Musicians Union says Keep Music Live 1970 sticker


supplied by Ernest Ballard

Ernest Ballard… 1970 union sticker which was stuck over a gig ticket, in Exeter with my first band called “August “. Was a 21 birthday bash.

Jan Warren… Still got the sticker and a badge!!

Dave Nattress… Remember these well!! When Damaris played the pier for the first time we all had to join on the understanding that local authority owned or operated venues would only allow union-member bands to perform there. These stickers were displayed avidly in cars and on guitar cases etc.
