Kevin Burchett… SPYKE PLAYED AT SCALLYS THE FIRST WEDNESDAY AFTER OPENING SOON AFTER THEY REFORMED TO BECOME JINKS
John Storer… Aah! …. those halcyon days of crimpolene flares! 🙂
Peter Millington… We didn’t reform, we just added Rod Trowell to our line-up and changed our name from SPYKE to JINKS. That change happened after 28th May 1975 and before our return to Scalliwags on 11th July that same year. Thanks for posting Kevin – my “style cred” has just hit the buffers!
Peter Gladwish… Just noticed my band, ‘Vogue’ were on this advert. We were regulars at Scallywags for quite a while.
Pete Prescott… I still have the Jinks album on cassette (light blue cover )

Kevin Burchett… SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT. Due to the popularity of the SCALLIWAGS REUNION event we have had to change to a bigger venue.THE MASONIC HALL in st leonards WHICH holds over 3oo people. so SCALLIWAGS is coming back to st leonards. the other benefits are Ann Buckland and Madeline Joyce Morton are going to do the buffet which will save us a lot of money giving the lifeboat more in donations. the DJs have said they will still do it for free. thanks to them Masonic Hall have kindly given us the hall for free. thanks to Masonic Hall for that.im sorry that we had to let down Richard Lavender and the angling club down but the main thing is to make as much money for the lifeboat as possible. so i hope everyone that has said they will come will still do so its still £7. 50p a ticket. Ann Buckland has her own catering business and Madeline Joyce Morton has many years experience in the hotel trade . so both are well up to the job in hand. thanks kevin and maddy. your thoughts and comments are most welcome under this thanks again
Sarah Crunden… Quite a few of us are really interested in coming to the Scalliwags reunion. Can you tell us how we get tickets? Many thanks. Look forward to hearing from you.
Alan Esdaile… If you live local tickets are available from: Seconds Away, 38 King Road, St Leonards-On-Sea, East Sussex. TN37 6DX Tel: 01424 447454. I will pass on your email to Kevin Burchett, who is organising the event and he maybe able to help with other options.
Kevin Burchett… Tickets are going fast for the reunion now anyone in the lists who hasnt got tickets seriously needs to think about getting them because if we carry on like this it will be by ticket only on the night out of a total of 300 tickets we only have 106 left it will be no good leaving it to the night . Thanks Kevin and Maddy, we would hate to see anyone who wants to go disappointed.
