All aboard! Don't miss the Big Gig!

Don't be like these chaps, late and (possibly) running for the wrong train - get yourselves organised as there is still just about time to get your tickets for our Big Gig of the mid-summer 

Tickets are still available from and we hope to see you there for a cracking show.

And don't worry, it is after the Association Football World Cup 3rd Place Play-off featuring the English team, so no real excuse to miss out on what should be a fascinating evening's entertainment.

It's coming home, it's coming home, Singing's coming home

So, the dream of the Association Football team of England triumphing at a World Cup has come to an end for another generation, but don't be sad it's all over, be glad it happened.  

And if that does not quite console you enough then come and join our winning team as The Magnificent AK47 go head to head, song for song, with the rather splendid Wessex Male Choir at STEAM, in the heart of Swindon's heritage quarter this coming Saturday (yes, right after the 3rd Place Play-off match in case you need further consoling or are celebrating!).

Tickets are still available from and we hope to see you there for a cracking evening.

"A once in a generation moment"?

There is a lot of talk about "once in a generation moment", er, at the moment... something to do with an Association Football match of national importance??

Well, surely that pales into insignificance compared with the "once in a generation moment" of two of the top male voiced choirs in the county, nay, country coming to sing together this Saturday?!

And it will be a football free evening, so no excuses and even more reason to venture to and find out for yourself how it pans out, by being there yourself so in years to come you can say "I was there" at that special moment for BlokeSong and alternative mvc.

All aboard for STEAM

We are very excited to entice you all aboard for a big show at STEAM with the Wessex Male Voice Choir.  This will be a unique show with two of the top male voiced choral groups in the county, nay, England, joining together in a location that has cultural heritage importance at a global level.   Not bad for a bunch of blokes form North North Wiltshire!

Full details can be found via their site at

Shiver me timbers! Rattle me bones!

Fair warning to the land lubbers of Sherston that those infamous scurvy dogs of BlokeSong and #altmvc will be sailing into their community this coming Friday 29th June.

Expect much singing and much ale quaffing in such a convivial establishment - get there early to find a space.

Blokeingly BRILLIANT BlokeFest

A picture says it all - can you spot the Magnificent Blokes intermingled with BlokeFest Blokes?  A great photo of a great weekend - with due thanks to Mr Hicks and the blokes themselves.

Now back to our humdrum lives... luckily we've got some more gigs coming up to help us through!

It's beginning to look a lot like... BlokeFest!

To (mis)quote the bard, Michael Bubblé, "It's beginning to look a lot like"... BlokeFest!

That annual event when the clans of BlokeSong gather for some #altmvc alternative Male Voice Choiring activities and general good blokey socialising that was the fruit of some particularly visionary "pub talk" many moons ago.

This year they have blokes coming from all over the British Isles and even the continent to be there and a cracking line up of Workshop Leaders.  So, expect it to go a bit quiet from here for the rest of the week and into next as we prepare and recover from another epic event.
