The Magnificent AK47
Genre: A capella
Description: A capella Choir
Availability: Concerts, folk and acoustic clubs and festival events
Formed in 2008 and they are a bunch of blokes who meet every 6 weeks or so
to learn songs, enjoy a beer, a couple of hours of camaraderie and fulfil themselves by unlocking the inner minstrel trapped within their humdrum 21st century daily existences.
Most of them are not what you might call “proper singers”. They learn their material by ear, have recordings to help them practice and when they get together they find they very quickly make a sound that can be quite, er, magnificent!
They sing all sorts of material A capella, with no musical accompaniment just harnessing the power of their individual voices joining in unison to create a sound that has been praised by the toughest critics (“the wife”) as “surprisingly good”!
They sing low and with a Georgian-inspired a capella style about things that are important to modern 21st Century Blokes, about being Sheds, the importance of the land, wishing they were pirates in a land locked county and they love to perform our songs in public whilst wearing appropriate hats and other visual treats that make us a unique sound and visually engaging act.
Well worth hearing and seeing; a hugely enjoyable experience not to be missed
