Clive Richardson asks… does anyone remember Rye and the Quarter Boys? A great rock jazz group with brass section from the 1970’s?
Steve Boyce… I was the guitarist from 1981-1982. I appeared on the single “Fantasy / Private number”. I still have my copy (no, it’s not for sale). We weren’t so much jazz as soul, very much in the Stax mould.
Graham Bates… … and I was the drummer! If anyone has any live recordings, please let me know.
Kevin Williams… …..and that’s me singing. The production is very much of it’s time but I still love it’s ‘live’ sound.
Dave Nattress… Rye and the Quarterboys!! Just back-tracking a bit and found your single – Private Number. Now I thought the original was great – I still do, but yours is just wonderful – better. Love it. Won’t be the last time I play it.
Kevin Sheppard… In reply to Kevin Williams. Is that Kev who worked at the London hospital? I went to a few of your gigs at the college hall and the place down the canning town flyover long gone now
Karen Mc Kernan… I just found a copy of this belonging to my dad !
Mike Tomlin… ………… and I played keyboards. In the band from start to finish!
Vivien Mead… I remember watching you in the green rooms Bristol. Great band
Gareth Ward… Very disparaging towards the Q-Tips after a gig at QMC I recall
Gregory Brown… I played Saxophone in this band. (in reply to Kevin Sheppard) Yes Kevin worked at the London Hospital.
