Pete Millington… Audience at the ITT Dance held at the White Rock Theatre on 10th January 1975 – My sister Jane is third from right front row (is in front second from right!) I recognise several other faces but not their names – any ideas?

Terry Hardwick… Stranger On The Shore . What a beautiful song that fills me with lots of warm nostalgic thoughts.

Paul Morfey… He also played the beer festival, on a Sunday, not sure which year?? About 15 years ago. That tune brings childhood flooding back.

Sue James… Saw him in Hastings, and my parents had stranger on the shore, I was only a few years old but loved listening to it

Shyboy – White Rock Pavilion 15th April 1983

Andy Burkes guitar vocals, Tim White bass vocals, Ernie Blocksage percussion vocals, Ernst Friedle percussion vocals, Frank Jennings keyboards, Kevin White drums, Charlie (Chas) Garrioch sax, John Plummer trumpet and Sue guitar.

Neil Steadman… Can’t still be going Alan??

Alan Esdaile… Someone said previously that Andy Burkes lives in America now Neil , I think Tim White is still making music but don’t know about the others. Remember seeing them at The Crypt and they were great.

Roy Penfold… The White brothers are still very much into making music, I bumped into Kevin about a month ago. Jon Plummer is in Canada.  Wasn’t there a ‘spin off’ jam band involving Paul Gambeau? I remember sitting in on one of their gigs at the Crypt….

Alan Esdaile… Looking at the website, could that have been Sleazy at Midnight, Roy?

Sue Graham… Great to come across the photos of Shy Boy, I’m Sue that played guitar with the band 1983/84. Still in Hastings playing music.

 

The Jack Tripp Show – White Rock Pavilion Hastings 1970

Nadia Compagnone… My birthday treat every year. Absolutely loved it, especially Bobby Crush!

Alan Esdaile… Bobby Crush could certainly play but his cheesy smile was annoying!

Tony Davis… I had a summer romance with one of the dance troupe on this show. I met her at the Astral Club

Barry French… Went to see his “Take A Tripp” show at the White Rock. This would have been early seventies. It was a typical, entertaining seaside holiday show. I remember his opening song was “Along the prom prom prom prom promenade” (You don’t get song titles like that any more)

Matt Thomas… Had that very same picture of Peter Goodwright up in the bar – would love to know where all those pictures went

Nick Prince… My parents took me to see that and I had the opportunity to be taken back stage to meet Freddie Davies. We have shared memories about the 1978 Summer Show over the years

Alan King… all this as punk was dying

Mick O’Dowd… Saw “Parrot Face” on Celebrity Pointless a couple of weeks back. He doesn’t appear to have changed much.

Joe Loss and his orchestra, The Dark Blues plus Spyke. Hastings Police Ball. White Rock Pavilion. 8th May 1972.

Peter Millington… Remember this evening very well, at least I thought I did. Looks like we (SPYKE) did 2 Gigs with Joe Loss. The first 28th March 1971 with The Roberto Bernardi Quartette and again on 8th May 1972 with The Dark Blues. SPYKE = Ginger Millington, Chris Sayer, Ian Williams, Terry Chedzoy.
