The Magnets – Gobsmacked!

5 stars

The Magnets are taking a cappella music to a whole, new dynamic level. I would defy anybody who sees a Magnets show not to get caught up in the excitement as they perform a bunch of toe tapping songs.

Their appeal works in many ways. They can take well known songs and give them a fresh treatment. Their harmonies and rhythms are really, really tight as is their choreography to give the complete polished, performance. All achieved with good humour and audience rapport.  

Every item in the show is a highlight. They choose songs from artists such as Michael Jackson, David Bowie, The Scissor Sisters, Franz Ferdinand and many more. Into this mix they do a spectacular, rapid fire A-Z of bands and an incredible mouth drum solo.

The term ‘unmissable’ is bandied around in show descriptions and fliers. This show is one of the few that lives up to the description. The Magnets are an act that is right at the top of its game.
