All aboard a ‘Sentimental Journey’ with The Close Shaves this Fringe. Formed in Brighton four years ago, they are the 21st century’s answer to the Andrews/Mcguire/Boswell Sisters with a cheeky modern twist. 

The Close Shaves bring you their unique ‘Female Barberswing’ sound with their sumptuous 3-part harmony arrangements of songs from the swing era and beyond. With the occasional ukelele and percussion thrown in, be prepared for these ladies to take you on a fun filled musical meander through swing land. 

This is a rare opportunity to catch this captivating trio live, after their sell out performances at the Brunswick and the Albert and a live appearance on ITV for the fringe launch. 

An hours show filled with cracking covers and irresistible singalong potential .One not to be missed!

Get yer tickets before the whistle blows!!



The Christmas Close Shaves train is about to come into town!!!!

Hello all !! 

Just to let you all know about the up and coming appearances from the Close Shaves over the next few months. 

We are very excited to be hosting our Christmas Gig-gle at the Prince Albert on Tuesday the 15th December at 8pm entry £8/6 . Fancy dress of a nativity theme is optional but you would be missing out on the chance of some serious prizes if you decided to be a boring old pudding and not get your festivity on! The wonderful Brighton Swing Choir and another very special guest will be joining in the fun and we hope you do too.

If you can't make that then we are also going to be heading over to the Con Club in Lewes two nights later on Thursday the 17th December  to support some wonderful performers for another festive filled evening. Details to follow on that one.

We are doing a fair amount of busking at the Open Market and Jubilee Square as well so i'm sure you'll spot our tinsel trimmed tushes and hear our ding dongs from on high at some point. 

Please come and support us and maybe even join in for a seasonal swing along !! 

We're going to be on the radio!!!

Tune in to radio reverb on Monday 30th at 6.30pm (The Pete Jones show) where we'll be singing a few songs and having a chat with Pete. We're also recording an interview with JUICE FM so will keep you posted on when this is going to be aired. Happy weekend y'all! 

We're back!

After a couple of months on "maternity leave" we've started rehearsing again! With some bookings in the pipe line keeping us busy, stay tuned for more updates on public gigs!
