Ladies and gentlemen please take your seats, for soon you will hear music mellow and sweet.
A band of three brothers whose sound is well known, on vocals, guitar and smooth saxophone.
They’ve played their soul music all over the sands, and gained a huge mob of adoring jazz fans.
Many have gathered to hear Michael croon, including hyenas and blues mad baboons.
The same for young Larkin whose skill on guitar, has hogs and hares smitten from towns near and far.
And then there is Charlie. His alto sax tunes cause gemsboks and cheetahs to sway and to swoon.
Hush now and listen on this moonlit night, to sounds I am sure will thrill and delight,
as three jazzy brothers get ready to play, until the dawn comes to herald the day!
