Out of the Blue

5 Stars *****

 Out of the Blue, an a cappella group based in Oxford are well on their way to becoming Fringe institutions that is assuming the have not already reached this status.

Fourteen male singers in pale blue shirts, dark suits but seemingly lacking shoes, took to the stage of the sold out Pleasance Beyond and for the new 50 minutes produced a high quality entertainment for one and all.

I am a veteran of their shows so was not surprised at the fare on offer, but I was sitting next to first timers who were blown away.

A fusion of music with fun choreography, a variety of singers leading on different songs, mash-ups Glee style and even audience participation was the order of the day.

The repertoire was wide, Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Louis Beiga, U2, Katie Perry and Sting were artistes featured but this list is not definitive.

I understand that tickets are already at a premium for this show so don’t delay should it be your thing, and why wouldn’t it be?
