Blues Brothers back for free gig in Bath
A band whose free concert in Bath was unceremoniously cut short at the weekend is to return with another gig in the New Year.
The Bath Blues Brothers have booked the city’s Chapel Arts Centre for a free gig on January 11 after its two-hour slot at the Christmas Market was brought to an end after just 20 minutes amid noise worries.
The 13-piece band were gutted by the decision to end their performance outside the abbey on Saturday night but have been touched by the response of local people, and have also seen their profile soar.
The band will now play at the Lower Borough Walls venue from 8pm.

Band member Mark Sellick said: “When our performance was cut short last Saturday, we were as disappointed as those that had braved the cold to come out and support us. We feel that we should now give those people an opportunity to watch the remaining 90 per cent of a Bath Blues Brothers gig, and would like to invite the rest of Bath to join them in enjoying what Bath Tourism Plus sadly missed out on.”
BTP, which organises the market, had booked the band but then chief executive Nick Brooks-Sykes had become concerned at the volume and had asked the group to stop.
He said he did not want to antagonise residents whose co-operation was important to the 11-year-old market’s continuation.
