The Magnets

I hesitate to describe The Magnets as an a cappella band, because I am still not entirely convinced there was not a full band on stage. However, they assure you that every sound you hear comes from some part of their body. With exquisite harmonies and an electric atmosphere, they perform an impressive set using nothing but their voices. Filled with energetic choreography, The Magnets present a show with all the charm of a boy band but with twice the talent.The setlist is eclectic, including numbers from Bon Jovi to Florence and the Machine. The Magnets have the incredible ability to take an overly familiar song and breathe new life into it. Their rendition of Adele’s ‘Rolling In the Deep’ made me fall back in love with the song and the fantastic beatboxing in the middle is second to none. Dynamic doesn’t even begin to describe this show. The movement is highly effective and precise and everything complements the songs, and even the lighting adds to the performance. The six members each get an opportunity to shine and each rises to the occasion superbly as their personalities bubble through. Veteran fans greeted their mega medley and A-Z of movie theme songs with much enthusiasm. It was hard to find people not jumping up from their seats.With their infectious charm and range of songs, The Magnets showcase their impressive array of talents brilliantly. Though it is slightly annoying when members of the audience behind you sing along, it is impossible to fault their enthusiasm. The atmosphere emanating from the stage throughout the performance is impossible to resist.

Reviews by Nicole Adam

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
