From start to finish, an evening with the kings of Musical Comedy will have you laughing uncontrollably. Five very eccentric English Gentlemen playing between them some 20 conventional instruments and some not so conventional.

Their show is a complete mixture of styles from the late great Spike Jones and his City Slickers & the Firehouse Five right through the whole musical spectrum from the 20's to the 90's. With parodies of Roy Orbison and The Blues Brothers and with a little bit of "Classical Music" thrown in for good measure, this all adds up to an evening of pure honest fun and entertainment.
