It’s almost that time when the Christmas songs you either love or loathe feel like they are being played non-stop.

This year, a band based in the Vale have come up with a different festive number to get you dancing and in the Christmas spirit.

Autolegs, so-called because they hope when you hear their song you will automatically start dancing, have released ‘Get Your Santa On.’

Filmed at the Santa’s grotto at World’s End Garden Centre in Wendover, the song is a cheesy Christmas tune for the whole family to enjoy.

Charlie Wood, 35, who lives in Watermead in Aylesbury has always had a passion of music and now he has set his sights on hitting the UK charts.

He said: “I visited World’s End last year with my family and it is tradition for them to put a grotto there.

“I spoke to the manager and they were up for it so they very kindly let us have the grotto for a day so we could film the video.”

Mr Wood takes the main role as Santa in the video, which has received more than 4,000 views since being uploaded to YouTube on Friday.

His fellow band member Ivan Kokuti, from Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire, appears as a reindeer while his wife Emma stars as Mrs Santa.

There is even an appearance in the video from the couple’s two-year-old daughter Chloe.

Mr Wood said: “Some people on Facebook have been suggesting it could be the Christmas number one.

“We just want as many people as possible to hear it and enjoy it.”

Mr Wood, who grew up in Steeple Claydon, formed his first band ‘Bad Volume’ at the age of ten.

Last year, another band he formed, Almost Midnight, performed at the Hobble on the Cobbles event in Aylesbury town centre.

In 2013, the couple also recorded a charity song ‘A Million Hearts’ as part of a community effort to help former Bedgrove School pupil Alex Novakovic raise £300,000 for an operation on a brain tumour.

The song ‘Get Your Santa On’ is available to buy from music retailers including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.
