The Penguin Cafe was formed by Simon Jeffes. After struggling for some time to discover his calling, Simon founded the Penguin Cafe with the soul purpose of making music. 

Now Arthur Jeffes has brought together music from the Penguin Cafe, playing the sounds of his father Simon Jeffes and combining it with their own. The ensemble that Arthur has drawn together around him are about the same age as the original members of the PCO and will be playing a number of high profile festivals this Summer including The Big Chill and Bestival.

The Penguin Cafe's quintessentially English music was informed by a celtic, bluegrass and South American music. Giles Farnaby's Dream, a superb finale at the concerts, was a 16th century tune given a hoedown treatment. Probably their best-knwn numbers were the oddly addictive Telephone and Rubber Band, a tune which inevitably ended up on an ad for monile phones, and the wonderful Music for a Found Harmonium.
