Barnstorming gig at The Barn


What a great night at the newly re-vamped The Barn Theatre in Cirencester!

A re-invigorated venue and a huge leap forward for the local scene, much as was the blokes' performance from their last performance at the Barn.

Some cracking moments including a killer version of one of our newest songs about the travails of men in the 21st century which brought the house down and resulted in a deserved encore.

Well done to all who worked so hard to make it happen.  Here's to many more excellent acts treading the boards and now it is officially time to say "Roll on a Magnificent Yuletide!"

Three Word Friday - Gig nearly sold-out

Pedant's amongst you should not only read to the end of this article but acknowledge that "Gig nearly sold-out" counts as a three worder by dint of playing the "Hyphon Card".

Whichever way you spell it, we are very close to selling out to the point where we are having to withdraw the option to purchase through the Tourist Information Centre in favour of just using our website.

It seems that some last minute surge following the article in the Wilts and Gloucs Standard and piece on Corinium Radio has nearly tipped us over the edge.



So, to secure your tickets you will have to very quickly head http://www.themagnificentak47.com/tickets/...

And for the pendants who have read down this far, we know who you are and say "bless you" and thank goodness for the misappropriation of apostrophe's!

The Magnificent calendar is back!


After an absence of a couple of years, The Magnificent AK47 calendar is back and being launched for sale this coming Saturday 19th November at our gig at The Barn, Cirencester amid great excitement (at least amongst us).

It features more than a dozen fabulous photos taken over the past months by various members of the group and has been stitched together under the expert and enthusiastic care of Chris A and DR Sweeney.

From sneak previews that have been seen it is going to look quite, er, Magnificent and will be an ideal Yuletide celebration gift - just email us on themagnificentak47@gmail.com for how to purchase or come along to the "Launch Party" at our gig, The Return to the Barn, Cirencester.  Secure your tickets if you have yet to do so quickly by heading to http://www.themagnificentak47.com/tickets/ or go in person to Cirencester Tourist Information Centre in the Corinium Museum in Cirencester or call 01285 654 180.

More Magnificent Radio


We are due to be on the radio again!  This time it is one of our very own local stations, Radio Corinium, are scheduling a piece from an interview between Ashton Keynes's very own special correspondent, Martin "Nic" Nichols and one of the prime instigators of The Magnificent AK47, Neil Burston.

We have been told that the piece is due to go our this afternoon in the "Town Crier" show some time after 12:30 - more information can be found at http://www.coriniumradio.co.uk/programmes/ and we will keep you posted when we know more.

Would you trust your evening's entertainment to this lot?


Would you trust your evening's entertainment to the likes of these 'ornery 'ombres?

Well, a few lucky people at Bath's rather Magnificent Old Theatre Royal did... and to great impact with the rather lovely and sparkly Sassperella who joined us for a rather wonderful rendition of that great Russian flirting song that we just happen to have in our repertoire for just such an occasion.

Judge for yourself by listening to the "Sound of Testosterone" melding together with the ladies to make the "Sound of Flirting".

For your chance to see us at The Return to the Barn, Cirencester quickly head to http://www.themagnificentak47.com/tickets/ or go in person to Cirencester Tourist Information Centre in the Corinium Museum in Cirencester or call 01285 654 180.

Everything you read about us is true, apparently


Another lovely piece of press about us and our Magnificent Return to the Barn Theatre this coming Saturday 19th November.  

Can't think quite why it is so lovely... but it is corroborated by the Editor's comments at the very end of the piece, so it must all be true!  Click on the article above to see it at a readable size.

Just rewards



Smiling like a cat that has just been given the whole of Cheshire on a stick with cream and cherries on top, one happy ChoirMeister!

Seen here with Big Chief Effing John and a unique bottle of Whiskey that was personalised in Bushmills Distillery on our epic weekend in #MagnificentDerry as you can see below.

Is that a slightly smug and everso pleased looking ChoirMeister?  

We think so!  

And deservedly so for conducting us with such gusto all the long few days on a trip that we will never forget until we can't quite remember any more...
