Tim Moose Bruce… Was this the band who’s singer ‘s name was Norman D Ferrys?

Phil Gill… I played bass on that gig. I think we did three of those shows and they were always fun.

Colin Fox… We also got booked for a few private parties as well. One at Herstmonceux castle, the pub in Catsfield and Kings club in Eastbourne.

Pete Prescott… We also did the Valbonne club in London with Sam Fox. P.J.Proby was there (Looking rather odd in a tartan hat with fly fishing hooks stick in it). I’ve got a photo of that night. I’ll dig it out. I had to learn 48 rock and roll songs in one week ! We then cut that down to 24 and concentrated on those. Had some fun gigs.

Stuart Moir… Loved every minute of those gigs, sang backing vocals with Colin Fox and  Chris Howard. The girl dancers and the whole stage setting was 1st class. I’d love to see the photo at the Valbonne club, covered backing vocals with Colin Chris and Dave, it was a powerful 4 voice line up

Chris Howard… Loved every minute At the Hops, we put on a great show.

Stuart Moir… Loved performing on these with Chris Howard, Colin Fox, covering backing vocals behind Dave beano Easton and Peter Prescott on lead vocals, met some of the dancing troupe at Ray’s memorial do in East Hastings Angling club, that was an eye opener, it was great to see some of the remaining guys

Catherine Ireland… We were the dancers on that show, they were great fun

Chris Howard… These were great days I loved them.

Pearl Easton… I was half my age had a lovely time dancing the night away
