    One of our friends is turning 21 on Monday next week, and although it’s fairly short notice we were wondering if there was any kind of service you provide where you would be willing to get to her office and sing happy birthday?

  8. Hello,

    I am looking for a Barber Shop Quartet to take part in some filming on the 10th August. It is for James May’s Man Lab and will be broadcast on BBC Two. We need would like yourself to reinterpret our theme tune, linked below, and then come and perform it at the end of the show. The filming would take a couple of hours in Earlsfield in South West London. I am sorry for such short notice but it is very much something James and our director Tom have decided they would love to do. You will be broadcast on BBC2 and will be playing out one of the shows, the tune will not have lyrics so you would be humming in a Barber Shop Quartet style.

    Man Lab theme tune

    Is this something you would be able to help us with?

    Regards

    Rory
