The travelling circus that is the Lonely Hearts Rugby Clwb plays extraordinary music from around the world along with compositions from the bottom of James Clark’s heart. Expect an uplifting, unsettling, uncontrollably fun set of music played by 20 lonely people with humungous hearts.
The Lonely Hearts Rugby Clwb is a spirited team of 20 musicians playing music from Bulgaria to Brazil via Wales and South Africa in their PE kits. This unstoppable force is a big band like no other featuring instruments of all shapes and sizes from saxophones to euphonium, tuba to squeaky chicken and cowbells to alarm clocks. You might find yourself dancing with ‘Goodbye Eye Contact Cat’ or singing along to ‘I am the squid pope’ whilst James Clark referees the calamity.
This bursting-at-the-seams big band is an uncontainable expression of exuberance. Of love of life and friendship. Just as a team goes onto a rugby pitch not knowing how they are going to return, the Lonely Hearts Rugby Clwb goes on stage without a clue what’s going to happen next. Their performances are full of surprises, unpredictable and explosive. They are an adorable, bombastic commotion.
