Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer to return to Cambridge's Town and Gown





From its humble beginnings in Surrey, Mr B has taken Chap-Hop – essentially hip-hop with manners and the Queen’s English – to Europe, the US, Japan and even the Arctic circle.

Its main proponent is Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, who has been doing his thing now for 15 years. This Friday and Saturday (April 1-2), the owner of the most famous moustache in rap - known for such musical masterpieces as Dammit It Feels Good to be a Chap, Three Piece Suit and Sneakers, Straight Outta Surrey, and Just Like A Chap - will be appearing at Town and Gown in Market Passage, Cambridge.

Mr B, who counts Michael Gove MP among his fans, says: “I’m delighted to return to the Town and Gown – it was the only proper, indoor show I played in between the first two lockdowns.

“That was another two-nighter and it was obviously odd, as people had to sit apart in masks, but somehow we made it a communal experience between us as we whispered our sing-alongs together. Another two-night run means I get to be a flâneur around the beautiful city too.”

He adds: “No two shows are exactly the same, so why not come along to both nights, what?”
