British multivocalist, musician and comedian Darren Foreman, better known as Beardyman, will be bringing his beatboxing and live looping skills to Tel Aviv’s Barby Club on January 12.
Described by the BBC as the “King of Sound, Ruler of Beats,” Beardyman produces all his live shows from scratch, letting the audience choose the genre and help develop the track.
Foreman was given the nickname “Beardyman” because a name was quickly needed for a flyer for an early show, and he had a beard at the time.
In 2006 Beardyman battled to become UK Beatbox Champion and retained his title in 2007, making him the first beatboxer in UK history to win two championships in a row. He has recorded with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Groove Armada and Jack Black and Fatboy Slim. His track with the latter, “Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat,” was a global smash and reached No. 1 in the charts, beating One Direction. His YouTube videos have garnered millions of views, notably his Kitchen Diaries
, where he combines beatboxing with cooking.For tickets and more info visit www.barby.co.il.
