It’s all happening down here in the Festival State. Fringe season is upon us and we at the Statesmen are hard at work preparing our latest show: Pretty Boys! This really is the biggest, most complicated thing we’ve done as an ensemble, developing a musical from scratch, arranging and choreographing the songs in-house, and using an entirely original script written by one of our own members: Mitre Khammash. The show will be staged at Tandanya in the East End of Adelaide and tickets are available at

But just because we’re attempting something huge doesn’t mean we’re not hard at work doing other things as well. You may have noticed on facebook that we’ve released a new music video! If you missed our small ensemble’s winning performance at Vocal Australia’s AUS-ACA championships last year you can finally have a look for yourself at the Festival Statesmen performing Canned Heat by Jamiroquai at

Make sure you stay tuned because we have plenty more videos up our sleeve, and we have a lot of exciting news regarding tours and performances that we can’t wait to let you in on once the Fringe is done!
