Have a laugh with the Ballpoint Penguins, 3 fine voices doing original and popular comic songs with verve and wry style in and around Perth, Western Australia.
Their original songs tackle life's really important questions: The battle of the sexes, the quest for self-actualisation, and what a woman really what's when getting a haircut. Quirky finds and classics—from Monty Python to Tom Paxton to Queen to Rogers & Hammerstein, get the close harmony treatment.
Mostly Ball Point Penguins perform a cappella (unaccompanied), but they mix things up with a bit of guitar sometimes, especially when throwing in the odd pop song or soulful ballad.
Impotence, vegetarians, religion, no topic is sacred, but everything's handled with a light touch. Ball Point Penguins harmonise in pop, gospel, blues and barbershop styles.
The Ballpoint Penguins are the ideal entertainers for festivals and events they are fun but classy. On stage or roving from table to table, they will add an elegant but light-hearted air to your function.
Since forming in mid-2003, The Ball Point Penguins have performed at Fremantle Festival, Fairbridge Festival, the Nannup Music Festival, Spring in the Valley, Darlington Arts Festival, and other festivals, wineries, clubs and private functions.
