The Spooky Men’s Chorale, St Mary's Church, Nottingham - 15th July 2017

Lovely venue (beautiful church) which is an ideal setting for their a Capella performance. Their leader gave an amusing introduction to each of their mostly self penned ( I assume) songs e.g. We are not a men's group. The group mingled with the audience at the interval and after the performance. The final song Leonard Cohen's 'Dance me to the end of love'. The group then encouraged the audience to dance with their partners and lead by example! A fabulous evening of excellent choral singing with a generally comic twist. The church volunteers provided non alcoholic refreshments at extremely reasonable prices. The groups tour continues till the autumn. Well worth checking out.we would certainly go again.

Excellent show, hope to come again. First half a bit slow, could have done with less talk and more singing, perhaps a couple of "standards" to complement your own work. Second half brilliant, made up for it. Would have given it a "5" if the first half was as good.

A long term fan of the Spookies this was the first time I have managed to see them live. Their vocal range, blending and balance were incredible, both moving and inspiring. Masters of the comic touch, there was not a dry seat in the house. I was glad they included "Crossing the Bar" as it is a personal favourite, and it will be well worth dying to hear it again. I was blown away by the Georgian songs which made excellent use of the natural accoustics. Thanks for an unforgettable evening.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale, St Mary's Church, Nottingham - 15th July 2017

What a thoroughly wonderful experience Saturday evening's performance was. I had never seen the Spookys (Spookies?) live, and my wife had no idea what she was in for - but her face was wreathed in smiles from start to finish, so at least I earned some marital 'Brownie Points' for dragging her out into the jungle that is Nottingham on a weekend evening. And we got to dance in the finale, so that was an unexpected bonus…..
As a retired cabinet-maker, Don't Stand Between a Man and His Tool hit the proverbial nail on the head, and I think the meltingly beautiful Sweetest Kick will be THE love song that will be us until we pop our clogs.
Thank you SO much, and here's to 2019 when - I sincerely hope - you will make a welcome return to The Queen of the Midlands.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam powered and black clad vocal behemoth, seemingly accidentally capable of rendering audiences moist eyed with mute appreciation or haplessly gurgling with merriment. Based on the twin pillars of grand foolishness and the quest for the perfect subwoofer-rattling boofchord, the Spooky Men seek to commentate on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye.
Formed in the Blue Mountains of NSW in 2001 by Christchurch-born ‘spookmeister’ Stephen Taberner, the Spooky Men soon attracted attention with a judicious combination of Georgian table songs, pindrop beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems like ‘Don’t stand between a man and his tool’, all of which amounted to a manifesto for the new breed of man: happily suspended between thug and wimp.
The Spooky Men attracted wider attention at the National Folk Festival in Canberra 2004, which led to the first of six tours to the UK in 2006. Standout appearances amongst their 500+ gigs since have included (in Australia) WOMADelaide, The Great Escape Festival, Woodford, Cobargo, Port Fairy, Blue Mountains and Bellingen festivals. ABC TV appearances include The Mix, Spicks and Specks, and The New Inventors Grand Final.
In the UK/Europe they have appeared at major festivals including Tonder (Denmark), Malmo (Sweden), Cambridge, Broadstairs, Wickham, Camp Bestival, Towersey, Shrewsbury, and Edinburgh Fringe. Theatrical venues have included Union Chapel (London), St David’s Hall (Cardiff), The Philharmonic (Liverpool), Colston Hall (Bristol), the Sheldonian (Oxford) and Sage Gateshead.
The Spooky Men have recorded six CDs: Tooled Up (2004), Stop Scratching It (2007), Deep (2009), Big (2011), The Spooky Man in History (2013), and Warm (2015).
In live performance, the Spooky Men draw on a combination of musical and theatrical values that are elusive and multifarious. Notable themes and antecedents include Georgian male polyphony, a running joke on man as a vast, oblivious useless object, whispers of clown, bouffon and Monty Python, and forays into massively pleasurable grunting tribalism. The audience are invited to first joyously endure a wall of mansound, then laugh stupidly, then venture into areas of great tenderness. It is ideally not so much comedic as hilarious, not so much shimmeringly perfect as pleasingly and deeply human.
