The Barron Knights

They are back and by popular demand! 
 
Masters of musical comedy parody, The Barron Knights are probably one of the most entertaining groups to come out of the 60s and 70s. Their musicianship, their harmonies and of course their humour has given them the nickname of ‘The Guvnors’.
 
You can expect to hear lots of new material as well as old favourites like Call Up the Groups, as well as the band’s inimitable version of The William Tell Overture and their Flamenco party piece, Malaguana
