Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer
Chap Hop returns to our spiffing basement beneath the jolly fine streets of Chelmsford.
From deepest darkest Surrey, and with a decade of gentlemanly catterwalling under his belt, Mr.B brings you Chap-Hop, re-acquainting Hip-Hop with the Queen's English from whence it came. His legendary live recitals have earned him plaudits, largely from top shelf gentlemen's quarterlies.
Interests & Influences: Tea, pipe smoking, cricket, uprocking, poetry (that rhymes) and a damned good suit! De La Soul, Flanders & Swann, Noel Coward and George Formby!
Prepare to laugh...prepare to dance!!!
