The group did however play a variety of other gigs which included three at the same venue. 

Their brand of driving R&B was popular at the TA Army Barracks at Ardwick Green, Manchester.

Firstly they played at the Officers Mess ball, then the Sergeants Mess ball and finally the Lower Ranks "brawl" where the beer flowed freely, (it was free).

The group said they were lucky to get out alive!.

The Dreamweavers manager was Les Hammand from Old Trafford.
He bought the bands stage gear, [White suits]. Very dapper.
