Manchester In Crowd

Formed from Bobby Dell and the Dellstars, the band took the name "Manchester In Crowd" because a group from London called 4+1, who played regularly in Manchester, grabbed the name first and so became ‘The Incrowd’

l-r: Fred Robert Shaw (roadie), Antonio (Toni) Bonacci (bass), Bobby Crossland (vocals),
Eddie crossland (rhythm), Les Farrel (lead), Tony Macdonald (drums, van driver)
