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.

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

Martyn Baker… I was at this gig with a few of my college friends. It wasn’t all that busy. He was already a legend, yet playing upstairs at The Carlisle! Anyone else remember? It was a somewhat chaotic gig as far as I remember, but Alexis was in great form.

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.

‘Really one of the most remarkable and memorable live performances I’ve ever seen’

Tickets are £10, available on-line in advance or directly from the venue in advance or on the door on the night. For more information and tickets… https://www.thepiper.club/events

Wee Jock… Awesome

Neil Partrick… Is this liable to sell out in advance? I mean it should.

Alan King… Don’t know! Best to try to get advance tickets. The venue uses a ticket app called DICE, which is smart phone / mobile only and you need to download the app, i’m sure it works for youngsters but possibly not appropriate for the demographic for this gig – i’ll try to set up a wegottickets page to accommodate those who can’t handle the new technology – but there is also the walk up – tickets on the door approach – so get there early.

David Edwards… The trouble is people in Hastings are breastfed when it comes to music and begrudge paying to see artistes of such calibre when they should pay. I hope it is jam and packed full

Tom James Cowan… If you use DICE to book but don’t have a smartphone you can just print off the ticket, or the Piper have a list of ticket purchasers on the door as well….
