A popular Bath band known for their lively, high tempo numbers had the plug pulled on their act last night – because they were too loud.
The Bath Blues Brothers had been booked to entertain shoppers at the Christmas Market but, after taking to the stage, were told they were too noisy to continue.
The decision to bring the concert to an end was made by Bath Tourism Plus, which organises the annual market.
It was left to its chief executive Nick Brooks-Sykes to ask the band to stop, five numbers into its set, which started at 7pm.
Boos greeted his intervention at the gig by Bath Abbey.
