The Agents

Freddie? vocals
Tony ? guitar
Richard Henshaw drums
Frank ? bass

The Agents played summer seasons in the Isle of Man at The Texas Bar in the capital, Douglas.

I played in the band in 1972 aged 19. Line up: Rick Henshaw on Drums, Tony ? on guitar, The Lead singer can't remember and Frank on Bass. 

Freddie and the Dreamers were resident at the main venue which may have been the Lido but not certain on this. 

Ronnie Dukes and Ricky Lee were support to Freddie and the Dreamers. A quite superb Showband who also need including on Manchester Beat.

Hi ... I remember the Agents coming to the Isle of Man in 1969.  They took part in a battle of the bands competition at the Palace Lido. The group actually stayed in my mum and dads hotel. I was 14 at the time .I can remember that they were a 4 piece band.

I can only remember the hames of three of them .... Colin on guitar, Frank on bass and Freddie on lead vocals and guitar. Not sure of the drummers name. Ihave always wondered what happened to them. Idon't remember them coming back to the IOM in 72 but by then I had started up as a soul and motown dj...something I am still doing to this day.
