TWO former members of defunct Tamworth band the Lounge Lizards are planning to form a new reggae band – with the emphasis on fun.

Ha Ha Ha and the Fruit Cakes will be hitting the local stages sometime during the summer if the plans of ex-Lizard Richard Bujak and “Chip” are realised.

And you could be part of the HHHFC set-up. The two founder members are looking for musicians to join the band.

“We are particularly looking for a drummer and a bass player although sax players and flautists and really anyone who plays anything will be welcome,” said Chip.

The philosophy behind the new outfit is “instant music”. Whatever your instrument you can go along and join in.

The band are hoping to organise a gig at Tamworth’s Arts Centre in the next few weeks, playing mostly their own self-penned reggae material.

“Nothing like this has been seen in Tamworth before. We have been practising for the last few weeks, and now we’re looking forward to doing more gigs,” said Richard.

Anyone interested in becoming part of HHHFC should give Richard a call.

These guys may be as nutty as fruit cake, but they’ve got the right ingredients to serve up some tasty music!
