Bust out those arm bands, shimmy on your scuba gear and dive in with Funbox as the tide sweeps them back to Paisley with their brand new show for 2017, UNDERWATER ADVENTURE.
Its been non stop for FUNBOX since their first show in 2015, and now the former Singing Kettle trio have 8 shows, 6 DVDs, 5 CDs and 24 costumes to their name as they embark on their ninth tour in 2 years. When it was made clear that the Singing Kettle was not for sale, Gary, Anya and Kevin 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 Gary. “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.” The gang admit they were having far too much fun working together and entertaining families of Scotland and beyond to say goodbye. Anya remarked “We wanted to carry on, not just for us but the 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”.
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. “We’ve been described as fresh and edgier than before. Even the big people are enjoying it! We spotted a few grown up mermaids and deep sea divers at our DVD recording at Glasgow SEC back in February.” laughs Kevin.
Take the plunge with Gary, Anya and Kevin (the stars formerly of The Singing Kettle) for their all new show for 2017 – UNDERWATER ADVENTURE where they voyage beneath the waves to the bottom of the ocean. There’s some-fin fishy going on in their latest singalong ‘tail’ – the FUNBOX is locked and the gang will have to cause a splash because their magical keys are all tucked up in the sea bed. Fluffy and Flossie the Funsters will be diving in to lend a hand and of course everyone’s favourite salty sea dog; Bonzo will be joining the aquatic action, but has he packed his trunks, snorkel and rubber ring?
Packed with familiar favourites like ‘When the Boat comes in’, ‘The World must be coming tae an’End’ and ‘Hole at the Bottom of the Sea’ as well as brand new songs, UNDERWATER ADVENTURE is the perfect swimalong singalong treat for kids of all ages from nought to ninety! You might even cause a splash on stage with us!
Dress up for the sea and join in the fun. You’ll have a whale of a time!
Paisley Town Hall, Sunday 14 May, 1pm and 3.30pm
