‘Naughty…hugely enjoyable…in perfect harmony’ The Times A cacophony of song, ukuleles, spoon playing and gin Enter the jaded and threadbare world of Binkie, Maud, Poodle and Colin aka The Martini Encounter. Never refined but always eccentric, this naughty and flamboyant quartet celebrate their former ‘careers’ in what could very loosely be described as ‘showbiz’ whilst basking in glorious vocal close-harmony singing and a frequently surprising cocktail of mischievous repartee and banging toons from Talking Heads and Queen to Blur and Scissor Sisters via Bonnie Tyler and Lionel Bart, accompanied by their ukuleles, the Musical Saw, spoons and other alleged ‘instruments’. Following sensationally squiffy appearances at the Edinburgh, Glastonbury and Latitude Festivals, this hilarious and musically sublime quartet burst from London cabaret scene to inflict their shtick and their very small instruments upon the nation.
