Performance date and time
Saturday, 5th October 2019
The Goons in harmony, this totally off-the-end-of-the-pier male vocal four-piece mixes deadpan comedy, lively repartee and sophisticated, massively melodic a cappella classics (from Billy Joel and Marvin Gaye to Rodgers & Hammerstein and Tom Jones) with unexpected, charming and very funny results. Great vibes, fabulous voices, dubious suits; a seriously silly, thoroughly enjoyable evening of top entertainment. _________________________________________________________________
Move over The King's Singers, this funny and warm comedy à cappella male vocal quartet talk unfathomable rubbish and sing charmingly quirky, exquisitely harmonious treatments of Billy Joel, Lou Reed, Marvin Gaye, Joe Jackson, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Stills, Tom Jones, The Beach Boys and more. Featuring members of The Singing Sous' Chefs (UK), The Spooky Men's Chorale (Australia) and Mumbo-Jumbo, this feast of entertaining music, comedy, contemporary topical comment, highly interactive flights of fancy, wit and banter is a really great, very funny night out. 'Witty chat and lovely, uplifting music.' BBC Radio 5 Live Men's Hour 'Extremely funny and massively melodic à cappella-cum-theatre.' The Spectator 'A cross between Coope, Boyes & Simpson and The New Rope String Band!' Karen Tweed (Kathryn Tickell Band) 'Life enriching musicality.' Rod Clements, Lindisfarne
