The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam-powered and black-clad behemoth who 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.
The Spooks have attracted audiences throughout Australia and internationally with a judicious blend of Georgian table songs, pindrop beautiful ballads, and immaculate man anthems like “Don’t stand between a man and his tool”.
Audiences are invited to first joyously experience 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.
