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.

'effortlessly got everyone dancing in the State Dining Room... their (officially vetoed!) 'Me And My Shadow' parody received a raucous reception... they were the highlight of the evening.’ ?- No. 10 Downing Street

‘performers at our galas have included Edward Fox, Robert Bathurst and Alexander Armstrong... the need to 'get it right' for both the fundraising and 600 audience is of the utmost importance… Getting it right was exactly what Bounder & Cad did!’ ?- Jane A, Friends of Sussex Hospices

'B&C's bespoke song for my wife's 50th at Highclere Castle made her laugh and cry at the same time... I cannot recommend them highly enough. My advice: book them.'? - Tim H, CEO 

'Challenged to write a Brexit song for my husband's 50th at Dartmouth House, B&C played an absolute blinder - brilliant rhymes, wonderful singing and terribly charming to boot. Encore!' - Sarah B

'Writing a song about the SNP to entertain a bunch of finance execs is a rather tall order, but B&C rose to it brilliantly - and they even pulled off an eye-wateringly-funny song starring Angela Merkel!' - Alan K (commissioned two songs for parties at the Reform Club)

'These boys are truly talented. They made a wonderful evening into a very, very special one, with a song dedicated to my wife for her 60th. I couldn’t recommend them more highly - and I'd be very happy to do so personally to anyone interested in booking them.' - David C
