It was a pleasure to have you perform at The Vault / Putney Pies on Wednesday 8th June. May I ask… If the band were a pie…what would it be?
That’s a great question… We would be a chocolate pie because chocolate is a natural aphrodisiac.
Than you, we look forward to having you back at The Vault in the future.
