Any show by Graffiti Classics will leave you with a smile on your face - sixteen strings, eight dancing feet and four voices. Not gypsy, not jazz - not traditional, not classical - but scintillatingly slap-stick with brilliant arrangements and mischievous humour. Every item in the programme reveals a unique talent - displayed in amazing individual and group performances with an exciting choreographed presentation.
Founded in 1997 by four young professional musicians, who met whilst busking in Covent Garden, London, the groups unique style has developed a refreshing insight into the world of classical music for everyone, whatever their age. They have appeared many times at the National Concert Hall, Whelans, the Gaiety Theatre, the Sugar Club, the Trinity Ball in Dublin and in 2001 they were honoured to play for the Irish President for the switching on of her Christmas tree lights. In Britain, Graffiti Classics have entertained extensively at many prestigious venues including London's Hippodrome, London's Transport Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington Palace, Bush Hall, London, Cambridge and Oxford Balls, Nottingham City Hall, Leeds Football Club and notably the Queens Jubilee baton relay for the Commonwealth Games in Oxford. Since their debut on 'The Late Late Show' with Gay Burne in 1998, the group have been in regular demand on TV and radio featuring on Lyric FM, The Gay Burne Hour, The Saturday Show, Live at Three, PM Live, Open House and Den 2.
"I would like to thank you and all the members from Graffiti Classics for your wonderful performance at the reception at Aras an Uachtaráin on Thursday, 18 September, 2003. I greatly appreciate the contribution you made to our event in terms of talent and time." - Mary McAleese, President Of Ireland
