The world's funniest string quartet that burst the boundaries of the traditional string quartet with their hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy cabaret show.


16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices with 1 aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating for everyone, young and old. Graffiti Classics burst the elitist boundaries of the traditional string quartet with their hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy show. It's a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set and a brilliant dance show all rolled into one! From Beethoven to Bluegrass, Baroque to Pop, Mozart or Offenbach to Elvis, Strauss to Saturday Night Fever, there really is something for everyone and Graffiti Classics never fail to get audiences laughing, clapping and singing along. Kids and adults alike love the uplifting and virtuosic variety of musical styles, all tied together with cheeky audience interaction.

Graffiti Classics were founded by Irishman Cathal Ó Dúill whilst street-performing in Covent Garden. He realised that classical music could be made fun for everyone through interaction and comedy. Having honed their craft on London's streets, Graffiti Classics have developed a world-class virtuosic show that offers a wickedly refreshing alternative to the stuffy elitist perception of classical concerts. The band are now in hot demand all over the world and the show is loved by everyone, whatever their age and musical inclination.

Graffiti Classics have a large international following, having performed regularly across the globe. Graffiti's versatile show provides the ideal entertainment at a huge variety of events, with appearances ranging from festivals, cruise-ships and concert halls to prisons, hospitals and schools; from weddings and parties to theatres and corporate events.

During the COVID-19 restrictions, Graffiti Classics perfected socially-distanced shows and launched their Playground Proms workshops for schools, including music from the BBC 10 Pieces.
