Whoosh! Bang! Kapow! Its time to grab those capes and warm up your super powers as FUNBOX returns to Paisley faster than a speeding bullet with their brand new show, SUPERHEROES!
Gary, Anya and Kevin are on a super quest to find their keys, open the locks and release the fun. Crime fighting Funster duo Fluffy and Flossie will be back to help us along the way and Bonzo will deliver his own brand of doggy justice! But who has taken their keys? What are the gang’s superpowers? And will Bonzo find pants that fit?!
FUNBOX is the brain child of Gary, Anya and Kevin (formerly of the Singing Kettle) who admit they were having far too much fun working together and entertaining families of Scotland and beyond to say goodbye. Gary remarked “We wanted to carry on, not just for us but kids who loved coming to see us and the parents and grandparents who wanted to take their children. It seemed like too important a thing to let go”.
When it was made clear that the Singing Kettle was not for sale the trio took their first steps into business. “We knew we could write songs, perform and make music, but none of us had any real experience of running a business. We just went into it head first.” says Kevin. “Our Pirates and Princesses tour was funded out of our own pockets and a Crowdfunding campaign that saw us raise over 20k in 4 weeks thanks to the support of our fans. We have been learning along the way which has been very hard work but so rewarding.”
FUNBOX offers the same traditional songs and silliness known and loved by many but with their own brand of manic humour with a modern twist, and due to popular demand and the success of their first tour Pirates and Princesses last year they have even had to add an extra show onto their Paisley dates. “We’ve been described as fresh and edgier than before and the whole family is getting involved. We had Mummy and Daddy superheroes and even Supergran herself was at our Glasgow SECC DVD recording back in February!” laughs Anya.
There’s favourite family singalongs like “The Quartermaster’s Store” and “Bunny Fou Fou”, brand new songs and silliness and even a chance or two to help on stage. SUPERHEROES is supersonic family fun and an exciting entertainment experience not to be missed. Remember to come dressed as a Superhero or make up your own!
