The Silhouettes – 1963

supplied by Pete Millington

Pete Millington… Another picture came out of the archives which I just had to colour – The Silhouettes in 1963, I think. L-R Robin Peglar, Mary McCarthy, Kirk Ronchetti, Kingsley Trowell RIP, and Rodney Trowell, I saw this line-up in the Old Town Market Hall – well ahead of their time and most groups in Hastings.

Barry French… These show the early 70’s band called Country Air. They played extensively around Hastings. This photo was taken at The Carlisle. On vocals is Erica Roberts, drummer is Cedric (Blue) Hellier, on rhythm guitar is Roger Messetter & lead guitar slightly out of shot was Mervin Toft.  The bass player (Not shown) was either Paul Hugget or Bruce ??? I saw them many times. They were a very good band playing Country & Western & a range of sixties & seventies music.

David Edwards… What happened to band members?
