Mike Raxworthy… Super-Ska Night 2019!…It’s getting closer –  Friday 13th September 2019….the best party of the year and it’s in my music marquee on Hastings Beach in the heart of the Old Town. Get advanced tickets for only £10 from Hastings Tourist Information office on the seafront near Iceland (£12 on the door). I’ve got two superb bands. The Intercepteurs on tour from Wiltshire and The hi-energy Tonics – local and loud! Superb lightshow and real ales from Harveys Brewery. Don’t miss the ‘After Party’ across the road from 11pm in The London Trader. We’ve invited some ‘faces’ from the Ska and Reggae World to mix some tracks and meet and greet!

Paul Farnborough Tribute – Chatsworth Hastings 11th September 1990

supplied by Pete Prescott

Peter Shaw….At the beginning, Paul took a risk using the Tuesday night slot in deference to his fathers wishes…when his dad saw the £1000 takings early on the following Wednesday morning, Tuesdays at the Chatsworth became a regular slot and for Jim Jim and The Jims a fun residency…..this particular night was an emotional journey for all including Paul’s beautiful wife and all staff…..I was delighted to be involved playing for both Johnny Mars and of course, the Jims. RIP PF.

Pete Prescott….sweet guy, didnt know him that well.when my first daughter was born he came out at the chats with a bottle of champs.very nice thought. I remember this night well. Sadly Ray wasn’t there so we had a short set. But it was a good turnout for Paul. Nice guy !

Phil Gill….Have that poster on my dining room wall – great night, top bloke. Paul made Tuesday nights a lot of fun.

Wesley Magoogan….Paul was a real gentleman.

Johnny Mars….Hi, the good old days!!

Terry Pack talking about memories at Mr Cherrys….I nominate Chris Cozens’ one and only trumpet solo on ‘Jealous Woman’ at Mr Cherries!

Kevin Burchett… he was a great guy and he was a regular at Scalliwags and a friend of Derek Reades so had a complimentary entrance everytime he came
