The Spooky Men of the West return to Fairbridge this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their first ever performance at Fairbridge in 2005.  It’s sure to be riotous and quirky.

From The Clothesline review of the Elder Hall concert at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, 28 Feb 2015.

“What a feast for the eyes and ears! Four choral groups performed before us in the beautiful acoustics of Elder Hall….The sassiness of the women is then counterpointed by the arrival of the Spooky Men Of The West as they saunter slowly on to the stage in their dark outfits, various hats and beards.; this bunch of blokes revel in their masculinity. Though not a Men’s group, they make sure we know they are men, that they are there and we notice them – ‘Yes’ – we see, hear and smell you! Ahhhmen. They love to sing about concrete, practice mysterious handshakes and are masters at ‘mastodontotry’ and ‘manhommery’. The lyrics are ironic (Don’t stand between a man and his tool), and accompanied by some very well executed comic theatre. Mostly originals, they do the occasional cover (Teddy Bears Picnic) but of course have to have a Spooky Men of The West twist!”

The Dark Knights of Song, aka the Spooky Men of the West, had great success at the 2014 Adelaide Fringe Festival.  The Dark Knights of Song won a Highly Commended for the Fringe Weekly Awards for Best Music, as well as a five-star review in the Advertiser.

The reviewer in the Advertiser said:

“Under the inspired direction of spookmeister Micheál McCarthy, they present a show that abounds in deadpan and often self-deprecating humour, but is also a touching and serious reflection on the identity crisis that blokes face in the modern world.”

He also went on to say “As it was, they looked pretty ordinary, but their show is not”.  We are not so sure about the “looked pretty ordinary” bit.

DKOS FlyerFor reasons which remain unfathomable, the Spooky Men of the West will appear at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2014 under the alias The Dark Knights of Song, supported by local choir Women with Latitude.
