The Magnets to Return to Adelaide Fringe, 14 Feb - 16 March
The Magnets, the number one selling music act at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe are heading back to Adelaide for the 2014 Fringe with a brand new show, entitled All This Time, packed with rocking tunes, cool doo-wop vibes and big band razzamatazz, all performed without an instrument in sight.
The Magnets will play from 14 February to 16 March at The Vagabond, Garden of Unearthly Delights at 7.00pm nightly (excepts Mondays). Tickets are priced from $33 to $40 ($30 on Cheap Tuesdays) and may be purchased through Fringetix.
All This Time highlights include some of the band's finest arrangements to date; a gorgeous doo-wop rendition of 80s classic Electric Dreams, a sublime mash-up pairing The Joker with Whitesnake's Here I Go Again and an all-vocal big band swing version of Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water.
As seen on Spicks and Specks, The Morning Show and Today Tonight, these charmingly British a cappella stars are literally a 'six-man sound machine'. Their glorious vocal harmonies, jaw-dropping beatboxing and stylishly choreographed routines have made them a must see act on the international festival scene, and they return to Adelaide on a high following a successful world tour promoting their new album All This Time.
Virtuosi beatboxer Andy Frost takes centre-stage for a show-stopping mouth drumming solo during Paolo Nutini's Pencil Full of Lead, while the band showcase their song-writing talents with a selection of award-winning original numbers.

As funny as they are musically talented, The Magnets are suitable for all ages having paid their dues as a student group and street performers through to a major record deal with EMI and over a decade of international touring. They have supported artists such as Blondie, Bryan Adams and Tom Jones and performed private shows for heads of state, supermodels and royalty. Regular contributors on the BBC, they have also been seen and heard across radio and television internationally as well as featuring on the YouTube viral T-Mobile Welcome Back commercial.
All This Time is The Magnets fourth studio album and their first on Wrasse Records, supported by a world tour that has taken the band from New Zealand to New York. The Magnets present simply great music, simply with the mouth.
