Playing Politics


This is a five star show all round. The music is impeccable: guitar, vocals, harmonies and solos. The sound across the speakers is great. The songs – which you’ll know the tunes to ‘but not the lyrics’ – are brilliantly adapted to suit their subjects: the Olympics, politicians (lots of them, but not always for negative things, though mostly), Prince Phillip, and Donald Trump. The explanations and introductions to the songs are natural and conversational, and the humour never sounded rehearsed. And the audience had a great time – there were two encores.

Playing Politics are two musicians: two acoustic guitars, vocals and harmony, and they deliver a very professional and very, very funny show.
