Motleys on Film

Get that jab and go

When the NHS approached the The Motley Crew in March 2021 to come up with a sea shanty to promote Covid-19 vaccinations, we put our thinking caps on and came up with Just Get That Jab and Go

Sung to the tune of the Wellerman, with arrangement by our own Chris Bloor and lyrics by Motley SWAG (shanty wives and girlfriends) Melanie Bridle, it was recorded and mastered by Ray Hayden of Opaz Multimedia.

Our tune, set to a video recorded in various locations around North Essex and Suffolk – including our home town of Brightlingsea – gained nationwide press, radio and TV coverage, including two live breakfast tv appearances on the same morning. A video of our appearance on BBC Breakfast below) is below.
