Danny Hedge, Jon Cleary, Dave Walton, Roger Hubbard and Roger Carey (not in photo).

Alamo Leal… I was thinking here..way back in 1979, Roger Hubbard had a band called Delta Wing, with none other than Jon Cleary (now legendary piano player based in N.Orleans, from Crowhurst of all places) I used to go out with them frequently to gigs all around, Etchingham, Battle and many others. Do you know of anybody that might have any photos from them as a band?

Roger Hubbard… Jon’s just contributed to my new solo album on four tracks. He comes from Cranbrook Kent, by the way!

Martyn Baker… Fantastic band!

Alamo Leal… Yes..and just to think that Jon used to play guitar on that band..and he was already a great player..Now everybody knows..A top “Old School’ piano player based in N. Orleans.

Roger Hubbard… playlist, Excellent.

Joe Knight… Great days.

Paul Dengate… I came across this rather nice large poster while having a sort out of boxes in the attic. March 25th 1977 at The Carlisle. Can’t particularly remember the gig, but I know I was there as I got paid!

Yvonne Cleland… Oh this was such a good gig! It was when Shipley had the Carlisle, wasn’t it? Alexis Korner was lovely x

Chris Baker… He also came down to play with Pete Sansom, his pianist from way back. I was playing bass with him at the time.

Tony Court-holmes… i was there

Paul Sleet… me too

Paul Dengate…. I’ve checked through my diaries and I reckon this was taken at the Steppin’ Out “party night” at the Archery, Eastbourne, 24th December 1977. Used to do the sound for the band, but this was probably a special party-piece. L-R: Wesley Magoogan, Ray Fenwick, Paul Dengate, Martyn Baker, Roger Hubbard. Drummer is possibly Andy Knight.or Kevin Hoad.

Andy Qunta… Great band!

Nigel Ford… Was Tich Turner in Steppin’ Out at some point,…soon after he left Stallion, I seem to remember?

Alan Esdaile.. Yes your right Nigel. Here’s a press photo from 1977…

John Wilde… One word. Hair.

Wesley Magoogan… Serious flairs!

Martyn Baker… Yeah, nice pair of lionels Wesley but I think if there was a biscuit around then Paul would have taken it.

Paul Dengate… Yes.

Dave Nattress… Samisen played the Archery Tavern once when I was with them – mid-week I think and If I remember correctly it was one of those gigs where the unappreciative audience had just about made double figures.

Geoff Peckham… in the main photo, The drummer? I reckon, by the jutting elbow, it’s Andy Knight. Am I right?

Len Smith… Believe you are correct, it is Andy Knight

Yvonne Cleland… I thought that was bonkers, but looking at that elbow – I know exactly what you mean!

Martyn Baker… It was definitely Kevin Hoad with us by then.

Ernest Ballard… Archery in Eastbourne. Archery shut down years ago. I remember seeing Jason Bonham there in his band Bonham

Pete Prescott… That would have been Kevin. Me and Titch were on that gig. We did Christmas songs and Smoke on the Water for the first time. Great band, Roger Hubbard wrote some wonderfully songs by himself and with Titch. I moved down to Hastings from north Kent that day. The band split up on new years eve.

Ernest Ballard… Happy days not splitting up lol on New Years Eve

Jackie Clarke… Loved The Archery. Good music venue.

Tim Moose Bruce… Great venue for Eastbourne. Saw Dr Feelgood there, Wilko with Norman Watt Roy and another memorable gig was Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts. Played there myself with the Blind Bats a couple of times. Now gone and a hideous Co op store there in its place.

Barry French… I played at the Archery with 1st Emotion in the early 70’s. The area where the band played was then called the Dilly Dally Bar. All the staff were dressed like Victorian waiters. The Victorian theme was carried carried on through the bar with Velvet upholstery on the Chairs & Velvet curtains. All very posh.

Terry Pack… I wasn’t there, but the drums look suspiciously like that stainless steel kit that Kevin had for a while.

Pete Prescott… If it was Dec 77 I was singing in the band. I was in it from Sep till they split in new years eve (7 days after I moved to Hastings to join them !) We played some Christmas songs and an impromptu smoke on the water. It was a great band that needn’t have split. But that’s what bands do best !

Martyn Baker… I was there. With Kevin Hoad, on drums. No question.

Roger Hubbard to record a live album at The Royal Standard – Feb 2015

rogerposterised

http://www.rogerhubbard.co.uk

The Old Town Blues Club… The Royal Standard.  From 9:00 pm until midnight – Bar until 1:00 a.m. FREE ENTRY

Thu 12th Feb 2015 – Alan King (solo) with guests, let me know if you want to come down to play and I can get a house band together
Thu 19th Feb 2015 – The Prisonaires & Roger Hubbard (recording a live solo album)
Fri 20th Feb 2015 – The Prisonaires & Roger Hubbard (recording a live solo album)

 

Alan King… I’ve finally managed to get my London band, The Prisonaires, down to Hastings for 2 nights and as Tony, the bass player, records the gigs and has previously produced both John Martyn & Sandy Denny we will be using the opportunity to try to record ROGER HUBBARD solo sets on both nights for a projected solo  ‘live’ album from Roger

The Band comprises of : Bobby Valentino – violin (Bobby has played with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty & Mark Knopfler, The Pistoleros with BJ Cole and Pete Thomas, The Fabulous Poodles and is probably best known for the court case surrounding the Young At Heart  violin riff – which he won)

Tony Reeves – bass (Tony was in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers with Mick Taylor, before becoming a founding member of Colosseum with John Hiseman, moving on to Greenslade and Curved Air, with Stuart Copeland and along the way produced both John Marty and Sandy Denny, he also played bass on Davy Graham’s first few solo albums)

Mike Paice – sax & harp (Mike was in Jools Holland’s Millionaires alongside Pino Palladino, he’s played with Ronnie Wood’s band, he was in Lonnie Donnegan’s band, The Jo-Anne Kelly Band, was a founder member of Red Beans & Rice and currently plays in Dana Gillespie’s band)

Les Morgan – drums (Les was in pub rockers Juice On The Loose, Ron Kavana’s band and The Jo-Anne Kelly Band with Mike.  Miller Anderson who fronted the house band for three series of the German TV show Superdrumming, featuring the world’s best drummers, regards Les Morgan as the best of the lot.)

Martin Brown – guitar (Martin has spent the last decade working in Vintage & Rare, Guitar Shop in Denmark Street, he is the go to session guitarist in London, our very own James Burton.)

Alan King – guitar (I worked with Bert Jansch, Davy Graham & Alan Hull back in the 1990’s, producing 2 albums for Jansch – both Mojo albums of the year – and one cited in the US Acoustic Guitarist magazine as being one of the 10 best singer songwriter albums of all time – and doing several arrangements with Davy. In a previous life, according to Malcolm Hardee, the godfather of alternative comedy, I was most of the brains behind Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out – which in the light of overwhelming evidence I now apologise for.)

Martyn Baker… Strangely enough….. I’ve just recorded a series of “down the pub” concerts, in my local in Shoreham-by-Sea, that feature the aforementioned Miller Anderson. He’s Brilliant!

ALAN KING

King provides esoteric guitar musings. He previously worked with 60’s guitar icons Bert Jansch & Davy Graham and the late great Alan Hull, producing two albums for Jansch, both of which were Mojo Magazines albums of the year. He is widely regarded as the man responsible for Jansch’s renaissance in the mid to late 90’s.

ROGER HUBBARD

Roger needs no introduction to the residents of the south east coast. Roger is the finest exponent of the bottleneck guitar in the country, bringing the deepest real blues, from a player who is the real deal.

‘Roger is as good as any blues guitarist in the UK and the USA’ – Muddy Waters

STEVE ‘BOLTZ’ BOLTON

Steve Boltz is the only other guitar player except Pete Townsend to play for THE WHO. He toured with them on their World Wide 25th anniversary tour when Pete was suffering from tinnitus.

He started his career in Atomic Rooster and has played with Bob Dylan, Keef Richards. David Bowie, Ray Davies, Scott Walker, Rick Wright and countless others.

A typical Thursday night on the not too respectable outskirts of Hastings Old Town

Beaten-down men and women cling to each other, factory girls in tight white hiphuggers do the bump, skinny bald old men in overalls jitterbug decorously with stout middle-aged women in sequined glasses.

Strangers huddle together against the cold.

You can feel it in your bones. You know a change is gonna come.

Run in worn out shoes. Steal the moonlight that creeps through the branches of the trees.

The Devil comes on Thursday nights. He comes in a big old car with whitewall tyres, suicide clutch and the stench of gasoline.

Picking and sliding on an old guitar, with drums pounding and a low down bass growling in syncopated rhythm.

Sometimes songs need singing, sometimes they need something else.

DEEP BLUES

Every Thursday from 30th Oct

Out here is a long way from Thursday night. Notes sweet, strangled and crying for life, or another drink, or more of that moonlight through guitars and amps that ‘aint got none.

There’s things out here that some folks ‘aint never seen.

Drums on fire with the Lord’s gasoline.

Bass notes running out of one vein and the Holy Ghost pumping something new in the guitar player’s wrist.

Feel that hand start a fluttering, making sounds on those strings like this.

Defrost your heart, blow a kiss this lonesome way.

Steal that moonlight, white car-a-coming, have no fear, lay down those pills, put away that liquor.

They caught The Devil and they got him in The Royal Standard.

And he got wings that look like leather and a long and forked tail and when he clatters it against the bar, sparks will fly.

The Royal Standard The Bourne, Hastings TN34 3AY – FREE ENTRY 9:00 p.m.
