Big, bold, bible-black, bilious ... the Spooky Men's Chorale has been hammering hapless audiences for more than a decade. Based on the twin pillars of grand foolishness and the quest for the perfect subwoofer rattling boofchord, the Spookies seek to commentate on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats, their facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye. For their 5th UK tour, these Aussie larrikins arrive with their new album, "The Spooky Man In History", which calmly, amusingly and cavernously redefines the very genre they invented themselves.
". . .while the comedy tunes were the most instantly memorable, on the few occassions that they allowed their comical masks to slip, they produced some genuinely bittersweet music" - www.southwales-eveningpost.co.uk
"The Spooky Men had already cajoled the crowds into standing up in their seats, and they roared for an encore. The Spookies obliged with one last waltz, every man coming down from the stage and inviting the audience until it seemed as though the entire hall was dancing, the men singing in scintillating harmony." - Folk Wales Review

Saw The Spooky Men last night in Findhorn. Fantastic entertainment if you have a sense of humour and enjoy good singing. Don't miss them - they only come to Scotland every 2 years.
