Sanditen is at once understated and a bit mischievous……his attention to the lyrics turns each song into a story whose melody is familiar, but the tale itself is new to your ears. -Front Row Center
I host the über-popular monthly Harold Sanditen’s Open Mic Party – the longest running show at the Crazy Coqs in London – now in its 10th year. Doors open at 8.45 pm for sign ups, and the show runs from 9.15 pm to 11.15 pm. We have some amazing talent, and at £17.50 admission, it has to be the best value entertainment in London!
Regular musicians are Carl Greenwood on piano, Robert Rickenberg on bass and Jonathan “Kitch” Kitching on drums.
“if you’re looking to get a taste of the stage, or if you’d just like a great night out in London, you can’t get much better than this”

“One of the best virtual variety shows to be found online”
Originally scheduled for April 2020, the show was postponed to April 2021 (but it never happened) and is now happening on 8 October, 7pm, in London.
GRAB YOUR MARACAS AND BONGOS! Harold’s FINALLY back with a brand new show. Over the past eight years, Harold Sanditen, charismatic host of Crazy Coqs’ longest-running show, his smash Open Mic Party (now in its 10th year,) has been performing around the globe, both live and virtually, amassing new audiences and absorbing new forms of musical expression along the way – a smattering of country and western from his native Oklahoma, the romantic wheeze of a Parisian concertina, the rhythmic abandon of a bouzouki on a beach in Mykonos, and the sexy sway of a Brazilian samba. In Sanditen’s inimitable style, you’ll hear each song in a new light, with exceptional and unique arrangements. This highly rhythmic celebration guarantees irresistible toe-tapping fun.
