Live From the Lounge

"Live from the lounge" is our weekly live-stream broadcast from our lounge (see what we did there?). It started back in April 2020 and who knows when it will finish. We alternate weekly between cover songs and originals and did the first thirty four weeks without repeating a song. That has now changed however, as we have scraped our barrel of original songs to such an extent that you can see daylight through the sides.
