Four Poofs & a Piano
More hairdresser than barbershop, this self-explanatory ensemble first performed at Soho’s exclusive Groucho Club back in mid-2000. They went on to play in venues ranging from the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London’s Mardi Gras, and in their own show LIVE AT LAST at the Kings Head theatre.
In 2001 the boys were spotted by the producers of the BAFTA and Comedy Award winning FRIDAY NIGHT WITH JONATHAN ROSS and were invited to become the resident house band. With an average weekly audience of over five million, they have provided musical introductions for Jonathan and his star guests including…Madonna, Paul McCartney, Paul Newman, David Bowie, Robbie Williams, and Quentin Tarrantino.
With their jaunty re-workings of show tunes, funk, punk, rap and swing 4 POOFS AND A PIANO have become a household name and, following on from the success of the ‘Friday Night With Jonathan Ross’, they have been making a number of VIP appearances for such notable clients as Microsoft, JLT Solutions, Lloyds List Shipping Awards and the grand opening of Selfridges in Birmingham.
Other TV appearances include…
- THE TERRY AND GABY SHOW
- HARRY HILL’S TV BURP
- GOOD FOOD LIVE
- THIS WEEK
- CHILDREN IN NEED
- RICHARD AND JUDY
They also had the honour of joining Jonathan Ross on stage to collect the 2003 British Comedy Award. Christmas 2003 saw the release of their first single, CAMP UP YOUR CHRISTMAS which outsold Blue and Atomic Kitten in HMV.
In August 2004, the boys took their own show NEVER MIND THE BOTOX to the Edinburgh Festival where they played to sell out audiences and received rave reviews including the coveted 4 Star review from The Scotsman who cited the boys as having “enough panache to fill an entire jewel box” and went on to describe the show as “innovative, funny and sprinkled with genuine talent.”
