    Join us on the final Friday of January for this humdinger of a show as we welcome two mighty male vocal groups to Paper Dress for an awesome double header, plus support from 2 fresh new bands to get the party started.

    CITY SHANTY BAND
    https://www.facebook.com/CityShantyBand/
    Ahoy! We are the City Shanty Band an 11-member shanty band described by the Daily Mail as a “hackney-based a cappella group” which is wrong because we’ve got an accordion and a drum – silly fascists.

    We sing a mix of original compositions and traditional sea shanties with an urban twist. Urgh! Urban twist is a horrible way of describing anything. Basically, we change the lyrics a bit to make them relevant and shit, yeah?

    CHAPS CHOIR
    https://www.facebook.com/ChapsChoir/

    The Chaps sing songs from across the world, combining surprising choices with deft arrangements, always with an added chappist twist. Prepare for pop song re-hashes snowy hunting calls, Manhattanite observations, self-aware pirates and, well, lots of men singing.

    Since the choir first gathered, the Chaps have sung in The Royal Festival Hall, The Roundhouse, Natural History Museum, appeared at Daylight Music, Port Eliot, Citadel, The Young Vic Theatre and return regularly to their local Islington venue The Union Chapel.
