Remember Miriam Karlin in The Rag Trade…

Pauline Richards… Yes. Blowing a whistle shouting…..everybody out!!

Andre Martin… This Chris Gentry bloke get about – when I think of all the events that we were involved in at some point, and now the organisations just have gone. The town is that much poorer and the young people missing out on so much. Just look at the admission price 2/- wow.

Mick O’Dowd… Hurst Court has gone as well Andre/Chris/Marshall etc.etc.etc

Andre Palfrey-martin collection

Peter Millington…..I make the date as being 7th February 1970

Rob Sargent… I remember the photo session, on the beach just below the Wish Tower. Hope you’re all still rocking and enjoying it as much as I am.

Lynne Norris… I found this site accidentally and it triggered many memories of my teenage years and some really good music. I remember The Spooks and 4-Bidden well when they played upstairs at Club Continental. As a 16-year old, I absolutely adored Dave Shaw and I was beside myself when we moved to Burrow Down and Dave Shaw and his family lived just over the road from us at Den Hill.  Dave had this big old tank of a car and he would give me a lift sometimes.  I am pleased that he kept on rocking and am I sad to hear that he has passed away.

Delroy Williams Show, St Johns Wood & Chris Gentry Hastings Pier – 31st Dec 1968

 

Andre Palfrey-martin collection

Mick O’Dowd… excellent concert, highly underrated.

Alan Esdaile… Managed Delroy in the 70’s, always puts on a great show and a really nice guy. Still going strong as part of Desmond Dekker’s Aces tribute.

Andre Martin… Remember the night well, unfortunatly not a very big crowd, so the ballroom was a little chilly even with the Gas fires working. Good programme and headliners were excellent.

Pete Fairless… What did Chris Gentry show, we wonder?

Andre Martin… Now that would be telling.

Alan Esdaile… style, flair, presentation skills and great music.
