[MUSIC/a Cappella ~ AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE ~ UK]
Wonderland Spiegeltent at Gluttony, Thu 20 Feb.
Those talented men with their remarkable voices and astounding a Cappella harmonies are back to entertain us as part of Adelaide Fringe 2020! In 2019 it was the ‘80s party time, but this new era brings new faces, new songs and new heights to Gluttony’s Wonderland Spiegeltent!
The boys have chosen a surprising eclectic range of ‘90s songs from Robbie Williams, Backstreet Boys, AC/DC, Seal… and then there are all those fabulous ‘90s Divas! Every song, every note, every smooth groove is delivered with that Magnet magic that we have come to know and love.
Absolutely a party starter, grab your friends, re- live your ‘90s party era, get up on your feet and dance and sing along with them. Kick your fringe night off with a bang and a smile that lingers on your face and heart.
I think all the superlatives to exclaim the talent and entertainment these guys have and give, have been used already and none of which can actually capture the essence of what The Magnets bring to the stage and to the audience. Returning to the Fringe stage is Callum McIntosh, Michael Conway and beatboxer/musical director Nicholas Girard. Joining The Magnets are two new faces from the USA: Alfonso Austin and Aaron Boykin. These groovers not only compliment the vocal athletics of their band mates, but add yet another level of depth and smoothness that completes the five of them as a vocal entity.
There is no denying that The Magnets get better and better every time I see them. So, in the words of Molly Meldrum, do yourself a favour and go see these boys! They are satisfaction guaranteed!
This won’t be the last time I will be coming to see them. Bring your friends, sing and dance and just have a great time!
