You'll have to forgive James.
He won't be on his best form
as he had a disaster the
other week. Having left his
banjo in the car he returned
to find some terrible person
had broken in,
and left another one!
Gerry had a bit of
bad luck last wednesday.
His library burnt down.
Both books were burnt.
And he hadn't finished
colouring one of them.

Dirty bopper with no fixed abode.
Combining the finest jazz musicianship with humour and devilish flair, this magnificent ensemble names influences as wide as Spike Jones & his City Slickers, the Mnozil Brass, Monty Python's Flying Circus, and the Electro Swing Post Modern Jukebox movement.
The orchestra was formed after the gentlemen involved performed at a college speakeasy style showcase. They had so much fun they wanted to continue in a similar vein. So here they are, available for all events.

Someone who can play
the banjo but doesn't."
Mark says "How do you fix a broken tuba?
With a "tuba glue!"

take your shoes
off before you
jump on a trampoline."
Deep in the jungle, a safari was camped for the night. In the darkness, distant drums began a relentless throbbing that continued until dawn. The safari members were disturbed, but the guide reassured them: "Drums good. When drums stop, very bad." Every night the drumming continued, and every night the guide reiterated, "Drums good. When drums stop, VERY bad." This continues for several days until one morning the drumming suddenly stops and all the natives panic and run screaming. The man asks the guide what's the matter? The guide looking very frightened says: "When drums stop, VERY, VERY bad," he said. "Why is it bad?" asked a member of the safari. "Because when drums stop, bass solo begin!"

Seemingly a nice chap on the surface, Tim is actually completely devilish.
