One of the UK's leading jazz a cappella groups, the Oxford Gargoyles are embarking on their debut Hong Kong-Macau tour this March. They're known for their black-tie charm and their impeccable jazz numbers, as well as the occasional pop rendition—although without all the drama of "Glee." You can catch them in the myriad locations throughout Hong Kong until April, including the HK City Hall (Mar 24), Fringe Club (Mar 26, 28-29), Grappa's Cellar (Mar 23), Backstage Live (Mar 21), and even at the Rugby Sevens.
