Bounder & Cad: the musical comedy duo whose mischievous lyrics 10 Downing Street tried to censor…
Classically trained as Cambridge choristers, Adam Drew and Guy Hayward write and perform 'cheek-achingly funny' songs. Accompanied by their pianist genius, Ben Comeau (or even his toe-tapping trio, with double-bass and drums) they are guaranteed to ‘make' any party, and break many a discerning heart (lock up your great-aunts).
They made their London debut at the 10 Downing Street Christmas party. The song they wrote specially for the event was vetoed by the PM’s aides- but, after the audience insisted, it was performed, with chandelier-rattlingly riotous results.
Since then, they have been fast becoming the toast of the smartest parties across the land, and internationally. From Highclere Castle to the Onassis yacht Christina O, via Annabel’s, the Palazzo Corsini, and Cobblers Cove, Barbados.
For an unforgettable 48-carat cherry on the cake, they also offer ‘bespoke songs’ tailored to the occasion, sure to induce tears of laughter and joy.
Twice commissioned to write for BBC Radio, they have been featured by Classic FM and Jazz FM, and they are resident artists at Zédel, Piccadilly.
