Richie Webb stars as performance shy cocktail pianist Nigel Penny.

Nigel Penny's attempts to live his life in the background are thwarted by the surprise arrival of his entrepreneurial half-brother, Pav (Paul G Raymond). Pav hooks Nigel up with desperate wannabe singer Rachel (Jess Robinson) and strong-arms the pair onto the books of his fledgling entertainment agency.

With a gig at a Carpenters-themed wedding on the horizon, Nigel has to contend not only with his job at an Italian Restaurant run by a probably-not-an-actual-Italian, but also with Pav's mysterious new Ukrainian friend, Stan (Dave Lamb), and some disturbing news about his new musical partner.
