LOCAL BAND FROM THE PAST

Sadly three of the people in this pic are no longer with us.
Anyone remember the name of the group, or the band members?

:music ... The name of the group "The Devils Coachmen" ... :smt086.

Terry Rose who still has a good singing voice and a few other old rockers get together occasionally and perform as the Coachmen at local 1960s revival gigs, and are well worth going to see.

ANOTHER LOCAL BAND FROM THE PAST!

Postby sue1 » 13 Apr 2010, 10:10

Does anyone remember a group (probably 60's) called the Heartbeats. One of the members was a Pearman. I do not have a picture of them - sorry.

LOCAL BANDS

Postby Ted » 06 Jan 2011, 13:19

Hi all Bit out of our area but has anyone been to the sixties revival night at the UEA ? . Also I remember a good sixties band called Lucas and the Emporers .Think I saw them at the Sunshine,East Dereham . Believe Lucas is still gigging. I think the 'Strollers' are the only 60s band from this area still going with some of the original members,the Seymore brothers,Brian & David(?)and until recently Derek Brunton .Don't know about the drummer . :smt006 PS .Just remembered.......around ten years ago I was walking around Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales and stopped to look in a small shop/gallery with paintings in the window .Looked into the shop and saw a smiling face looking back and almost instantly realized it was a guy from the Grumbleweeds. He now earnt his living painting and selling his pictures.

LOCAL MUSIC and CINEMA(PICTURES !)

Postby Ted » 06 Jan 2011, 14:12

I think we were lucky. Those of us who grew up virtualy pre TV. Cafe's with a jukebox,good films at the pictures.Poeple on motorbikes . I grew up near Downham and so saturday night before running a car meant ....push bike up to the Connaught caf'e owned by Ken Hovel ,listen to music,Elvis,Del Shannon etc ,bottle of Coke,packet of crisps,go on pin ball,then up to the Castle caf'e for a pre'pictures visit. I remember some of the Lynn boys came over on their motorbikes . Can see them in my mind but can't remember any names. Usual bikes....BSA,Norton,Lea Francis. I do remember one of them worked for several years at the garage near Dodmans bridge . Sundays and there was the train ALL THE WAY to Hunstanton. Swimming pool.They closed this smashing sea front pool because it required lot's of work to maintain it.....ye !!!......perhaps the car park that replaced returned more profit !!! Later on I passed my test and toured around the area to see local bands and bigger names at the Corn Exchange.

Was lovely to see this picture. The third from left was my dad, Buggy (Michael) Wilson. Sadly he died aged 51 back in 94.
Great to see the bands memory lives on :)

Welcome to the forum Debbles. I remember your dad well. Just a bit older
than me but at Gaywood park school the same time. He lived on the Loke
later in life I seem to remember.

Somebody on here had a 4 track recording of Danny Ford and the Offbeats and was offering a copy if anybody required one-yes please.
Am trying to get a cd out of the groups that recorded at Bob Booths Recording setup, I have a number of recordings already, I gather the Escorts recorded as well if anybody has anything and possibly the Blackjacks.

Bob... I'll do you a copy as soon as you let me know how to get it to you. There are four tracks by The Sabres and four tracks by The Offbeats plus some rehearsal session by The Offbeats all recorded at Bob Booths studio 1964.. :)

An eagerly awaited new Charity CD is being released this week in response to many requests from music fans.
'Lets go back' Volume 2 is the brainchild of the King's Lynn Musical Nostalgia Committee and features 24 recordings by local bands from the '60's through to the new millennium with a few modern twists.
Production engineer John Self said the new album was a big step forward as he and London-based sound and recording engineer Peter Kiely had been able to enhance some of the older recordings that had originally been recorded on now obsolete equipment,and even the later recordings have been given a modern sound.
Proceeds and donations from the sale of the disc will go to The Friends of The Stroke Unit at the Q.E.H. and the King's Lynn branch of The Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The release of the new CD is even more poignant as Mary Page, one of the lady vocalists on the album, passed away recently and the Committee hopes the new disc will help preserve her memory.
Committee organizer Geoff Stinton said "This really is a wonderful effort. 'Let's go Back' Volume 1 did very well and we are hoping that Volume 2 will do even better - it features all genres of music including Rock, Jazz, and Country so there really is something for everyone".
The CD costing £6.99 is available from a number of outlets including Pastimes in Tower Street, Trues Yard Museum in North Street,The Record Shop in St.James Street as well as Witley Press in Hunstanton and the Downham Country Garden Stores in Downham Market.
You can also buy your copy from Geoff Stinton by phoning him on 01553 761017. Thank you.

Great news. Cannot wait for my copy! Anyone wanting a stocking filler could not
do better that the two discs, Geoff's and this volume two. Magic.
