Series 1, Episode 2
The band lands their first official gig playing at Adi's birthday party. But will they finally settle on a band name before the gig?
The band decides to rehearse at Eddie's house, for a change. And, for Jack, it's a chance to be near Eddie's gorgeous big sister, Lucy - not that she would even notice him. Phil, Jack's dad, is a bit miffed at first but, on the plus side, he gets to flirt with Sandy. Phil asks Sandy (Eddie's mum) out for a drink, but is surprised to learn that she has been invited over to Ashton and Carmen's place for dinner. Phil is suspicious that he has not been invited, too - could they be having a meeting about the band without him?
Meanwhile, Jack is horrified when his dad tells him he loves him, twice, in the space of 24 hours, especially as he's not sure what has prompted it. Maybe he banged his head?
Elsewhere, rehearsals at Eddie's turn out to be a bit more eventful than expected when some local hoodies appear on the doorstep. Luckily for the band, the hoodies' appearance coincides with the impromptu arrival of Phil and Ashton, and Phil immediately sends the hoodies packing.
At the birthday party, Adi is ecstatic that the audience is full of girls. The gig goes well until the hoodies from earlier show up - it seems they saw the invite on the internet. Will Phil's heroics backfire?
