Mick O’Dowd….Yeah I saw them there as well. Good live band in their time. Also saw Ben E King, The Elgins, Percy Sledge (complete with padded trousers!) and Gene Chandler. Oh wot joyload!
Jim Breeds….OMG. I went that night! I just noticed on that last poster …Missing a Y on the first Chirpy. Somebody gave Dave Dee and Beaky the night off on August 6th.One E too many in Gardner. One E too many in Geno.
One E too many in a nightclub became a bigger problem in the 80s of course.

Ad from 1974
Tony Davies…I saw Hot Chocolate play there several times
Colin Bell… if anyone has photos of opening night of Aquarius in George Street I-d love to see them as I did opening night with Middle Of The Road, great night and fond memories of Sally Carr trying to nick my trousers! But that’s a whole other story…..!

John Storer…“There Was A Time” by Gene Chandler …. the best Northern Soul track ever!
Jim Breed… “Aston”, Gardener, And “Dike”? lol. Something tells me our journo wasn’t quite hip 🙂
