The thirteen Oxford men are back with their smooth acapella and loose choreography. I always make time to see them each year, and they again brought tears to my eyes with their harmonies and camaraderie. Normally I give them five stars, but this year’s selection of songs had fewer songs that I knew than ever before.

It is early in the Fringe, and I have seen 58 shows of the around 160 I will see. So far, this was the 6th most enjoyable I have seen at the Fringe this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: https://fringefan.com/

Another excellent show. Slick, polished and thoroughly entertaining as always. One of our must see shows every year. Never disappointed. 5* well done.

Spectacular!!! Don’t miss them. Made me want to attend nothing but a cappella choirs for the rest of the Fringe!

Still a reliably enjoyable show - have seen previous year’s line-ups. A couple of fun sound twists this year. Good for all-ages as an energetic spot in a Fringe menu.

Absolutely brilliant! I've seen a handful of acapella groups over the years but these guys are in their own league. Well worth a look if you are in town

The Gordon Aitken Theatre is a great venue for this show. This was their first show of this year's Fringe but as well polished as I am sure it will be throughout August. Well worth a visit and even the children in the audience seemed to enjoy it.
