This show is packed full of hits such as Calendar Girl, Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Amarillo, Stupid Cupid, The Diary, Laughter in the Rain and of course Oh! Carol.

He will make you shout for more…
Drums and Percussion, Martin is the undisputed backbone of the band, always has a lovely time as long as he has a cuppa tea.
Mr Silky Steve is well known for his many Guitars and impressive pedal board. A keen hoarder of ties.
We love the smooth sounds from our Bass man. The guy with the accent, wakes up ridiculously early.
