Devilishly handsome and dangerously good, the mysterious male choir Men Of The West are sure to be a must-see event at this year’s Denmark Festival of Voice.
The Men of the West return to Customs House Fremantle with a sumptuous program to resonate in this historic building for the Fremantle Heritage Festival.
Festival favourites in WA for more than a decade, and after successful seasons at Fringe World and sell-out shows at the Fly By Night Musicians Club, the Men, black and be-hatted, are here to amuse Fremantle with a manbag full of entertainment; self-deprecating humour mixed with poignancy, subtle theatre, and some fine strong harmonies.

Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge
Part pompous parade, part intricate lecture, part stand-off. Come and witness a 18-strong line of men sing about what it takes to build a man. From concrete to power tools, recipes to beards and perhaps back to tools again. With humour mixed with poignancy, subtle theatre, and some fine strong harmonies, it’s time to extend your expectations of a male choir. Ancient Georgian folksongs, curious Stephen Taberner originals and their unexpected versions of well-known favourites are all found in the repertoire. Festival favourites in WA for more than a decade, and after two successful seasons at FRINGE WORLD 2016 & 2017, the Men are back to entertain you, black and be-hatted, with a new manbag full of goodies.
February 6-12 at 6pm
Please note this show has men in a range of black outfits (not entirely matching) and hats, singing together.
The Men of the West will stretch your expectations of a men’s choral group. Let this black, be-hatted behemoth take you on an unexpected journey to attempt to decipher the role of men in our ever-changing world.
Rising from the ashes of the much-acclaimed Spooky Men of the West, the Men will deliver a variety of a cappella songs ranging from the haunting beauty of ancient Georgian harmonies, curious originals and their own versions of well-known favourites.
Returning to Fringe World after great success in 2016, the Men have been regulars at the Fairbridge Festival and the Dunsborough Songfest over the past decade.
‘Gentle and sad, even sweet, but also powerful and unmistakably male’.
