The London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra
High Energy Musical Comedy!
If Laughter is the Best Medicine, the LPSO is just the tonic – they'll leave you in stitches!
The London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra is a breath of fresh air. In a world where everyone is frightened to make a joke, for fear of offending someone, The LPSO is in no risk of offending anyone, except those with no sense of the ridiculous!
Maintaining the musical comedy tradition of Viv Stanshall, the Bonzo Dog Doodah Band, Spike Jones and his City Slickers and, in more recent times, The Old / New Rope String Band and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, The LPSO meticulously blend virtuoso musical performances with anarchic, absurdist comedy. Their performances are colourful, bizarre, tuneful and hilarious, incorporating a wealth of instruments, costume changes, and numerous outlandish props.
Most impressive is the group's seemingly endlesss energy and enjoyable enthusiasm to entertain and enchant. Their boundless exuberance and their skill and versatility of their musicianship drives the show forward and forward, and faster and faster, to a dafter and dafter comical climax, which will leave us all breathless with admiration.
The LPSO come to the Arts Centre, for one night only, fresh from playing London's Union Chapel, as part of a star-studded bill including Ralph McTell, Chas and Dave, The Jive Aces, Chris Difford & Billy Bragg, in the show A Night For Lonnie Donnegan, honouring the UK's Skiffle King.
