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.

For 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.
