Sassparella tonight!

And a final reminder that we will be performing in that there Bath with the very delightful Sassparella in a return return match.   

We sang with them in this venue a couple of years ago and everyone enjoyed the event so much that they wanted to do it again in The Sundial ( and everyone enjoyed the event so much that they wanted to do it again again!  

So, we look forward to Saturday's event and what happens next.

Some tickets still available last we heard - enquire via

Gulls done good!

It was great to be in the Tetbury Goods Shed, back by popular demand, last Saturday, with a pretty much packed out theatre and very appreciative audience.  It is a lovely place to sing and a really great team running the place, full of very enthusiastic staff who really got into the "Magnificent Mood" (as you can see below).

And it was particularly lovely to be singing with the ladies from The Gulls, all the way from darkest Kernow - they are a joy to behold with their self-proclaimed love of singing together as a tight nit group.  Their self-penned "Handbags are a girl's best friend" being a particular highlight amongst many others.   We are already looking forward to singing again with them down in Cornwall the next time we venture down there.

Wishing them all our Magnificent Love as they were touched by sad news on the Sunday, but we are sure their spirit will carry them through - till the next time ladies, we raise a glass (or two) to your good health! 

Johnny Coppin Says

A "brilliant Wiltshire choir"?  That's very nice to hear, as are we on occasion... 

We've always said he's got great taste that Johnny Coppin.  Read more about the fella at

Friends of Fisherman's Friends special Friends

With due deference to the original film that has just come out this week, we would like to stake a tenuous claim to fame about the story of Fisherman's Friends, given that we have bumped into several of them on our various trips to Cornwall and will be singing with The Gulls (who also hail from Port Isaac and have a more than passing acquaintance with the nautical singers) this coming Saturday night at the Tetbury Goods Shed.

In honour of this tenuous link, a bunch of us ventured to one of the Cinema Houses in Swindon to watch the film and the general consensus was that it is a really loving homage to the fine fellow from Kernow and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.  Roll on our next visitation down there!

Here you can see Neil B + Geoff S + Mark T resplendent in their Magnificent T-Shirts, with Geoff admiring the selection of overpriced confectionary / displaying his Tour T-Shirt from the last time we visited.

A dwindling number of tickets to see us in action with The Gulls are available at

P.S. Thanks to our ArtMeister for the Magnificentyfied image of the original promo for the film.

Gulls Ahoy!

We probably ought to mention the fact that we are in action again with the very lovely The Gulls from down Kernow way this coming weekend over in the very lovely Tetbury Goods Shed and then afterwards in the Bar of the very handily close Royal Oak for a bit of "Afters".

We believe some tickets are still available via where it clearly states 'Back by Popular Demand the Magnificent AK 47' and follows up with 'Original, eclectic material, songs of life and love, often with hilarious laughter and just a touch of amateur dramatics guaranteed to put a smile on your face, the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and leave you with tears of joy and empathy towards the rigours of being a new age man in the 21st Century.'  

Sounds rather good!

Hope to see you there.

Fabulous Lansdown

Stroud... fabulous, quirky place, full of choirs and singers.  Lansdown Hall... fabulous performance space in the heart of Stroud, full of audience.  What a fabulous evening in a fabulous space full of fabulous people!

We had a full house with a very appreciative audience for our second gig of the year, and a more than half decent performance from the blokes, even though we didn't say so ourselves because lots of people there said it for us.

All topped off by more than some half decent "Afters" and a particularly appreciated few jugs of ale from the landlady to appreciate our singing.

All in all, a fabulous night out for all.
