New Vaudeville Band, The

The 1966 UK #1 single Winchester Cathedral was actually recorded by a group of studio musicians assembled by writer, producer and lead singer Geoff Stephens.

When the novelty song became a transatlantic hit, Stephens hastily collected what became The New Vaudeville Band – assisted by Bob Kerr of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band – to take care of public appearances, television and tours.

In 1967, The New Vaudeville Band released the On Tour album, with the single Peek-A-Boo, which made the Billboard chart that February and reached #7 in the UK Singles Chart.

Further UK hits followed with Finchley Central (#11) and Green Street Green (#37).
