About The Angels Of Kaos
The Angels Of Kaos began in 2003. More of a singing collective than a conventional choir, there is no conductor when they perform. There are 6 part-groups - Sopranos, Upper Middles, Lower Middles, Altos, Tenors, Baritones/Basses. All The Angels' arrangements are created especially for them by MD/Arranger/Piano Player, Suzy Davies:
"It's like having a great big harmonious toy to play with. Sometimes we keep it simple but every now and then we push the boat right out with more complex harmonies and rhythms"
Folk To Funk
The Angels embrace all styles of music and have an eclectic set list of guaranteed crowd pleasers along with songs that don’t get such regular airing. A typical set might include The Sweet Escape (Gwen Stefani), The Fields of Athenry (traditional), Tubthumping (Chumbawamba) and Love Machine (Smokey Robinson and The Miracles).
The Angels have played countless gigs in pubs, local events and festivals, including two Edinburgh Fringe festivals, once leading a 400-strong conga along the Royal Mile while singing Caravan Of Love. Their pre-pandemic residency at The Boogaloo on the Archway Road would inevitably descend into a joyful sing-and-dance-along with the audience, with more congas into the street and quite a lot of dancing on tables.
Their by-line is ‘audience participation not compulsory, but might be irresistible..!’
Having started in front rooms, then graduating through various pubs and clubs, The Angels now rehearse in the Transmitter Hall at Alexandra Palace - birthplace of the BBC.
