Direct from a US and European tour, the magnificent five are riding into London!
Armed with over 100 instruments, these brilliant musicians perform music from the movies that made Clint Eastwood a star. The stunning Ennio Morricone soundtrack includes The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, For A Few Dollars More and Once Upon a Time in The West. This ingenious gang of comic maestros underscore these classic compositions with hilarious sound effects: blowing on bottles, crushing cornflakes, ‘playing’ coat hangers, squeaky toys, bicycle pumps, nail clippers and many more - recreating every punch up, gunshot, and jangling spur that define the gun slinging west.
‘Compelling theatricality and kaleidoscopic range of moods, from slapstick hilarity to authentically creepy menace. An inspired show.’ (The Scotsman)
‘That the musicians perform with the enormous gravity of a Mozart symphony, only serves to make this extraordinary show all the funnier.’ (The Guardian)
