The NWRA House Band

The NWRA House Band

The North Walton Ratepayers Association House Band were active from 2000 to 2003, notably with their ‘variety night’ events with The NWRA Choir and various other performers. The band’s line up included Paul Rafferty (later of Hot Club de Paris), Colin Cromer (formerly of Rooney), amongst other, constantly shifting, personnel. They never released any records. Until now. In 2018 Owd Scrat will present a recording of their most ambitious achievement, the post-hardcore rock opera Tony’s A Winner which they toured with The NWRA Operatic Society in 2003.
