Jane Hartley…  I must have been there!

Jane Dorsett….use to go there a lot, chicken &chips,in a basket………good days……….

Jane Hartley…..Me too, probably there at the same time!  When I started going to Bonita’s, Colin Bell was the dj! After that it was Mick, Jim, Tim and Dave.

Kevin Burchett…..used to be my favourite haunt before scalliwags

Mick O’Dowd…..Took over as resident DJ after Colin Bell. Chicken & chips in a basket for 60p to get around licensing laws. Wonderful! I was there in 72

Andre Martin…..Here is something from the time – From Hastings Observer 1971

Alan Esdaile……Used to play a lot of James Brown when I was dj there.

Yvonne Cleland…..Ah Bonitas. What larks!

Andre Martin…..Somwhere Alan we have photos of Colin in Bonitas – do you have copies, I cannot find any at the moment

Jane Hartley……Did Colin come back again or did you stay until 74/75 Mick? You know that saying ‘if you remember the 60’s’, I seem to have that problem with the70′!!!!!

Mick O’Dowd…..I don’t think he did Jane . As you say age blurs!

Mark Edir…..25p including supper hahaha was that how much it cost , for me details like that are all lost in the mists of time 🙂

Jane Hartley…..How do you boys remember so much? I couldn’t remember who dj’d bonitas after colin bell and before mick jim tim and dave

Mick O’Dowd…..It was I who followed on from Colin”Ding Dong” Bell Jane

Jenny Tyler…  I  can’t believe the prices

Peter Millington… SPYKE – Worth every penny LOL

Jon McCallion… we played there after doing the record in London that same day

Mick Knights… Always wound up there after chucking out time on a Saturday night, I was most probably there for the Christmas eve, the lure of a chicken and chip supper would have been too great!!

Caz Simpson… I loved Bonita’s

Pete Millington… We (SPYKE) played there on 22nd December, 5 weeks after my lovely daughter (Becky) came into our world. What a Christmas present!
