I can't tell you a lot about CBR, except there is a link between the Umbrella and CBR in the Al Docker, when he was organising the friday night band nights at the Umbrella, at least on three occasions I went with him to book some Birmingham bands for the Umbrella.

The first was Tea and Symphony (follow link for info on this band) booked for the Umbrella little theatre for Friday 21st August 1970 with Coventry folk rock band April as support. April were resident at the umbrella in that they rehearsed there.

There may have been more bands from the Coventry / Midlands area that we got from CBR but I can't remember all the sources of bands now. If someone has more information about this music agency, do get in touch!
