Mumford & Sons ejected from Atlanta strip club for breaking rules.

Sep 16, 2013

The first rule of Strip Club? Don't take pictures in a strip club!

Jingly jangly indie folk band Mumford & Sons decided to follow a gig at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park on Tuesday 10th September with a visit to The Clermont Lounge, a local strip club. The band had heard that the club was holding a karaoke night, which was more than likely the predominant reason for their attendance, it definitely had nothing to do with boobies.

According to TMZ, the alleged incident began innocently enough when banjo player Winston Marshall decided to take part in the karaoke. While he sang, his band mates Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwayne, decided to get some footage of his performance on their phones.

Unfortunately for Marcus Mumford and co, they had neglected to read one of the many signs inside and out of the venue stating clearly that the use of cameras in the club was strictly prohibited.

They were warned several times by the DJ. However, instead of heeding his words the band continued to film, hurled expletives at him and complained that he was ruining the song. At which point the staff of the club decided that enough was enough and removed the band from the venue.

Somebody even managed to get some grainy phone footage of the incident which can be seen below.

Jack Barnes, a spokesperson for the Clermont Lounge recounted the incident to USA today.

“At least one member of the band was taking pictures and when they were asked not to take the pictures they became verbally abusive and were asked to leave.”

The band and their representatives are yet to comment on the incident.
