Hello Gentlemen! Thinking about joining our choir?

The Raff Pack is a male singing group, mainly singing pop and rock songs with beer and banter.
If you're interested, please REGISTER INTEREST below and we'll invite you
along to a taster session so you can see what we're all about.

What we do

We're like a Yorkie... not for girls! So gents, come and join the hoi palloi and the riffraff at The Raff Pack, Bristol's male voice choir.

We're a men's singing group, which sings pop & rock in 3 or 4 part harmony, with a few other genres thrown in for fun (e.g. barbershop, sea shanties, folk). We're taught and conducted by Douglas V. Watts.

You don't need to be able to read music: all the voice parts are taught by ear, and word sheets and audio tracks are provided to practise with. There's no audition and you won't be asked to sing alone, it's all about having fun singing and enjoying yourself!


Like to join?

We'd love to have you!

We accept everyone of the male persuasion: tall, short, bearded, clean-shaven, gay, straight, ale-lovers, teetotallers...

We're a friendly bunch: we don't just sing, we laugh a lot too, and have regular socials - some just us boys and some with our sister choir, Riff Raff.

If you like singing and fancy giving us a try, please fill in the REGISTER INTEREST form, so we have all your contact information, and we'll send you a confirmation email with further details.
