All That Malarkey – Classical Cabaret | Cardiff | Wales

All That Malarkey


All That Malarkey are a strikingly original and entertaining vocal act combining opera, pop and comedy. A Classically-influenced vocal ensemble, All That Malarkey (ATM) is a group of young singers who specialise in blending beautiful voices and unique arrangements in a collision of opera, pop and comedy. Entertaining, sophisticated and wildly funny, the result is a classical cabaret fusion that adds a memorable, uplifting and high-quality element to any event. They are available to hire for corporate parties, balls, product launch parties, film premieres, anniversaries and weddings. These corporate entertainers really know how to get people on the dance floor!

Fast becoming known for their witty and strikingly original classical interpretations of famous songs from a broad range of genres (from Gershwin to Gloria Gaynor and The Beatles to Bruno Mars) ATM is produced by their dynamic MD/pianist (“reminiscent of some bizarre Jools Holland and Stephen Fry fusion”), David George Harrington, who has recently arranged music for Katherine Jenkins and has produced work for the BBC.”

Testimonials:
 
“Tight harmonies…bags of energy…four dangerously good singers, with a hilarious MC and pianist…thoroughly appealing and professionally hilarious.”
– Three Weeks Review (Edinburgh Fringe)
 
“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. I cannot recommend All That Malarkey highly enough!”
– Andrew Miller (Head of Creative Programming, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama)
 
“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.”
– Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund
 
“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.”
– Jenny McIntyre (Collector, The Incorporation of Wrights, Glasgow):
 
“Bold, striking and oft humorous interpretations of classic songs…wide ranging repertoire….expertly performed and acted out by this youthful and energetic ensemble”
– David Owens (Wales Online)
 
“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.”
– Roger Redfarn (Ex-West End Director/Producer)

Cabaret, comedy, classical music, bonkers behaviour…bloody brilliant!
– Karen Price (Arts Editor, Media Wales)
