The Spooky Men's Chorale are the gift that keeps on giving…As thunderous as a herd of wildebeest, as sly as a wagonload of Spike Milligans and as sonorous as a cloister of monks.
The manchoir emerged blinking-eyed from the Blue Mountains of NSW fifteen years ago and armed with no more than their impressively cavernous vocal chords, a nice line in deadpan, improbable facial hair and an ill-matched set of hats, have been gleefully wooing audiences ever since.
Renowned for a combination of visigothic bravado, absurdist humour and eye-moistening tenderness, the Spookies
, in middle age, are more masters of their territory than ever before, with five critically-acclaimed albums under their belt.
Brandishing a shiny new CD, 'Welcome To The Second Half'
, the magnificent, craggy ensemble of heavenly singing male bodies return to The Apex, ever more comfortable with their whimsical humour and musical breadth – a winning spectrum of Georgian songs, pindrop-beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers and immaculate man anthems.
Their last UK tour saw a large number of sell-out concerts at major venues and a whole raft of ecstatic festival audience reactions. You must see them. Really, you must.
“Inspired – and a triumph of choreography! Catch them on the road – a fantastic night out is guaranteed!” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
