Marianne Hay…photo of my late husband who used to be the DJ at the 58 Club when it changed to Pebbles and knew all of the local groups including King Rod well.  It would be interesting to hear if anybody remembers him.

Linda Day… I remember going to the 58 club.

Chris Baker… Played there a few times before DJs were invented.

Virginia Davis… I remember going to pebbles

Barry Newton… If its the Henry I remember he had a brother Stuart.

Mick O’Dowd… Yes I remember him. I DJ’d there after him but still remember him. Was his brother Stuart who ran the place for a time? Same gear and the sparkly stage ribbons as when I worked there.

Rob… 58 club, do you remember the bikers from Tenterden ? Always seemed to be fighting with the skinheads – tullett boys ? !!

Harry Randall… 58 club used to be run by our manager Bill Tribe I think his name was 1968 When “The Loyd Milligan Sound ” an 8 piece soul band I was in went pro to Germany!

Gerry Fortsch… What a great picture, I remember Henry very well, had some good times together in the day, always a gentleman. Peace & Love. At a later date than this there was a Scotsman named Colin working at the club, I think he went to Australia, does any one know what happened to him?

David Edwards… I remember doing some building work for the fella who owned it. He was a bailiff/ debt collector absolutely straight as a die and a good egg. Remember rebuilding the stage which was originally ply sheets on beer crates.

Peter Smith… I have just stumbled across this site as I was doing some googling on my Dads old club ‘Pebbles’. He is John Smith the debt collector David Edwards spoke about. What a lovely, accurate description of my Dad, thank you for the kind words, it has made his day!

David Edwards… Glad to make Peter’s dad’s day hope John is keeping well and best wishes to him

Steve Cooke… I knew the venue very well but not Henry. However, he does bear a striking resemblance to Stewart Hay who was the landlord of Pissaro’s in Hastings for years. He was a great supporter of live music and hosted the first ever Beatles Day.

Mick O’Dowd… Yes Steve he was Stuarts brother. Hi Peter was your Dad Peter & His Wife Rispa? If it was I worked for them as DJ and found them both to be extremely nice folks. I’ve still got the cocktail shaker (engraved) that they gave to all their staff when they left. I think he sold it to Henry’s brother Stuart Hay.

Alan Vale… FAL = Futuristic Aids Limited great name for amps and speakers lol
