The Demon Barbers have done 100s of concerts and cabarets at music festivals, clubs, theatres, arts centres, Public Schools and company dinners. These include several performances in London Halls (Barbican and The Purcell Room), and most recently a part in Lorin Maazel's opera, '1984', at Covent Garden.

The group has performed extensively on BBC and Commercial Radio and Television, appearing on programmes such as TVS's 'No.73', Jonathan Ross' 'Last Resort', the BBC2 'DEF II House Party' with Normsky, Brian Matthew's 'Round Midnight' and Esther Rantzen's 'That's Life'. H.M. Government has enthusiastically backed their international engagements, but has so far been unable to stop their coming back.

Here are some observations from the press et al.....

"One of the most entertaining programmes of this year's event"
Margam Festival (South Wales Evening Post)

"Clever, polished singing ... lightness, brightness and entertainment."
(The Scotsman)

"The Demon Barbers are to male voice a capella what Victor Borge was to the piano ... a show that seemed unrestrained in technique and invention ... they entertain in gloriously deadpan style while never reneging on the most important concern, which is to sing songs and to sing them well."
(Lincolnshire Standard)

"A near capacity audience was amused, entertained and impressed ... the presentation was relaxed, slick and professional."
(Banbury Guardian)

"They have good voices."
(The Stage)

"The group are facial comedians ... vastly entertaining."
(Norwich Mercury)

"They sing like angels, but I wouldn't trust any of them to cut my hair!"
(Chelmsford Cathedral Festival)

"A cross between The King's Singers and Desperate Dan."
(Kingston Borough News)

"Short back and side-splitting."
(Falmouth Observer)

"Melodious, inventive, harmonious, anarchic."
(Hertford Mercury)

"A night to make you laugh and cry."
(Melrose Monocle)

" ... the Marx Brothers, Morecombe and Wise and The Tallis Scholars all rolled into five ..."
(Petersfield Herald)

" ... complete with fat tenor and oversized bass ..."
(Weekly Diary)
