Ottumwa tries to lure Mumford & Sons with video

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — A small southeast Iowa city is hoping a video of residents performing to Mumford & Sons music will convince the English folk rock band to play for their community.

Organizers behind the Bridge View Center, an Ottumwa venue that features music concerts and other performances, recently shot about six hours of footage for a promotional video that includes students and city leaders. The video will soon be sent to the band.

The Ottumwa Courier reports (http://bit.ly/19hzWmM ) the video features the band’s hit song, “I Will Wait,” but changes the words to “We can’t wait.”

The band’s publicist says the group is done touring this year after a Friday show in Bonner Springs, Kan.

Mumford & Sons recently made U.S. stops as part of the Gentlemen of the Road concert series.
