The group played throughout the 1960s in and around Altrincham and Manchester. They beat the Hollies in a national competition held at the Plaza.  They played at Manchester Palace with the Kinks, and Shane Fenton. They played with the Rolling Stones at the Tower Ball Room in New Brighton and with almost all the top groups at some time. 

They were resident group at Altrincham Ice Rink and were regulars at the Stamford Hall, Altrincham.

Our youngest daughter came across our band page a couple of days ago, not quite sure how, have not had the chance to ask her yet.
We played al over the north west of England and North Wales up to Carlisle.
Additionally we played the cavern in Liverpool regularly. I am still active musically, gigging with youngest daughter and writing, I have been in touch with Tim the lead guitarist in recent years, but have not been able to locate Vic or the others.
I now reside in North Yorkshire.
We had a modelling 'gig' with George Best when he opened his boutique in Sale, 'interesting'.

Visited the cavern a few years ago to see our 'brick' in the wall and have photo taken on the stage.
Cheers Sean
