Since 2007, award-winning a cappella sensation In the Smoke has been bringing the cream of London’s vocal talent to audiences across the capital and beyond.

All of In the Smoke‘s repertoire is arranged specially for the group by our members, making the most of our unique versatility and talents.

Our members have sung with groups like Out of the Blue, Fitz Barbershop, The AlleycatsThe Oxford BellesIn the Pink and The Techtonics; we boast among our ranks choral scholars, opera singers, madrigal enthusiasts and singer-songwriters; and our day jobs range from teachers, doctors, scientists and lawyers to arts and media specialists, engineers and environmental consultants.

In the Smoke

In the Smoke can belt out classics as well as any a cappella group – but nowhere else will you find our blend of great songs you know and great songs you don’t.

And we won’t just stand and sing at you – from our notorious TV advert sketches and high-speed Disney medley (which crams 50 tunes into four minutes…) to our now annual a-ca-pantos, an In the Smoke performance is one smokin’ hell of a show.
