'Straight Out of Surrey' Mr B. The Gentleman Rhymer is a rapper from a more sophisticated age.

The dapper, flamboyantly moustached musician raps  - or rather 'rhymes' - his way through such cutting issues as dressing with style, good manners, pipe smoking and cricket -  all accompanied by his ukulele.

And it's hilarious.

Tonight, Friday, November 3, he brings his eloquent show to Oxford's Jericho Tavern on his National Treasure Tour.

We last saw him dispensing dapper wisdom at the New Theatre as special guest of Sparks - with whom he also performed two nights at the Royal Albert Hall).

It comes as he releases his latest long player, National Treasure, follow up to such gems as Quid Pro Flow, Flattery Not Included, The Tweed Album, There's a Rumpus Going On and Dandinista.

Launching his 'chap-hop' career in the summer of 2007 he has since taken his invented musical form around the the world, from Surrey to Osaka, Banstead to Berlin, Middlesbrough to Minneapolis, Norway to New York and the Edinburgh Fringe to Glastonbury bringing his beats, rhymes and manners... and songs about high society and interfering with livestock.

He has rapped for Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight; played live on BBC Radio One for Rob Da Bank, Nick Grimshaw and Scott Mills; on Radio Two for Claudia Winkleman and Steve Lamacq;  6Music for Tom Robinson and Shaun Keanveny; and for Zoe Ball on Sky Arts.

He has seen his elegant form featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and was described by the Daily Mail as ‘Controversial’.

His next album ‘National Treasure’ is released today.

See Mr B. The Gentleman Rhymer tonight, Friday November 3, at the Jericho Tavern Oxford
