NVCB record Lockdown tribute to NHS

As one of our own in the band works in the ICU at Northampton General Hospital, the band got together online to put together our cover of ‘What a Wonderful World’. Thanks to the help of James Norden at we’ve been able to produce this very professional looking video, which has already featured in the Northampton Chronicle.

Thanks to all in the band and to James for putting this all together!
