Four lanes male choir hit all the right notes on a recent trip to Taunton Deane Services on the M5.
Cornwall based Four Lanes Male Voice Choir were on their way back after singing in Lancashire when they stopped at the service station.
The choir had hoped to find a cathedral to sing at unaccompanied but were unable so they seized the day and started singing at the next best place - the service station.
Choir secretary, Ashley Hosking, said: "We had hoped to find a cathedral - but we had no luck so we decided why not?
"At the time we pulled up at the station we were one of eight choir filled coaches.
"When we started singing some members joined in but when we sang one of the songs there were almost 200 of us all singing and standing - it was a great moment."
The choir which has been running for 72 years has 54 members aged 18 and upwards and regularly performs at concerts and events.

Cornwall came alive with a world of music earlier this month as 2,000 singers of all ages and nationalities brought their own songs and cultures to entertain around 45,000 people in the 2017 International Male Choral Festival.
The world’s largest male choral event welcomed 60 choirs for 50 concerts, competitions and celebrations in 40 venues across the county from Bude to Land’s End, Porthleven to Saltash and everywhere in between. Singers from nine to 90 years old performed in churches and gardens, theatres, castles and major tourist attractions - with organisers estimating that the influx of choirs, their entourages and festival visitors have brought more than £1million into the local economy.
Cornish winners came from bottom to top of the county with Mousehole Male Voice Choir taking the title for Overall Best Cornish Choir while Tintagel MVC were the Best Cornish Choir for 40 Voices and Under.
