A band featuring Carlisle drummer, Peter Crampsey, have become popular with one of America’s most iconic sports team.

The band, called Gathering of Strangers, may be set to make waves at the upcoming Super Bowl as one of their songs has caught the attention of the San Francisco 49ers.

Their song, ‘Red & Gold,’ is regularly played during the home games at Levi's Stadium in California, which has a capacity of just under 70,000 people.

After much discussion and searching for someone or something to tie with the song, they sent the track to the 49ers team in California, known for their iconic red and gold team kit, who wrote back expressing their love for it.

“It was my dad's idea as he said we needed to look for someone or something to tie it with the song,” said lead singer, Conor Rabone to the BBC.

"I have a few boys at work that like the NFL - one particular guy is from America.

"He mentioned the 49ers and they wear red and gold."

"They play it at the stadium at every home game to 70,000 people - it's very, very surreal.

"We have seen videos of it being played, it's just bizarre."
