Anyone remember seeing this band? Some great acts coming up on this ad, Ben E King, Marv Johnson, The Elgins and Percy Sledge.

Kevin Burchett… on my world travels i was on the same plane as Ben E King and his band between L..A AND Honolulu.

Mick O’Dowd… Went to the Ben E King gig and met him backstage where he signed an album cover for me. Nice bloke with freckles! Also saw The Elgins , Marv Johnson & Percy Sledge who came on wearing a romper suit that left nothing to the imagination and he new it. Good show even so.Also remember seeing Gene Latter there sometime, another superb act. This was the only place in Hastings then that had soul acts on as Hastings was known as a rock town.
