Bowjangles - Excalibow

at Dining Room, The Gilded Balloon

1st to 7th August 2019 at 5.30pm

Bowjangles are a string quartet who can really play. They dance whilst they play. They sing whilst they play. They leap, tumble, juggle and joke whilst they play.

Smash hit sell out in 2018. Returning by popular demand for just one very special week of shows at the Gilded Balloon

'Excalibow', originally commissioned to mark their 10-year anniversary in 2018, has Bowjangles tell the somewhat ludicrous story of their journey to find the most priceless relic of all- a mysterious violin bow known as Excalibow. You’ll love Bowjangles’ inimitable and unique style, full of laughs, boundless energy, and almost every musical genre you can imagine.

If you like music, song, dance and comedy, you will love Bowjangles. This multitalented four-piece not only play their instruments superbly, they leave their audience in stitches of laughter – and incredulous. Bowjangles use every style and genre of music you can imagine in energetic and hilarious stage shows which takes string quartet performance to a whole new dimension, and brings old style Music Hall Vaudeville into the 21st century.
