Stourbridge Navigation Trust were most grateful to a number of bands who at very short notice filled in over the recent Open Weekend to cover a late cancellation … no panic ! We noticed that one of the bands, The Shambolics, had recorded a video clip in the Brindley Room down at the warehouse and thought that this was newsworthy because despite the room being used for a plethora of purposes, this is the first time, to my knowledge, that a band has made a video clip and posted it onto You Tube for potentially Global digestion.
I must admit that when I heard the band playing in the beer tent (where else !) I was most impressed as clearly the band are talented, technically competent and played some great tunes whilst having a great time – I particularly liked the “bluesy” numbers, though there was something for everyone to enjoy and let their hair down to.
I believe that by helping us out at short notice was mutually beneficial – certainly it solved an embarrassing problem for SNT but also the band promoted themselves really well and received a number of enquiries for potential bookings – not surprising and much deserved.
Anyway, we hope that you enjoy the short clip which shows the band performing “The Letter” in their own inimitable style in the Bonded Warehouse.
