    Event description

    Drop deadpan beautiful mansinging that may well change your life.

    The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam powered and black clad 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.


    IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION:

    Your ticket gets you into the concert (of course!)  plus.... the option of free attendance at the Axis of Spook workshop on Sunday 30 July (the day of the concert) from 2.30 to 4.00 pm (more details below). 

    From out of this workshop, the Axis of Spook choir will form for one night only. You will learn "Treaty", by Yothu Yindi and "Sweetest Kick" by Stephen Taberner and get to perform with the Spooky Men at the concert. In addition to the workshop, full learning materials for the songs will be available online.  All workshop details, (please SEE BELOW). 

     If you are in an established choir and can get a group of 10 choir mates together then take advantage of our discounted choir group deal ($44 ticket).  If you can't summon 9 choir friends then the $49 choir individual ticket is the one for you.  If it's all too confusing, just buy lots of the $59 tickets.
