Mumford & Sons were allegedly kicked out of a strip club in Atlanta, after a member of the band tried to film in the establishment, which broke its no filming rule.
It has been reported that Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall, Ted Dwane, and Marcus Mumford, went in to the Clermont Lounge in the Georgian city, as they were there to enjoy its karaoke night.
However, Winston Marshall, who plays banjo in the band, is reported to have stepped up on stage and then attempted to sing for the crowd.
To document this moment the rest of the band, Marcus, Ben, and Ted, decided to film Mr Marshall’s performance on their mobile phones. Unfortunately, because they were inside a strip club, they were asked to stop filming as it is against the establishments rules to record inside.
The DJ repeatedly asked them to stop and put their phones away. However, each of them refused to stop, and they then even decided to hurl abuse at the DJ. One of the band members even accused him of “ruining” the banjo player’s song.
After their altercation, the band were then asked to leave. Footage has since emerged of the incident, and a bouncer for the club can even be heard yelling, “Everybody out! Go, go, go!” Mumford & Sons have since been approached for a comment on the matter, however they have declined to comment.
Last month, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Will Forte, and Jason Bateman starred in the new video for the band’s single, “Hopeless Wanderer.”
Discussing the video, the band wrote on Facebook, “A massive pair of thumbs-up to Sam Jones for directing and his cast of young budding actors. We’re sure they all have bright futures ahead of them.”
Helms tweeted, “Proud to be a fake member of @MumfordAndSons I think we should a lot of fake artistic integrity in the new video.”
