Martin Richter… impressive line-up !
Patricia Lloyd… Loved kings
Julie Morris… Often went on a Thursday night – loved it!
John Scaife… Peter Gordeno -Commader & The Pilot of Sky 1 (Submarine in UFO)
David Edwards… Imagine Ella Fitzgerald like a diamond atop a pile of also tans, Kings certainly pulled out all the stops there!
Jim Hobbs… Fair comment, but to give them their due, the others on the line up were big UK stars in their day.
Tony Court-holmes… Andre and i worked there
Cliff Bennett… What a programme!!!!????
Colin Creagh… Just look at the names
Terry Pack… The sad thing is that most ‘entertainment’ in Eastbourne is unchanged in 45 years. The Devonshire Theatre has pantos and Agatha Christie, the Congress has bands from the 60s, comics from the 70s and orchestral music from the 1800s, and the Bandstand has tribute bands all Summer. The idea that a musician like Ella could do a week long residency these days… if only.
Richard Cripps… Mum and Dad owned a chalet there, spent so many memorable years there from the age of 8  until it closed. Had the opportunity to see sooo many stars of the time there… and then across the road to the disco. Any one remember Nan on reception? or Barry the house drummer?
Michael Williams… I lived at Kings, as my father was public relations officer, I remember him introducing the acts on stage including Sandie Shaw, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck , Dusty Springfield and loads more. My father had an album with him shaking hands with all the stars before he introduced them on stage. That would have been the sixties.
Robert Searle… Clark-Elsom Collection,who remembers them? What ever happened to Graham Clark, the bass player?
Perri Ann Haste… I used to go there in the Mid to late seventies – always had a great time! – happy days… those were the days eh
Julie Morris… Thursday nights Perri – and still went to work the next day
Tony Court-holmes… went there a few times
