“All That Malarkey have developed, in my view, a unique approach to cabaret. Borne of a genuine love of musical theatre and contemporary pop, their performances embrace the audience with their skill and enthusiasm yet provide a sharp edge that delivers the unexpected. A background of Classical music discipline shines through their highly professional approach to their work. All That Malarkey have delivered several high profile commissions for us ranging from an all new musical theatre entertainment for young children, an evening celebrating Welsh composing legend Ivor Novello and Glitterball – a forthcoming highlight of our season celebrating great gay artists. This random group of events demonstrate not only the groups’ range and flexibility but also that of their dynamic Musical Director and arranger; undeniably a star in formation, David Harrington. I cannot recommend All That Malarkey highly enough to potential agents and bookers alike”
(Ex West End Director/Producer)
“I have had the great pleasure of knowing and working with ‘All That Malarkey’ for over two years and I think that they are a most talented and unusual group of young singers. Their work is not only of the highest standard musically but also very original and full of wonderful humour. I have enjoyed watching them develop into very sophisticated and highly entertaining performers”
“…bold, striking and oft humorous interpretations of classic songs…wide ranging repertoire…expertly performed and acted out by this youthful and energetic ensemble.”
(Royal Navy and Royal Marines Childrens Fund)
“All That Malarkey are an exceptionally talented group that have performed for us at two of our events. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed their original and amusing performances and we will certainly be booking them again for future events. Cannot recommend them too highly!”
(Collector, The Incorporation of Wrights Glasgow)
“Thank you so very much to ATM for providing the entertainment at the Sheep’s Heid Dinner last night. Your professionalism made organising the event so much easier for me. The playlist suggestions worked a treat and the energy, which reverberated around the room, will go down in the history of the Incorporation of Wrights in Glasgow. In his concluding remarks our Deacon said it was the best entertainment he had experienced at House events, which is high praise indeed, especially as he played at his own dinner 2 years ago! I’ll remember the evening for many years to come and if doing it again, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
“…All That Malarkey: A fantastic night’s entertainment!! I was not exactly sure what to expect and was truly impressed with the quality of their voices, the unique musical arrangements, the comedy factor and most importantly their very professional delivery. Don’t miss it.
…Amazing! None of us were prepared for how original, funny and gobsmackingly talented these five young people were. It was a truly polished performance of a standard we honestly were not expecting. Operatic singing with true star quality. The rendition of Dido’s ‘White Flag’ was one of many highlights and the comic genius of ‘The Ugly Duckling’ brought the house down! We are going again tonight. If you can only see one show this year… make it All That Malarkey!
…In a small and intimate venue nestled behind the Canongate in Edinburgh’s Old Town, in front of an audience of 30 or so, an auspicious group of graduates from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama take to the stage to dazzle the expectant audience with jaw dropping talent. The fresh, dynamic and youthful theatrical quintet (David George Harrington, Amy Fuller, Frances Gregory, Colin Thomas Bryce & Eleias Roberts) seduce us all with a mesmerizing, operatic take on contemporary songs, providing an eclectic mash-up of operatic classics, theatre, pop, hip hop and R&B whilst still maintaining a vibe of being transported to a 1940s musical.
Their versatile range of talent and musical genres combined with their mouth watering vocals leave the audience breathless and grasping for more during this fresh, inspiring and original show. The two girls are particularly striking in angelic radiance and stunning vocals. The operatic male singers are a sublime theatrical match in their red and black attire, and the quintet is perfectly completed with the boundless and entertaining energy of the pianist, who is reminiscent of some bizarre Jools Holland and Stephen Fry fusion.
Giving fresh, new takes on real-life fairy tales, operatic renditions of Beatles and Bill Withers’ classics, and throwing in some bizarre hip hop theatrical mashup, this talented bunch kept us perched on our seats, and intrigued with what would come next. This was an operatic pleasureseeker’s paradise, packed with fun, frolics and sublime, mouthwatering vocals – a fruit cocktail for the ears, packed with a zesty punch! And as the last delicious lingering note exited the room, it left behind an infinitely hesitant silence before the crescendo of applause thundered forth our appreciation.”,/p>
“…Fancy a bit of ashamedly cheesy cabaret? This young and talented lot will be sure to deliver. Their technically brilliant voices delivered tight harmonies and brought bags of energy to the stage. Four dangerously good singers, with a hilarious MC and pianist, have clearly worked extremely hard to hone their talents. Keeping the audience highly entertained and bringing fantastic performance skills to a light-hearted cabaret, the show was full of funny and charming characters ....An hour that was thoroughly appealing and professionally hilarious.”
“What do you get when you cross classical singing and cabaret and throw in a spot of comedy for good measure?All That Malarkey, that’s what.
And if you’ve been feeling just the tiniest bit blue you can guarantee the Cardiff-based quartet, led by the wonderfully eccentric musical director David Harrington, will soon put a smile on your face... You can understand why they were such a hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
With rainbow flags draped over the balcony and a huge glitterball hanging from the ceiling, Harrington said they would be celebrating “all things gay” and launched straight into the introduction Keep It Gay from hit musical The Producers. From there we were taken on a rollercoaster ride through a plethora of unexpected tracks. You may not have heard Soft Cell’s Tainted Love and Tchaikovsky’s None But The Lonely Heart sung in the same breath before but, surprisingly, it worked. From Lady Gaga to Benjamin Britten, this was a musical mystery trip not for the faint-hearted.
Still only 24, Harrington is a superb pianist and music arranger, who brings humour to everything.
Original, witty and talented, All That Malarkey really need to be seen to be believed”
