The Spooky Men's Chorale

One of Australia's best-loved and most highly acclaimed male vocal ensembles, the Spooky Men's Chorale, will appear at the Port Arthur Historic Site this July as part of the 2014 Festival of Voices.

"... 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."

The Spooky Men's Chorale at Port Arthur

Saturday 12 July, 2014

Don't miss the Spooky Men's Chorale in concert, workshop and community sing-a-long at the Port Arthur historic Site

The Spooky Men's Chorale is 'a bunch of singers from the Blue Mountains.... a regular gaggle of dads and teachers, carpenters and architects. Except they just happen to be a bit spooky.'

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 and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye.

They have performed to general delirium at most Australian festivals and pillaged the UK to even more devastating effect since 2006.

"There is no chintz, no bling and no kitsch in their routine. Instead this rugby team-size choir of boofy blokes settles for a healthy blend of eccentricity, scariness and laughs." - The Sydney Morning Herald
"...the wit extends to the music itself, the lunacy is broken up with splashes of cuteness and poignancy and because of the sheer musical excellence." - John Shand, SMH
