Sometimes silly and humorous, sometimes blissfully tender-hearted, the Spooky Men strike a deeply human chord.

Armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye, the Spooky Men’s Chorale commentates on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male.

Find out why the group has won over audiences internationally with its blend of beautiful ballads, Georgian table songs and tongue-in-cheek anthems like ‘Don’t stand between a man and his tool’.

A message from the Spooky Men:

I’m very excited to announce that the Spooky Men’s Chorale are playing our first gigs of 2022, at the Joan Sutherland performing Arts Centre in Penrith, on Feb 11 and 12. We would absolutely be delighted to see you there.

We’re aware, of course, that these are curious times, and you may have concerns.

One legitimate concern may well be Covid safety at a gig like this. In this regard we can tell you the following:

  1. Proof of fully vaxxed status and a mask will be required for attendees.
  2. The venue has a UVC ventilation system….and capacity will be limited/spacing increased.
  3. All spooks will be double vaxxed (very likey all of us boosted too) and will have a negative RAT test before performing (if that’s humanly possible).
  4. The venue has a very good refund policy.
  5. there won’t (sadly) be a singing along section!

The other concern may be that we have forgotten how to either sing, or be funny. Luckily, the opposite is true. Lockdowns and general government flummery has made us all more hilarious than ever. We have been able to tour somewhat and have many bootcamps. I feel confident in saying that the spooky ship is thrumming along better than it has ever done so. And….I think these will be special gigs, given the rareness of the thing we’re doing, for us, and for you.

Please feel free to pass this information on to several thousand people

Amen, Hallelujah, our regards to your wisteria

"It takes a rare skill to be very silly, thoughtful, and sing in perfect harmony, but the Spooky Men's Chorale manage to achieve just that."
