Regular work was in the Kumfy Club, Ashton, Tuesday nights backing the stripper! Also loads of working men's clubs throughout Lancs and Yorks.
A nice initiation ceremony was being offered a pint of cider in the dressing room of a club in Hyde - I thought it was really kind of the lads, until I realised they'd collectively filled the glass in the Gents!
Cliff nearly got us all into a fight on that first night by chatting up a bruiser's girlfriend!
At the top of the page you mention the Manchester Scene members, the bass player was Syd Davies.
In the early 60's I was the road manager for the Scene with Keith Loftus, Johnny Hart and Sid Davies, initially we were called Spring and various other names.
Also a band called MERVES BARDOTS with Merve Horrocks and again Steve Collins. Edward Jon Dynamo was another band I was roadie with again with Sid Davies and Steve Collins and finaly with my last band PARADISE early 70's with again Steve Collins (drums), Graham Braddock (bass), Bob Lee (lead guitar) and John Kitchen (formerly ROCKIN VICKERS on vocals).
We supported bands such as the Troggs, Fortunes, Equals, Swinging Blue Jeans, etc.
Congratulations on a great website - it brought back loads of memories.
I was indeed a member and frequent stand in bassman over the years for Wall Street. Also, as I'm sure you are aware, the cancer got the better of dear old Keith a few years ago. He'll always be remembered by some Wall Street veterans as 'Our Fealess Leader'.
My father loved playing with Wall Street (music was his thing). Sadly my father died suddenly on July 23rd 2013, after being diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
He held Pete, Graham, Keith, Pete C, Johnny and Bill with great respect. Loved music my Dad.
