16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices with 1 aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating for everyone, young and old. Graffiti Classics burst the elitist boundaries of the traditional string quartet with their hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy show. It's a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set and a brilliant dance show all rolled into one! From Beethoven to Bluegrass, Baroque to Pop, Mozart or Offenbach to Elvis, Strauss to Saturday Night Fever, there really is something for everyone and Graffiti Classics never fail to get audiences laughing, clapping and singing along. Kids and adults alike love the uplifting and virtuosic variety of musical styles, all tied together with cheeky audience interaction.
Graffiti Classics were founded by Irishman Cathal Ó Dúill whilst street-performing in Covent Garden. He realised that classical music could be made fun for everyone through interaction and comedy. Having honed their craft on London's streets, Graffiti Classics have developed a world-class virtuosic show that offers a wickedly refreshing alternative to the stuffy elitist perception of classical concerts. The band are now in hot demand all over the world and the show is loved by everyone, whatever their age and musical inclination. They have appeared on national TV and radio in the UK, Ireland and Spain, have performed right across there globe and were a finalist at the 2014 Irish Event Industry Awards in Dublin, being one of the acts chosen to perform live at the ceremony. More recently, Graffiti Classics have embarked on several tours to Taiwan, a two-week trip to Ireland and in January 2017 completed their first residency at the Bermuda Festival. They returned again to Taiwan in the summer of 2018 and toured mainland China in October.
