The Dead Victorians is a music hall comedy show providing a sing-a-long show in the finest British tradition.
Performing upon a positive plethora of musical instruments and accessories: Accordion, double bass, helicon tuba, slide trombone and bombardon, cornet, tenor ukulele, typewriter, spoons, bells, finger whistles (in that order), sheep and singing songs around the good old pianoforte.
This is a very interactive show, with all the lads in full costume and character throughout. Maestro Paul Tkachenko, Dr. Matty Blake, Rupert and Mr. Sandiford have performed in practically every situation you can imagine and some that you couldn’t, or perhaps ought not to.
The Dead Victorians were the house band for the award winning show ‘The Masque of the Red Death’ that sold out for 9 months at Battersea Arts Centre. As well as shows for Whoopee club, White Mischief and at the Blackpool Wintergardens, the chaps have presented their show to many pubs, private parties and weddings.Read more
