Their first proper gig was the Sense and Sensibility wrap party in front of a Hollywood cast list including Kate Winslett, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman . This was followed by two nights at the Edinburgh Festival.

Their biggest performance to date was on behalf of Comic Relief in a live show called The Empire Strikes Back. They have since performed with a number of comedy and musical guests.
