More information about Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. & The Fancy Chaps tickets

Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. has been delivering his own brand of singalong, musical humour since 2016, and the video for his sweary anthem ‘I’ve No More F***s To Give’ has been viewed over 17 million times on YouTube alone, sending his debut album ‘Awkward

Encounters While Walking My Dog’ to number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Album Chart in 2019.

In 2023, he decided he needed a band of well groomed folk to accompany him on his travels around the country and join in with the mirth and merriment, so the Fancy Chaps were formed.

Thomas takes inspiration from the wit and wisdom of the songwriters of the early-mid 20th century and combines them with punk rock sensibilities to create pithy songs full of catchy tunes and social and political commentary that speak volumes about the times we live in.

Jangly-guitar rock and a biting sense of humour meet in the storytelling songs of Chris Tavener. A theatrical musician with an acerbic wit, Tavener writes his lyrics from the perspective of flawed characters that he draws from 21st century life.

His cynical social commentary, dressed in punchy guitar-driven rock and acoustic ballads has won him acclaim from BBC 6 Music and multiple BBC Introducing stations. He’s popular for his unique and theatrical live performance that has seen him sharing the stage with Super Hans, Tony Hadley and Peter Hook while also writing songs for the likes of Sir Ian McKellen.
