Snelving Club St Andrew's Night Dinner


The Rolling Stones: Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones and Keith Richards

The Club was privileged to welcome the band to their St Andrew's Dinner in November, 1962. After performing several of their blues numbers,
the Stones surprised the company with their arrangements of "Willie Brew'd A Peck O' Maut", "Willie Wastle" and of course "Cock Up Your Beaver" into the same bargain.
