for more details…
Jim Breeds… Not my cup of tea, but others might be interested in this …
Tiffany Barton… This will be great as Tony Blackburn can’t resist this Supreme music of 60s x
Ernest Ballard… Tickets on sale Thursday x
Martin Richter… sounds like a good night
Surprised they put opposite the cinema, when it was opposite The Disc Jockey record shop.
Dizz Corinne Ryder… Was it above Chelsea Girl?
Barry Upton… I think it was once Toffs night club ?
Dizz Corinne Ryder… that rings a bell, was just a bit too young to go though!
Maureen Fuller… The Astrel Club was where the Pamdor Club originally was above Chelsea girl entrance at the back. My ex husband Les Martin used to work their
Yvonne Cleland… I used to love the Astral Club! Late late nights and a free meal hahaha
Maureen Fuller… Can you remember the name of the lovely lady who cooked the late night suppers loved her curries?
Yvonne Cleland… I can’t, I’m sorry, but her spag bols and chicken in a basket were to die for! xx
Leigh Wieland-Boys… Yep – there regularly, always had the whitebait
Sam Rosewell… Was this Flamingo’s in the 80’s? (Not that I went in there, slightly too young!) Was a better scene back in the day….
Alan Esdaile… Yes, Sam.
Neal Hunter…It was great being a DJ there. Broke my leg falling down the stairs between the bar and disco at 1am on 22 Oct 1974 which was the day my son was born. Great days.
Tony Davis… was great Djing there with Merlins Music Box. Was it Betty that did the food?
Maureen Fuller… don’t think that was her name she was a Greek lady l think
Tony Court-holmes… used work behind the bar there
Ian Quinnell… AAHHHH good (but slightly vague) memories of those days
I think this would be Neil Christian’s Crusaders, who had a solo hit with That’s Nice in 1966. If so could be Jimmy Page, Albert Lee, Mick Abrahams or Richie Blackmore on guitar at this gig? Anyone confirm? As well as the brilliant Steve Marriott, also interesting cutting as mentions Trevor Spears winning a cash prize and not forgetting popular local group The Humperdinks.
Andre Martin… They would not get away with posting such details today, I recall the Wedddings reports who gave details of the couples new homes etc what a boom for the thieves, whilst they would be away on honeymoon.
Pete Prescott… Someone has generously donated this guitar to Beatles Day to raise more money for Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s been signed by Chris Farlowe, Mike d’Abo, The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Fourmost, The Dakotas And the new Amen Corner. We will put it on E Bay but If anyone is interested in buying it please contact us. The reserve price is £175.
