Sarah Harvey…..Some Pier adverts featuring local bands… Felix and Damaris from April and May 1976 respectively.

Phil Thornton…..Damaris, were a great band, they supported Stallion a few times.

Yvonne Cleland….Felix! Great band!

Andy Qunta….I  remember Felix – they were excellent!

Chris Meachen…..Seventh Heaven came from the Isle of Wight, they were kind of early jazz funk

Mick O’Dowd…..Keep ’em coming Sarah!

Kev Towner… “Juvenile Fashion Parade” – how things have changed!!

Chris Boorman… Pretty sure I was at the Glitter Band gig!

Claire Triance.. How things change best summer hot

Richard Lavender… Remember the news of the world fishing comp. Won several rods over the years in that.

Dave Lelliott… Packed out at the Glitter Band

Nick Webb… Nice to see the Poster with my friends band Damaris on

Robert Searle… We supported The Glitter Band at the Pier when we were Easy Street,can’t say it was this date though. By the way, they were brilliant.

Iain Cobby… Nice to hear from Nick Webb, was that the Damaris we used green house pellets as smoke bombs and sent the audience of french students back 10 feet coughing and choking? I’m sure that was the gig that I have a recording of………………….

Dave Nattress… Iain, we definitely tried some pyrotechnics a few times – quite possibly your idea old chap or maybe Paul’s. Nick I remember you very well – best regards after 40 years!

Nick Webb… Cheers guys those where the days or night lol

Martyn Baker… Still got the album that I bought after the gig. Tres funky! Featuring Colin Bass on er ……. bass! Also………. Remember Bo Derek? She’s his sister!

Alan Esdaile… Never knew that Martyn. Mention Bo Derek and all I think about is Arthur! I know Colin Bass was in Camel.

Chris Meachen… Seventh Heaven are a band that intrigue me;- they were early exponents of jazz funk, a genre I wasn’t ready for at the time. I do know that they came from the Isle of Wight, & have often wondered if there was a Level 42 connection… Does anyone know any background?
