Out Of The Blue

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

Listening to the sizeable roar of the crowd as this all-male a cappella group explode on stage, you’d be forgiven for mistaking them for The Beatles. There will undoubtedly be comparisons to ‘Glee’ which is wholly unfair; Out Of The Blue are in a different league entirely. You will find no miming/autotune/diva behaviour here. Blending incredible talent to create dazzling entertainment, they put their unique spin on a variety of classics and chart hits, combining it all with stylish choreography. As well as exquisite harmonies, their mash-ups are particularly crafty. There are no passengers here: each member commands presence and the soloists are pitch-perfect. Quash those ‘Glee’ comparisons – ‘Glee’ will never seem the same again!

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 28 Aug (not 22, 23, 24), 3.00pm (3.50pm), £9.50 – £10.50, fpp215.
