They became an internet sensation last year with a dancing grannies routine.

Performing a mash-up of Beyonce's Single Ladies and Flo Rida's Low at the Stourbridge Carnival, their video was shared more than 1.5 million times on Facebook.

They then released a calendar for this year featuring the grannies and other Fizzog faces in various siutations throughout last year.

More recently they have performed at local venues such as Wednesbury Town Hall and Midlands Arts Centre.
