FANS of pop rappers Blazin' Squad were out in force to meet the band in Great Yarmouth this week.
The band was greeted by hordes of mainly female fans to sign copies of the latest single Let's Start Again on Monday.
The appearance at Better Leisure in King Street was one of a series to promote the new release, the first since five of the original 10 members re-formed earlier this year.

“I liked all the original members, but the five left now are the best,” said Louise. “We have been waiting here about an hour and are really looking forward to meeting them.”
Friends Caroline Timmins and Samantha-Jade Seager, both 16 from Yarmouth, were among the fans eager to meet the band.
Caroline said: “I have been a Blazin' Squad fan since I was knee high, got all their CDs and really like the new single.”
Rapper Kenzie proved to be especially popular with the crowds of girls eager to be photographed with the band.
Kenzie, who is also famous for appearing in Celebrity Big Brother, said: “The girls and boys of Yarmouth have shown us great support and we really appreciate that.
“We did Pop Beach at Yarmouth and a few other shows up here in the past and judging by the response today will be coming a lot more.
“The single is about a relationship, not the band getting back together it's just a happy co-incidence that this is the first release since we re-formed.”
“We are making a video for the single then an album at the end of the year, so things are going well.”
Heavily influenced by the UK garage scene Blazin' Squad achieved six consecutive top ten hits including the number one single Crossroads.
Better Leisure assistant manager Matt Blainey said: “The band's music rep contacted us to say they were thinking of doing some signing sessions. Blazin' Squad must be the biggest band to appear at the store.”
