock trio General Fiasco, Onlookers and other bands, at such venues as the Lincoln Engine Shed and The Astoriamarker.

Started a Fire (2007–2008)

"You and Me" was their debut single, released in October 2007. It failed to break into the UK Top 40 however, peaking at #46. "Just For Tonight", the second single to be released from Started a Fire, achieved better success, reaching #9 in the UK Singles Chart. The single was released in January 2008, along with the album, Started a Fire, which was recorded at RAK Studios in St John's Woodmarker, Londonmarker from August to September 2007. "It's About Time" was the third single to be released on the 28 April 2008. It failed to reach the success of "Just For Tonight", peaking at #37 in the chart. On the 7 July 2008, a fourth single, a re-release of You And Me, was released, charting at #1 for 5 weeks in the indie charts.The album was produced by Steve Lillywhite more famously known for his work with U2 having recently been asked to return to help out with their latest album No Line....

In August 2008 "You and Me" was chosen by London 2012 Olympic Committee as the song for their ["celebration" viral film].

George Craig is currently modeling for the fashion label Burberry.

Second album (2008–present)

The band is currently working on their second album which was originally due to be released in the summer of 2009 but is now looking to be released early 2010. It is likely to include new songs such as; "Intention Confidential", "A Thousand Dreams" and "Daydream" which were performed on their tour in October as well as "Live It Up" and "This Is a Hurricane" which had clips shown in a web video uploaded by them. They have said to have written over 25 new songs since releasing Started a Fire and judging on the previewed songs it appears the band are taking more of a rocky edge to their music for the upcoming album.

ONO Wednesdays

After the success of their Started A Fire tour in October 2008, the band released a video of themselves playing golf onto MySpace and YouTube. The success of this video influenced the band to release a video every Wednesday, keeping the fans informed on what the band are up to. On the Week 20 (April 1) edition of the videos, a sample of a new song, "Tonight", was used. On the Week 29 (3 June) edition, the band preview performances from a New York show for fashion label Burberry, including new songs "This Is a Hurricane" and "Live It Up" along with a short clip of the studio version of "This Is a Hurricane" at the end.
