  • Fonzie agrees to get the guys tuxedos for a gig that the band has secured, the only problem is, in return, he wants to join the band.

    Richie and the boys are delighted when Howard manages to secure a gig for their band at one of his Leopard Lodge functions. The only proviso is that all the band members must be wearing tuxedos, which is a tall order as the cost of renting the required garmets is very high and Howard says that unless they have them, they can't play the gig.

    The boys are very grateful when Fonzie comes through for them and gets hold of the required tuxedos, the only problem being that in return for his generosity, he wants to be a member of the band when they play the gig!

    On the night of the function, all the boys, including Fonzie, are dressed accordingly and all goes well until it's discovered that the instrument Fonz wants to play is the bongos drums. After a VERY loud and long solo, Richie is forced to tell Fonzie that he can't play anymore, a chore he is NOT looking forward to!

    Some funny moments in this one, well worth watching.
