Everybody’s favourite choir – in fact hands down the most entertaining choir Australia has ever seen! Hilarious, moving, a truly incredible experience!
All around Australia, excitement is mounting: society women are slightly breathless, small children and dogs are yapping at nothing, and real estate salesmen are vaguely anxious. Supplies of grandiose hatwear, beard grooming equipment and pigfat are running low.
Inspired by the great Georgian male choirs, The Spooky Men were formed in the Blue Mountains in 2001 by Christchurch-born deerstalker-topped impresario Stephen Taberner, and have single-handedly redefined men's singing in the interim. Unafraid to juxtapose pindrop perfect ballads with hilarious, elephantine renditions of pop classics (“Dancing Qveen”) and their own repertoire of foolish man anthems (“Don't Stand Between a Man and his Tool”), they have lovingly hammered gleeful Australian, NZ and UK audiences with a bankable series of classics.
The Spookies' sound - warm and grainy as a slab of teak - and their humorous style - deadpan, sly, and always unexpected - find new and wonderful avenues of expression on “The Spooky Man in History”.
“A skilful mix of faultless vocal expertise and maverick abandon ... Compelling, ‘bespook’ serious fun, and totally irresistible to boot ...” Froots magazine
“High camp, epic folly - probably the best programming choice of the entire summer festival circuit” - The Irish Times
“This is surely the best a capella act in the land” John Shand, SMH
“While superficially a comedy act, the Spooky Men are also fine close harmony singers, their tuning, timing and dynamics impeccable.” The Independent (London)
