Do you offer any optional extras? If so, what are they and why should people book them?

Favourite sing a long song?
“‘Come on Eileen’ by Dexys Midnight Runners gets the dance floor shaking!”
What inspired you to be musicians?

“Our singer was once set upon by an absolutely enormous moth! Luckily no person or animal ended up being harmed in any way haha.”
If you weren’t musicians, what would you be doing?
