BROMSGROVE ARTS ALIVE MEMBERS, Samba band, Someone at the Door, took up the chance of a lifetime last weekend when they played live at Sainsbury's Anniversary Games.

The members went down to the capital for the special event, which was held to mark one year on from London 2012.

The band delighted the crowds at the Olympic Stadium during the three-day event, which ran from last Friday to Sunday (July 26 to 28).

Chairman Adam Joyce said for a community Samba band from Bromsgrove to be playing the Olympic Stadium was absolutely unbelievable.

"The band has been together for 15 years and has worked so hard to get to this point.

"It was our first over-nighter together and it brought us all together socially as well as musically.

"Playing the Olympic Stadium had a similar massive feelgood factor effect on Someone at the Door as London 2012 did on the whole country last year," he added.

The band also officially launched its second CD 'Road to Rio' at the event which will soon be available on iTunes, along with their first CD Someone at the Door.
