White Rock Pavilion Hastings 1981

Matt Thomas… I think there was a lot of these acts signed photos framed on the bar walls when I was working there

Gerry Fortsch… Sadly I missed the Nolans.

Martin Richter… wow! what a variety

Stuart Huggett… If you don’t remember the Oky Doky Man you weren’t there, man.

Peter Fairless… Oh, we were there, Stuart. “Oky Doky, then!”

Paul Huggett… Geez, no wonder I never went there then..

Dennis Torrance… The prices then quite amazing I think

Clifford Rose… You’d a thought March would have been the best month for the Grenadier Guards?

 

 

The Tommy Cooper Show – White Rock Pavilion 9th July 1978

Matt Thomas… Two people I remember from my time at the theatre getting a mention I see – Phil Cronk & Roger Dennett

Pete Brazier… I had just finished cleaning the Pier Ballroom when I saw him enter the Pub on the pier! Wearing a light grey suit and so Tall! Too embarrassed to say anything I just Smiled and Nodded! And he smiled back! Wish I’d said something but then I wasn’t as forward as I am now lol (that was before I had stood at the front of a band for the first time! Surprising how that makes you more confident each time you do it

Rosemary Hughes… Took my Son and Niece to the cinema in Eastbourne and who should we sit next to Tommy and his Family what a laugh that was. He laughed after everyone had stopped and then bought us all an ice cream in the interval

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

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.
