A Band’s Best Friend – The Getaway Plan



Behind every great band there’s an even cuter puppy, so it’s time to meet the loveable critters waiting to greet your favourite acts as they stumble through the door after a brutal bout of touring. From your typical cats and dogs to lizards and feathered friends, we’ll be treating you to the friendliest and furriest. Allow Matthew Wright and Clint Ellis from The Getaway Plan to introduce you to their furry felines Bob Marley and Saspa.
