Not Our Most Popular Number...

Recent investigation of the YouTube videos listed in the Hear Us! section to the left, has shown that Watermelon Man, for a long time the band's grand finale and an opportunity for gratuitous introduction of band members by Mike, is no longer the most viewed. The version included here was recorded at The Stompers' Xmas Xtravaganza, Market Drayton, 29/12/2005 and features Mike Gray (soprano sax); Keith Crane & Emily Floyd (tenor saxes); Brian Jones (piano); Paul Hobbs (guitar); Dave Towers (bass); Phil Asma (drums).
