What is all this 'Geoff/Jeff' stuff people keep mentioning? Who are all these Geoffs, and what is their significance to Elbow?

Southbank Centre is looking for confident male singers to be part of a Male Choir that will perform on the RFH stage with Elbow as part of their Meltdown show on 16 June.



We are looking for quick learners, who can hold harmonies, and would be thrilled about singing live on stage in front of audience of over 2,500 alongside the band themselves.



Anyone who is serious about wanting to take part should email voicelab@southbankcentre. co. uk by Tuesday 3 June, and must be able to commit to an audition on the morning of Saturday 7 June, and daytime rehearsals across Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 June at Southbank Centre.



The choir will be directed by Mary King, of Channel 4's Operatunity fame and one of the world's finest voice trainers, and is part of an ongoing performance and training initiative at Southbank Centre called Voicelab.



"Three of Elbow are of Welsh descent.

This has been a long time coming" - Guy Garvey

Guy called them collectively, 'Geoff' when they came on stage as they were all dressed similarly, with hats, like his
....he originally called some out of tune notes at the Apple store gig 'Geoff' aswell!
