Buzzology (The Buzztones)

By | Published on Saturday 15 August 2015


Dressed in endearingly mismatched suits and busting out some of the most embarrassing dad dancing you’ll ever have seen, The Buzztones certainly know how to embrace their uncool. Their unaccompanied music is interspersed with small sections of comedy and interaction, although some attempts are more successful than others. Nevertheless, their arrangements of contemporary classics are complex and varied while individually they each shine to produce some incredible solos. Highlights include a rendition of The Spice Girls ‘2 Become 1’ in a French accent and an enduring love for alpaca facts (a bit bemusing, yes, but all becomes clear at the end of the set). It’s not your typical acapella experience, that’s for sure.

Gilded Balloon, until 21 Aug.
