Old Salopians return to Edinburgh Fringe with 'All the King's Men'

Wednesday 6 July 2011

OS Chris JamiesonChris Jamieson (G 2009) and Henry Southern (G 2008), both now in their second year at King's College London, are part of an all-male a cappella band 'All the King's Men' that was formed when they were Freshers in 2009. Having both twice been to the Fringe during their time at Shrewsbury School with 'Harry!' and 'The Bubble', they returned to the Fringe in 2010 with their new band to tremendous acclaim. 

In their own words:

Fresh from a successful USA tour, Voice Festival UK award winners All the King’s Men is back! Following their sell-out 2010 Fringe debut, King’s College London’s premier a cappella group return with a show of boundless energy, a diverse selection of music and entertaining choreography, all seasoned with humour and mischief. This is a regal performance fit for a king!

OS Henry SouthernAll the King's Men has always been more than just a student group. They consistently dazzle audiences fueling their passion and confidence at venues such as the IndigO2 Arena, the Royal Festival Hall, super-club SEOne, the BT Tower and New York's Time Square.

 “Strikingly flawless entertainment. An amazing show from the kings of King's!” (Roar – King’s College London Student Paper)

A year on from their highly successful Edinburgh Fringe debut with ‘All the King’s Men – Picking up the Pieces’, these Men have achieved national and international acclaim – most notably during their sensational East Coast USA Tour this Spring and winning performances at the Voice Festival-UK 2011 student a cappella competition (National Finalists and “Best Performance” award winners) – establishing themselves as one of the UK's top a cappella groups.

“‘Picking up the Pieces’ is an hour of unrelentingly energetic, feel good performance.”  (

Proving themselves on the international stage, All the King’s Men are ready to entertain and charm the discerning Edinburgh audiences once again. This is not your normal a cappella show! All the King’s Men skillfully combine musical excellence and infectious energy into their performances. They perform their own musical arrangements of a wide variety of popular tunes ranging from Stevie Wonder and Coldplay to Aerosmith and the Spice Girls. One thing is guaranteed: the audience will leave smiling and totally entertained.

“I'm a new woman after today’s performance!”  (
