WIN tickets to see Funbox
The Funbox gang are back and having a hootenanny in Fort William with their brand new show for 2017, Highland Fling. It has been non - stop for Funbox since their first show in 2015, and now the former Singing Kettle trio have eight shows, six DVDs, five CDs and 24 costumes to their name as they embark on their ninth tour in two years. When it was made clear that the Singing Kettle was not for sale, Gary, Anya and Kevin took their first steps into business. Gary said: ‘ 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. Our Pirates and
Princesses tour was funded out of our own pockets and a Crowdfunding campaign that saw us raise more than 20k in four 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 for the children 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 the DVD recording of our other tour at Glasgow SEC back in February, Underwater
Adventure. So here’s hoping there’s a few big people in their finest kilts and tam o’shanters for this one!’ laughs Kevin.
Take the high road (or the low road) and get roamin’ in the gloamin’ for Funbox’s brand new show, Highland Fling.
Join Gary, Anya and Kevin as they take a trip to around Scotland to battle midgies, become monarchs of the glen and hear the skirl of the bagpipes in their latest singalong adventure. There’s silliness galore and songs to sing in this crazy new show for 2017.
You’ll need to help us get the Funbox open – which contains everything you need to sing a song or have an adventure – but which of our bonnie wee keys should we use?
You may even be lucky enough to help the gang on stage!
Packed with family favourites such as Did you ever see a Lassie?, The Green Grass grew, and Ye cannae shove yer Granny, as well as brand new songs, Highland Fling is the perfect treat for youngsters of all ages – from nought to 90! And if yer gallus enough you might even get a chance to help us on stage! Highland Fling is at the Nevis Centre, Fort William, on Sunday July 2, at 1pm.
