In April, we will be heading up to Birmingham to take part in the Community Competition Final of the brilliant Voice Festival UK. Rehearsals are well under way – but we’re not giving away too much yet…
But fear not, Londoners! Before we go, we’re going to be staging a one-off sneak preview premiere of our set (along with a few other cracking arrangements).
Come along to the Tea House Theatre, Vauxhall Walk, at 8pm on Thursday 2 April for a relaxed evening of a cappella, drinks and cake.
Entry is free. What better way could there be to kick off the Easter weekend?!
We’re pleased to announce that we’re returning to the Greenwood Theatre in London Bridge this summer, and tickets are ON SALE NOW!
With the possible exception of some Independence Day ‘humour’*, this is a no-gimmicks, straight-up, best-of evening of great a cappella. Expect some old favourites, recent favourites, not yet favourites (aka world premieres) and a Disney Medley. Oh yes.
Friday 4 July 2014, 8-10pm (bar open from 7.30pm and during the interval) Greenwood Theatre, 55 Weston St, London SE1 3RA
Tickets £10 (£5 concession or FREE for under-16s and school pupils)
We’re as guilty as any other group of preparing an encore just in case we do a good enough job to warrant one. After all, we’d hate to palm paying punters off with a poor performance and second rate singing, if they’ve enjoyed us enough to request more… Last impressions and all that.
The thing is, though, that the requests can often be a tad specific, and one request has been bellowed at our bowing bodies more than all the others put together. It’s a song that’s been with us since our first gig over five years back, as famous for its moves and video as its music and vocals… none other than Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller‘.
It’s quite a rush dragging your reluctant feet across the stage, crooked arms outstretched to grab the virtuosic Vishal, while trying to remember whether this ‘doop’ is the one that’s sharp… But like all our songs – and our members – it needs some time off to put its feet up after a long stretch of hard work.
So if you’re coming to see us on Saturday, please do ask us for the encore we’ve so presumptuously prepared, but don’t expect to have any choice in what it is. You’re gonna love it.
Celebrating our fifth anniversary and launching our new (fourth) album, we’re doing a proper full length show in a proper big theatre, and tickets are NOW ON SALE!
Expect brand new, never-before-performed arrangements alongside highlights from our first half-decade, and the sets that earned us the title of Champions (2012) and the Ward Swingle Award for Originality (2013) at the Voice Festival UK Community Competition.
